Do something different this season in Houston. While we love the bars, restaurants, and go-to date-night spots in the city, it’s fun to mix it up every now and then. Add a little adventure to your life at Go Ape in Sugar Land, an adventure park home to outdoor forest escape ‘rooms’, axe-throwing bays, and the longest zipline in the Houston area.
Go Ape is a Zipline & Adventure Park originally founded in Maryland. Now with a location in Sugar Land at 18427 Southwest Freeway in Brazos River Park, the park is known for its treetop adventures, obstacle courses, and action-packed fun in an forest setting.
Its Treetop Adventures is a self-guided tour that consists of lengthy ziplines, tree-to-tree canvasing, and ‘heart-stopping Tarzan swings’ across the span of 2 – 3 hours. Employees will provide a 30-minute safety briefing beforehand. Prices for this activity range from $44.95 – $64.95 per person.
The park also features what they call Treetop Journeys. Here, visitors of all ages and abilities can traverse high-flying obstacles, suspended bridges, and glide across ziplines 20 feet above the ground over the course of an hour. Prices range from $32.95-$39.95 per person.
Visitors can also take a swing at axe-throwing, in which the park features outdoor axe-throwing bays for patrons to compete against their friends.
Lastly, the park features a unique Forest Escape, in which visitors must engage their problem solving skills in a uniquely immersive natural environment. Priced at $19.95 per person.
Go Ape does not offer food or drinks on site, but does allow patrons to bring their own. Alcohol excluded.
For a limited time in October, the park features Frights at Height, a scream-themed treetop experience where visitors can zip, climb, and swing in the company of lurking goblins, ghouls, and zombies for a one-hour, after-dark experience.
Go Ape is located at 18427 Southwest Freeway. It is open from 9 am to 4 pm Thursdays through Mondays. Closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
