“At a knee-knocking 1,200ft, Tree Top Adventure at Buxton is one of the highest Go Ape courses in the UK. Steadily ascending through the canopy, you'll climb, clamber and conquer this goliath of a high ropes course in 2-3 hours. Built high in the hilltops of the UK's largest National Park, our Peak District location is BIG on adventure. Get your heart-pumping with one of our biggest Tarzan swing drops. You'll leap off the platform into stomach-turning freefall before being swung into our giant cargo net (psst, we have alternative obstacles for budding adventurers)”
