Kids go Free at "Go Ape"

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – If your kids are itching to get outside and try something new, there’s a free option on Monday, June 27th. 

Go Ape, a zip line and treetop adventure course in North Myrtle Beach, is offering kids 15 and under the chance to hit the ropes at no charge.  WMBF talked with Jenn Weiland from Go Ape in this week’s Fit Family Friday segment.  She explained the reason behind the offer, which would normally cost $28 to $38. “We just really want to see families get out there and get their kids active and away from the TV, electronics,” said Weiland.

The courses range, depending on height, and for younger kids parents are required.  The junior course, for those 3’3” and under takes about an hour to complete.  Weiland says they take extra safety measures for the little ones, “For the junior course once we attach them they are always attached until they come back down.”

The treetop adventure course for those at least 4’7” can take 2-3 hours and is definitely a physical workout. 

Anyone taking part in any of the courses gets a 30 minute safety briefing before heading up.   Parents can watch from below, or head up in the trees.

 “We encourage everyone to get up there,” said Weiland.  Expect to navigate through the treetops using zip lines, obstacles, and Tarzan swings. 

Reservations for Kids Go Free Day are highly recommended.  You can get them at Go Ape.
