Going Ape in New Britain!
New Britain and Hartford Residents Excited to Monkey
Go Ape A. W. Stanley Park Opens April 2
New Britain, Conn. (March 16, 2016)—Residents and visitors to the New Britain and Hartford region will get back to monkeying around when Go Ape, the nation’s premier Treetop Adventure company, opens its Treetop Adventure Course in A. W. Stanley Park on April 2, 2016 for its second season.
Go Ape Treetop Adventure Courses inject fun and exhilaration into everyday life by giving guests the unique opportunity to experience the park from an otherwise unobtainable vantage point. The course provides two to three hours of challenge and fun for anyone who wants some excitement but doesn’t want to travel far to get it.
Just a minutes from both downtown New Britain and Hartford, the course features include:
· 5 zip lines for a total of 3,237 feet of exhilaration!
· The longest zip line in Connecticut at 900 feet
· 2 Tarzan swings, a series of rope ladders, bridges, spider’s webs and trapezes
· 40 obstacles situated 40 feet up in the forest canopy
“Seeing A. W. Stanley from 40 feet in the air is truly amazing,” says Go Ape Managing Director Dan D’Agostino. “And while that might sound intimidating, pushing yourself outside your usual comfort zone just to see the views of the park is extremely rewarding.”
Developed through a partnership with the City of New Britain Parks and Recreation, the course is designed to allow for a wide variety of skill levels, offering a balanced mixture of challenge and fun.
As part of the partnership Go Ape Treetop Adventure courses support the park and local communities in which they are based by taking part in park cleanups, non-native invasive plant removal, and by donating free and discounted tickets to underserved and special needs groups. Last year, Go Ape donated more than $1.1 million in free and reduced-price tickets to local community groups.
Reservations are recommended through www.goape.com.
