Extreme fun fans will no longer have to trek to Zone 5 and beyond for any birthdays, team outings or awkward dates that involve swinging from trees. Go Ape (the popular aerial assault courses that can be found in woods and forests across the country) is opening its first urban site in Battersea Park next month.
They're going big for their twenty-ninth site, too: along with the usual zip wires, rope ladders, tunnels and gigantic rope nets, Go Ape Battersea will have crossings double the height and twice the length of other courses. That's at least 12 metres high at certain points, which if you think about it, could be pretty nauseating if dizzying heights aren't your thing. Mind you, the course is safe enough for kids aged six and up and you'll be strapped up in a harness – so you might want to have some serious words with your inner Tarzan or Jane to get involved or expect someone's child to put you to shame.
Go Ape Battersea Park opens on Thursday December 10.
