They just opened a Go Ape franchise at Freedom Park in Williamsburg about a month ago. Took the boys there today and we had a blast! 6 zip-lines, the last one is about 600 feet, and 6 stations of treetop challenges. Highly recommended!
Disregard, can't get the photobucket embed video to work.
I'm guessing this is some kind of amusement area, as I've never heard the name before.
It's actually in the Williamsburg Botanical Gardens. This has been around in England for years, but three franchises just opened in the U.S., one up in Maryland, on in Indianapolis, and the one in Williamsburg. The website for Williamsburg is here: http://goape.com/sites/freedom-park
Here are the stats:
Number of sections
Longest Zip Wire 600 feet
Longest Crossing 54 feet
Total Length 2,099 feet
Number of Crossings 37
Highest Point 40 feet
If you have a fear of heights, this would be one way to confront them . I admit I was sore the next morning, there is a lot of climbing, and some of the crossing challenges are pretty hard. On the "extreme" challenges, they offer a second crossing path that is a bit easier to negotiate. My 11 year old did the second "extreme" challenge, which contains a big "tarzan swing". He skipped the first one because it involved more lower body strength then he could muster. Right now they are only open weekends, but they will be open 7 days a week as soon as the schools close for the summer.
If you google "go ape williamsburg" there are more pics and videos available to clarify what the course provides.
