Go Ape--a Tree-to-Tree Outdoor Adventure

First of all, kudos to the team that greets you and gets you settled into your safety harness--and by 'settled' I'm being gracious. They strap you in pretty snugly. Then our guide, Julie, walked us through the procedure of connecting the shuttle and carabiner to the safety cables, a step done repeatedly throughout the course.
Go Ape is situated in the Oak Point Nature Preserve in Plano, about a 45 minute drive from Flower Mound or Southlake. Plan to spend about $50 per person, which might sound a bit steep, but we spent three hours from start to finish, so the fee seemed reasonable. Make sure after you finish to return to the trailer for your certificate of completion. Then, if you return, you can submit it for a free T-shirt or water bottle.
Reservations are made online ahead of time and our group consisted of a family of five, a pair of women, and then us. Go Ape does a good job of pacing participants so you don't feel crowded. We are already planning our return adventure. Let us know if you make the trek and what you think!
