This week marks the beginning of spring, so why not make the most of the warmer weather with an outdoor treetop adventure.

A new Go Ape assault course is opening at Alexandra Park, in Alexandra Palace this week.

The historical park, located between Muswell Hill and Wood Green, is one of the most iconic parks in London.

Best known for hosting a mixture of live events including music, sport and leisure, it is now home to a tree top junior zip wire course that is aimed at children.

Later in the summer, a course aimed at people of all ages will also be opened.

Children who are at least one metre tall can explore the forest canopy and negotiate a range of ladders, tree tip walkways, bridges and tunnels.

Those feeling slightly more adventurous can also test their nerve on the 43 metre zip wire at the end of the course.

Go Ape has outlets in 31 different parks and forests all over the country and the company prides itself on promoting “living life adventurously, having fun with friends and family and exploring the great outdoors”.

Safety is also the main priority. Before each adventure begins, instructors run each group through all the safety instructions, before making them chant the Go Ape mantra to “always stay attached”.

This ensures every participant always stays clipped onto the wires around the tree trunk to prevent falling and being injured.

The course usually take around three hours to complete and everyone receives a certificate at the end of their day that says they are now part of the Go Ape tribe.
