Anyone ever tell you to go climb a tree? What used to be dismissive put-down is now a pretty good suggestion for having high-flying fun in North Myrtle Beach.
The Go Ape Zip Line & Treetop Adventure attraction lets patrons play Tarzan for a day on a ropes course and series of zip lines in the forest canopy of the North Myrtle Beach Sports and Recreation Complex. It's the latest extreme sport on the Grand Strand and has grown adults gleefully climbing and playing in trees for the first time in years.
Go Ape Zip Line gives thrill-seekers a new and fun outlet for kids' play in a natural setting. Patrons can escape the neon lights and crowds with an exciting day of zip lines, 2 of which go across a 25 acre lake, and working their way through an obstacle course of zigzag bridges, ropes and ladders high in the trees. It's a little bit of work but a whole lot of fun!
Go Ape Zip Line is located at 150 Citizens Circle in Little River, just off Highway 31 on Robert Edge Parkway. The cost for zip lining is $55 for adults and as low as $35 for children 17-and under, who must be at least 4-foot-7 and accompanied by an adult. For more information or to book reservations, call 843-280-3800 or visit the website at www.goape.com.
When you’re done with your Go Ape Zip Line & Treetop Adventure, you should mosey on over into the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex. Be sure to check out their playgrounds, picnic shelters, various activities at the amphitheater, watersports on the 25 acre lake, walk along one of three trails, or toss a Frisbee in the 10 acre meadow.
