The Sundown Sessions, perfect for thrill seekers, take place at the Thetford Forest course throughout half term week from October 25 to October 31.

The extraordinary after-hours experience could be an ideal socially distanced outing for the autumn half term and an alternative activity for all the family as traditional Halloween celebrations are expected to be curtailed by coronavirus and current restrictions.

The nightfall sessions begin from 4.45pm and run into the evening to ensure you really are clambering amongst the trees in the dark.

With no sunlight to guide you, participants will be expected to work their way around the tree top course before plummeting through the night on Go Ape's infamous zip wires.

The activity is suitable for all ages - children and teenagers through to adults - and ticket prices are from £22 per person for an after-dark session.

Rob Medlicott, from Go Ape, said: “The new Sundown Sessions offer something completely different for people looking to switch up their autumnal evenings with an unforgettable adventure that’ll stay with them long after the experience ends.

"Go Ape is challenging at the best of times, and extra challenging in the dark, but when you complete it the feeling is immense.”

With only a limited number of evening sessions available, intrepid adventurers are encouraged to book ahead and secure a space. Visit www.goape.co.uk/sundown for more information.
