Forest adventure company Go Ape has launched a tree-top course at Coombe Abbey Country Park, near Coventry.

Creating 30 new jobs, the attraction offers thrill-seeking local people and visitors a new, fun-filled attraction to spend the day out.

Set in the park’s 500 acres of historic woodlands, the course features The Plummet, – a 12-metre free-fall vertical drop – a dual Tarzan Swing and a 200m double zip course finale.

Richard Harrison, Managing Director of Coombe Abbey Park Limited, who operates the hotel and cafes within the park and have partnered with Go Ape on this project, said of the investment:

“Go Ape is going to be a fantastic asset for Coventry and Warwickshire, and we are very proud that Coombe Abbey is working in partnership with the Go Ape team on this project."

Andrew Walster, Director of Streetscene and Regulatory Services at Coventry City Council, continued:

“The courses look fantastic and Coombe provides a wonderful backdrop. There will be great views of the lake and surrounding area form the tree tops and I hope more people will spend a whole day at the park – exploring all it has to offer.”
