New Go Ape Location to Open in Partnership with Arlington Parks and Rec


City of Arlington Parks and Recreation in Arlington, Texas, has partnered with Go Ape to open a new aerial adventure attraction in River Legacy Park East. The attraction will debut March 3 with two high-ropes courses, each including multiple zip lines, and axe throwing. It will be Go Ape’s fifteenth location in the United States.

“Partnering with Go Ape is an exciting opportunity to provide a thrilling outdoor experience for Arlington residents and visitors alike and gives us the chance to showcase our parks system from a new vantage point,” said parks and recreation director James Orloski. 

The high-ropes courses will each provide a different level of challenge. The Treetop Adventure will be a three-hour experience with more than 60 aerial crossings and obstacles up to 40 feet in the air, a Tarzan swing, and five zip lines up to 600 feet long—including some that cross over the Trinity River. Climbers must be at least 53 inches tall to participate.

The Treetop Journey course will be a one-hour experience with 30 obstacles and two zip lines reaching 130 feet in length. It reaches a height of 20 feet off the ground and guests must be a minimum of 39 inches tall to participate.

The adventure park will also include an outdoor axe throwing range with four targets and five different games for participants to choose from. 

“These activities will be open to participants of all ages and skill levels. Our instructors will provide a tree-mendous experience for all guests, giving them a unique and fun adventure,” said Go Ape chief executive officer Vernon West.
