Northwest of Southampton, close to Eastleigh, you can find us in the heart of Itchen Valley Country Park. Our Hampshire location plays host to two of our high ropes experiences plus axe throwing. We're just off Allington Lane - close to Southampton airport. Whether you're looking for things to do nearby with the kids or a day out with friends we have adventure covered. Treetop Adventure is a one-hour experience aimed at kids and young families. Treetop Challenge is for those over 1.4 metres tall and is 2-3 hours of high wire obstacles, Tarzan Swings and ziplines. Go Ape Southampton also boasts Axe Throwing - a gripping new experience. If you're looking for action packed fun on the south coast, we're one of the best attractions around.

Treetop Adventure
An action-packed one-hour introduction to high ropes life. Go Ape Treetop Adventure is a jam-packed experience of intricate crossings, wobbly bridges and a zip wire finale - guaranteed to evoke screams and laughter. It is a safe and controlled high ropes experience that uses a continuous belay system, meaning participants are always attached to the course. For those over a metre tall.

Treetop Challenge
An exhilarating self-guided 2-3 hour experience through the forest canopy. After a detailed safety brief from one of our qualified instructors you’ll be tackling tricky crossings, climbing up rope ladders and riding high-speed ziplines. Designed for young couples, friends and families with kids over the age of 10 - we're one of Hampshire’s best outdoor activities. Grown-up fun in the great outdoors.

Axe Throwing
Every tried slinging an axe? Not only is it the perfect stress-reliever but it's bags of fun too. Enjoy an action-packed hour of axe-flinging in the great outdoors, as you go in search for that all-important bullseye (it's harder than it sounds). Our qualified instructors will be on-hand to provide tips and support. A gripping NEW experience you’ll want to do again. And again. And again.
