SPRING 2019 marks an exciting new chapter for thrill-seekers in the region thanks to the launch of two fantastic new attractions.
From this weekend the much-anticipated new Go Ape becomes the fifth Midlands site to swing into action at Coombe Abbey in Coventry.
And we’re being invited to throw ourselves into this brand new adventure which will feature The Plummet – a 12-metre freefall vertical drop, a dual Tarzan Swing and a 200m double zip course finale.
Speaking ahead of the official open day, on Saturday (April 6th), Richard Harrison, Managing Director of Coombe Abbey Park Limited, said: “Go Ape is going to be a fantastic asset for the Coventry and Warwickshire region and we are very proud that Coombe Abbey is working in partnership with the Go Ape team on this project.
“We’re very excited to see the site opening and I hope to see many people enjoy the course and everything it has to offer over the coming months.”

If splashing is more your thing than flying, there’s not long to wait until the opening of the country’s newest £36.7m indoor waterpark – right on our doorstep.
A summer opening is anticipated for The Wave in Coventry – and news of the first two thrill-seeking rides were announced this week.
The Cascade is a fully enclosed slide that sweeps riders through large sections of coloured light. Suitable for all ages, youngsters are able to enjoy this slide with an accompanying adult.
The Crestar ride will shuttle you through two giant spheres with lighting effects – and other surprises – as sliders journey over 150 metres. If you enjoy getting super soaked, this one is for you!
The Wave is also looking for a team of tidal trailblazers to test both the slides, along with the other attractions soon to be announced, before the water park officially opens. Just sign up here
*** The winner of the Go Ape competition will receive a voucher for two adults and two children (over 10 and 1.4m tall) valid for 12 months.
