Play Tarzan on five ziplines, two swings, and a series of rope ladders, bridges, and trapezes @ Freedom Park in Williamsburg

As previously reported in Jan 2012 , Go Ape, a treetop adventure company, is breaking ground on its second U.S. location.  The new course will be located at Freedom Park in Williamsburg, VA, a convenient location for the area’s millions of tourists. Course Swings into Action in May 2012, Features a 600 Ft. Long Zipline —

As previously reported in Jan 2012 , Go Ape, a treetop adventure company, is breaking ground on its second U.S. location.  The new course will be located at Freedom Park in Williamsburg, VA, a convenient location for the area’s millions of tourists.

Go Ape launched its first U.S. course in May 2010 in Rock Creek Regional Park in Rockville, MD.  Since then, more than 30,000 people have monkeyed around in the trees. 

The eco-educational outdoor experience will provide visitors with 2-3 hours of outdoor fun and exercise while they navigate through the treetops.  The course will span seven acres and feature five ziplines, two Tarzan swings, and a series of rope ladders, bridges, swings, and trapezes, all situated in the treetops of Freedom Park.  In addition, Go Ape is excited to reveal new obstacles that will be the first-of-their-kind in the U.S., including a 600 foot long zipline.

imageCatering to all skill levels, Go Ape is ideal for friend and family outings, corporate team building, birthday parties, date nights, bachelor/bachelorette parties, school groups, scout events, and church groups – basically anyone who is looking for a fun and exciting activity that gets them into nature.

“Given the great success of our first course, we are thrilled to have been awarded the opportunity to expand Go Ape’s U.S. presence with the new site.  We are thankful to all of our supporters for helping to make this happen and are excited to offer a second location that will provide Virginia residents and area visitors with a unique opportunity to live life adventurously,” commented Dan D’Agostino, managing director of Go Ape USA.  “Williamsburg is an ideal location for us and we are happy to provide a family-friendly and healthy activity for residents of the community and tourists.”

D’Agostino anticipates hiring 12 employees at the Williamsburg location.

imageIn addition to attracting families, Go Ape courses are popular groups from corporations, churches and universities.  “We cater to a lot of different team building groups,” says D’Agostino.

“Tourism is a huge business in Williamsburg and family-friendly outdoor adventure activities are in high demand.  There is nothing like Go Ape in the area and we anticipate a lot of interest in the course,” commented John Carnifax, James City County Parks and Recreation Director.  “Go Ape is a great way to attract more visitors to Freedom Park and James City County and to help generate revenue during these tough economic times.”

Go Ape hopes to add courses throughout the U.S. Go Ape began in the United Kingdom in 2002 and has 28 courses around the world.
