ABOUT GO APE USA (www.goape.com)

Go Ape is a highly interactive treetop adventure where participants are equipped with harnesses, pulleys and carabineers and receive a 30-minute training session before they are turned loose into the forest canopy.  The courses feature a series of zip lines, Tarzan swings, rope ladders, bridges, swings, and trapezes.  Catering to all skill levels, participants are encouraged to live life adventurously, push themselves, and turn “I can’t” into “I can.”  To join the tribe, follow @GoApeUSA or visit the YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/goapeusa.


Editor’s Note: Media representatives are invited to take a complimentary swing through the Go Ape course during the 2013 season.  All participants must receive a 30 minute training session, prior to starting the course. To book your complementary visit, please contact Carolyn Tunney at 443-365-0554.
