Ever wanted to experience a 'barrel roll' or 'loop the loop' in an aircraft? Get ready to see the world from a different angle. Experience the thrills of aerobatic manoeuvres which may include loops (the world becomes all green then blue and then all green again), rolls, stall turns, chandelles and steep turns.
Your instructor will start the experience with a pre-flight briefing enabling you to understand how the aircraft is capable of aerobatic flight. Once in the air your instructor will accelerate the aircraft to over 100mph before starting a sequence of aerobatic manoeuvres which may include loops, rolls, wingovers and even the dreaded spin. All this takes place several thousand feet in the air. Due to the nature of this experience you will not be able to take the controls so just sit back and enjoy.

'Arrrh-a-arrrh-a-arrrhhhh! This is Go Ape, the multi-award winning Tree Top forest adventure. Head to one of the 28 UK forest adventures for two to three hours in the trees, taking on Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings, Rope Ladders and a variety of High-Wire Crossings, all set in the UK's most beautiful woodlands. At Go Ape you'll be kitted out with harnesses, pulleys and Karabiners, provided with a detailed safety brief with training and then let loose into the forest canopy to roam FREE. Life is so much more fun when you're jumping off a tree top platform into a cargo net. Before you head up onto the course, you'll be given a half-hour safety briefing by one of the qualified instructors. Here, you'll learn and try out the obstacles at low levels, and get to grips with the equipment. It's not complicated, but it's important stuff and it will give you the confidence to enjoy your time in the trees. After your training they won't supervise you. You'll be responsible for yourself but of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!)
