Bring your junior explorer along to the zoo for a BIG adventure on our adventure course!

Add even more excitement to your day at the zoo by bringing your little ones along to Treetop Challenge, the UK’s biggest course of its type! Get them strapped into a harness and guide them around the many fun obstacles along the course.

This course will have them monkeying around as they leap, balance, climb and laugh their way round. It’s also the first course in the UK to include TWO mini zip lines, so you can watch your little ones whizzzz along!

If you want to book your child a ticket for the Treetop Challenge, you can purchase them at the same time as buying your admissions tickets online. You can also purchase them on the day – just pop along to the Treetop Challenge kiosk, located opposite the entrance to the wooden bridge by Fruit Bat Forest.Young boy on Treetop Challenge at Chester Zoo
