Go Ape to Add Treetop Junior Course in North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex
Junior course set to open will full course this spring

North Myrtle Beach, S.C. (Feb 17, 2016)—Go Ape, the nation’s premier Treetop Adventure company, is pleased to announce the addition of a Treetop Junior course to its already popular course at the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex in North Myrtle Beach, S.C. Expected to open this spring when the adult course opens, younger residents and tourists of all ages will have the chance to climb rope ladders, swing from the trees, and zoom down zip lines, just like their older family members. This is the Maryland-based company’s second Treetop Junior course across the country, making it a unique attraction for North Myrtle Beach.

The main course is set to open March 5, 2016 and the new Junior Treetop course, March 19th. The new Junior Treetop Adventure will cost $28, and reservations are recommended through

Go Ape’s Treetop Junior course is a fun filled experience of tree-to-tree crossings, obstacles, and 2 zip lines at heights of 20 feet above the ground! Designed for adventurers age 6-12 years old (but anyone who is 3’3” or taller may participate), the safety systems are designed so that participants stay attached the whole time they are in the trees. Participants only become unattached when back on the ground. Children under six must be accompanied on the course by an adult, while children 6 – 15 must be supervised by an adult either from on the course or from the ground.

“Opening a course in North Myrtle Beach just for younger children is thrilling because it supports our mission to help everyone life adventurously.” says Go Ape Managing Director Dan D’Agostino. “Parents will get an immense amount of satisfaction from seeing their kids enjoying the park from the trees, but also seeing their sense of accomplishment as they work through the course’s obstacles.”

All of Go Ape’s courses are designed to minimize any impact on the trees and the environment. Go Ape courses use clever braces that grip trunks and the platforms rest on these. The system allows the brace to expand as the tree grows. All trees are inspected annually by independent arborists to ensure their continued health.

About Go Ape
Go Ape’s mission is to encourage everyone to live life adventurously while treading lightly in the most beautiful places and spaces in the US. A Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course is an outdoor experience that provides participants 2-3 hours of outdoor fun and exercise. Courses allow participants to explore the park from an otherwise unobtainable vantage point while navigating through the treetops using zip lines, obstacles and Tarzan swings. A love of the outdoors and our desire to share that passion demands that we take care of our little corner of the forest. From donating our time and resources to local community and environmental groups to providing a unique view from the treetops, we strive to be socially and environmentally responsible. All of Go Ape’s U.S. courses are located in public parks and giving back to the parks and community is a significant aspect of our values.
