An exciting tree-top tourist attraction at Coombe Abbey has been put through its paces before it is officially opened to the public.

Special guests were welcomed to Go Ape to see what was on offer and have a go themselves.

Located within the park, the attraction will feature The Plummet, a 12-metre free-fall vertical drop, a dual Tarzan Swing and a 200m double zip course finale.

Richard Harrison, Managing Director of Coombe Abbey Park Limited, which operates the hotel and cafes within the park and has partnered with Go Ape on this project, is thrilled that it will soon be open.

“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,” he said.

“I hope to see as many people enjoy the course and everything it has to offer once it opens and over the coming months.”

Andrew Walster, Director Streetscene and Regulatory Services at Coventry City Council, said: “Coombe Park has a special place in the hearts of local people – and now it has an attraction to get hearts pumping too.

“The courses look fantastic and Coombe provides a wonderful backdrop. There will be great views of the lake and surrounding area form the tree tops and I hope more people will spend a whole day at the park – exploring all it has to offer.”

Go Ape at Coombe Abbey will be open between 10am and 4pm Monday to Sunday. For further information about Go Ape visit https://goape.co.uk/days-out/midlands/coventry
