Go Ape Offers Fall Festivities at South Run Rec Center

Zip Line AutumnGo Ape Zipline & Adventure Park, a Fairfax County Park Authority business partner, located at the South Run Rec Center, is celebrating the change in seasons with a variety of fun, fall festivities throughout September and October.

The highlight of the autumn festival will be the brand-new Frights at Height horror-filled experience. On select evenings in October, guests will find zombies, ghosts and ghouls hiding in dark corners of the Treetop Journey zipline and ropes course. This activity is not for the faint of heart. It’s open to everyone, but highly recommended only for those prepared to be scared. This will be an adventurous way to celebrate Halloween. These sessions are limited, so reservations are strongly encouraged. Register at the Go Ape website. The cost is $39.95 per person for this one-hour, gravity defying, scream-filled adventure after dark.

Not ready to unleash the terror inside? Don’t worry, Go Ape is open before the sun goes down as well. Guests will find a Halloween-themed adventure during daylight hours. To get into the spirit of the season guests can enjoy the Treetop Adventure, Treetop Journey and Monkey Drop activities. Go Ape will have candy, cobwebs, pumpkins and fun festivities all throughout the fall, whether you visit while the sun is in the sky or once the ghouls come out after sunset.

While Frights at Height doesn’t begin until Oct. 7, 2022, Go Ape has already started the autumn celebration. September is Appreciation Month at Go Ape, and all teachers, students, health care workers, first responders, military vets and their guests can get 10% off their entire reservation by using code SEPT10 when booking. Simply use the code to book and visit by Sept. 30, 2022, and then show your ID when checking in at the Go Ape cabin.

South Run Rec Center is located at 7550 Reservation Drive, Springfield, Virginia. For more information, visit the South Run Rec Center website; or call 703-866-0566.
