On the first day of spring, Memphians will have the opportunity to swing from the trees — literally.
Go Ape, the city's first treetop adventure course, will open March 21st at Shelby Farms Park. The course has six zip lines, two Tarzan-style swings, ropes, ladders, bridges, and trapezes. The 42 obstacles included in the course are set up 40 feet up in the forest canopy. The course takes two to three hours to complete.
Go Ape's Shelby Farms location will be its eighth in the country since it launched in 2010. It's the first Go Ape location in Tennessee.
“Go Ape is an exciting addition to Shelby Farms Park and a perfect compliment to the current and planned recreational amenities in the park” said Shelby Farms Park Conservancy’s Executive Director, Laura Morris. “Our vision is to give rise to a celebrated 21st century park, and through this partnership with Go Ape we are taking fun to new heights.”
