Go Ape in Freedom Park!

Rope ladder climb

Go Ape has recently opened their first outdoor adventure course in Virginia, located just minutes from Colonial Williamsburg, and right next door to Liberty Ridge, in Freedom Park.

The creators of Go Ape adventures take one lush, green forest  and a healthy dose of breathtaking scenery; blend that with a smattering of treetop high wires, tricky crossings (using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire) and wind-in-your-face zip lines; then finished it all off with a mega dose of people in search of their inner Tarzan.

Freedom Park is now home to Go Ape’s biggest treetop course yet — made up of numerous rope ladders, 37 new and exciting crossings to include the Trapeze, Wobbly Ladder, Big U and Spider’s Web, 2 tarzan swings and 5 zip lines.  There are 5 individual sections within the course, each section taking you higher into the forest canopy and finishing with a zip line more exciting than the previous one!  Zip #5, the grand finale to the course, is a mammoth 600 foot ride!

After your adventure, don’t miss the rich historical experiences also found in Freedom Park.  Visitors can explore the site of a 18th century cemetery, the Revolutionary War Battle of Spencer’s Ordinary and recreated cabins showing on the nation’s earliest Free Black Settlements in America.  In addition to being surrounded by history, the park features two miles of hiking trails and more than 20 miles of some of the best mountain biking trails in the region.  Be sure to swing by the brand new visitor center and catch up on all the facts of the park.
