GoApe Myrtle Beach Treetop Adventure
One of the newest attractions on the Grand Strand is also one of the most exhilarating. GoApe is a treetop adventure located in North Myrtle Beach at the brand new North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex. It is the only outdoor treetop ropes course and zipline adventure in the area.
The course spans over 6 acres and has 5 unique stations that you complete during your adventure. Each station begins with a rope ladder that you must climb to reach the ropes course and obstacles that cross between the trees.
After reaching the top of the ladder you will be standing on a platform with your treetop obstacles between you and your only way back down to the ground, a zipline. Obstacles vary from stationary platforms, to swinging platforms, to rope walks and more. There are even two obstacles known as Tarzan swings where guests leap from a treetop platform and swing through the trees before hitting a net on the other side that they must climb to continue on to the next platform.
Once you have navigated your way through the various obstacles you reach your final platform with a zipline wire that leads you safely to mulch landing zone hundreds of feet away. If you complete all 5 stages you will have rode over 2,440 feet worth of ziplines, not to mention the climbing fun along the way.
The day begins with a safety briefing from a trained GoApe instructor. The instructor puts a safety harness on each participant and secures that in place. After everyone is suited up, you will receive thorough instruction on how to attach and detach from the secure lines that keep all participants safe while up in the trees. After some ground training the instructor takes the group to the first stage to show everyone the ropes and how to maneuver through the obstacles. Once you complete stage 1 you are free to complete the rest of the course alone.
