    • The General’s Gambit: George Washington Challenges Patrick Henry on Duty and Patriotism
      Most Americans (I suppose, perhaps too optimistically) can identify, “Give me liberty or give me death!” as the words of Patrick Henry. Leaving aside the question of whether those were his precise words delivered during the Second Virginia Convention in 1775, how many Americans know what Mr. Henry did after the Revolution? The answer is...Read More » […]

Go Ape’s Williamsburg Treetop Adventure Course opens to public on April 7, 2012

James City County Residents Will Receive a 10 Percent Discount –

imageGo Ape, a highly interactive treetop adventure course, swings into action with the grand opening of its newest location on April 7th at Freedom Park in Williamsburg, VA.  Go Ape offers Williamsburg area residents and visitors a unique outdoor experience that allows them to live life adventurously and experience the park like never before, from 40 feet up in the trees, hanging by a wire. 

The eco-educational outdoor experience will provide visitors with 2-3 hours of outdoor fun and exercise while they navigate more than 37 obstacles situated in the treetops of Freedom Park.  The course spans seven acres and features five ziplines, one of which is 600 feet long, two Tarzan swings, and a series of rope ladders, bridges, swings, and trapezes.

At Go Ape, participants are equipped with harnesses, pulleys and carabineers and receive a 30-minute training session before they are turned loose into the forest canopy.  Catering 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.

Founded in the U.K. in 2002, Go Ape has developed 30 courses and more than 2.7 million people have taken part in the experience.  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 visited the course to monkey around in the trees. Go Ape brings the same thrill and adventure to its second U.S. location in Williamsburg, VA.
