It's a bird! It's a plane! It's GO APE! We literally hung from the treetops at GO APE in Williamsburg a few days ago. Of course it was under the instruction of an excellent guide, but we were up there.
It sure does bring out your inner monkey, going platform to platform. Likewise it also stirs up any latent fear of heights deep within your psyche! It's quite a rollicking adventure course. There's an adult route and a brand-new one for kids ages 5 and up. We all did the kid one, which was amazing.
Man, if that's for ages 5 and up, I can't imagine what the adult course is like! Needless to say it was a blast...
Much to my surprise, it was quite a workout, using some muscles to balance that I never knew existed. (Had never tried to walk on a tightrope before then. Now check that one off the bucket list!)
Finally the course ends with a flourish -- a fun ride down from the trees on a very zippy zip line -- woo weee!
Man, all that exercise sure makes you hungry! Banana, anyone?
