Lincolnshire’s first Go Ape adventure park to open next Easter

The county’s first Go Ape adventure park is on track to open in time for the Easter holidays next year.

Visitors to Normanby Hall Country Park can already see the construction of the tree top adventure course with many of the obstacles already visible in the trees.

Go Ape at Normanby Hall will have a ‘Tree Top Adventure’ and three loop ‘Tree Top Juniors’.

Activities will include:

  • Amazon Bridge
  • Grandpa’s crossing
  • Tibetan bridge
  • Tarzan Swing
  • Five zip lines

Those taking on the ‘Tree Top Adventure’ course will have the choice of 29 crossings and will brave the highest point of 7.22 metres.

For the younger adventurers, they will have the choice of 17 crossings on the Tree Top Junior course and will go up to 5.25 metres (highest point).

Go Ape at Normanby Hall Country Park is expected to create 26 jobs.

Councillor Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for community wellbeing, said: “It is brilliant to see progress being made on Go Ape at Normanby Hall Country Park.

“Go Ape is a top tourist attraction that will attract thousands of visitors to North Lincolnshire. It is a major investment that will help put North Lincolnshire on the map as a place to visit.

“Normanby Hall is set in beautiful surroundings and provides the perfect location for the tree top adventure courses. It is the perfect addition to what is already on offer at Normanby Hall Country Park. It will be a fantastic day out for all the family.

“We are set to invest £1 million in Normanby Hall Country Park to improve the overall experience including putting on open air concerts, improving the café and putting on more activities for families.

“We are also looking to secure other partners to bring even more to this top tourist attraction.”
