Things to do at Go Ape Buxton review

Go Ape at Buston Country Park in Derbyshire is home to one of their more challenging courses. There is just one challenge which is the Treetop Challenge.

Treetop Challenge – This is one of the highest Go Ape courses and it features one of their biggest Tarzan Swings. There are a whole host of zip wires and an extended course with its own tree-to-tree section to fly through. The longest zip wire is 159 metres. The challenge takes 2 to 3 hours to navigate your way around. There is a minimum age of 10 years and a minimum height of 1.4m.

Duration times including safety briefings. Once you’ve had your treetop fun there’s plenty in the park to keep everyone entertained. There are walks in the park including up to Solomon’s Temple, a Victorian folly built on a Bronze Age Barrow. You can also pay the entrance fee and visit the wonderful underground cave of Poole’s Cavern. More info about Buxton Country Park.

Please note – Most places may still require you to pre-book online in advance. Some venues also still have certain areas closed for safety reasons. Please check their website and/or social media pages before visiting.
