It costs £18 for the Tree Top Junior course for all ages (over one metre tall).

Cllr Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for Community Wellbeing, said:
“It is an exciting time for Normanby Hall as it gets ready to open the region’s first Go Ape. It’s a real feat to have Go Ape, an international business, open in North Lincolnshire. It shows the confidence businesses have in our area as a place to invest.
“Normanby Hall is the perfect location for a day out with family and friends. And Go Ape is a great addition to what is already on offer and will attract thousands of new visitors from across the region – on top of over 306,000 we had last year.
“We are planning on making further developments to the overall experience at Normanby Hall and putting on more activities families. Keep an eye out for a full calendar of events at Normanby Hall and new activities.”
Nick Ruffles, Normanby Hall Go Ape Site Manager, said:
“We are delighted to be bringing Go Ape Tree Top Adventure & Tree Top Junior to Normanby Hall. The course is set in the beautiful country park and you get a stunning view from the tree tops! We want to create adventures and encourage people to live life adventurously. We hope that many people will conquer their fear of heights at Go Ape and be inspired to try other adventures and challenges.”
Go Ape is hidden within the beautiful Beech Wood at Normanby Hall, adjacent to the Deer Park nestled towards the end of the woodland at Normanby Hall.
