Description: Come zip through the treetops in Pittsburgh's own North Park, the largest and one of the most scenic of Allegheny County's nine parks, with Go Ape! Adventures. Go Ape! North Park is set within a gorgeous pine forest, overlooking the park's 63-acre lake. More than just a canopy tour, the course is made up of numerous rope ladders, 41 exciting crossings, two Tarzan swings, and five zip lines. Overall, there are five individual sections within the course, each section taking you higher into the forest canopy and finishing with a zip line more exciting than the previous one!
You'll be equipped with harnesses, pulleys, and carabiners, given a 30-minute safety training, and then let loose into the forest canopy, free to swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand. The course takes about 2-3 hours to complete.
