Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course

It’s not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a ‘tree top adventure’.That means we build giant obstacle courses up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire, and top it all off with the world's best zip lines.We then equip people with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!)The result is spectacular. The Go Ape experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all (no pun intended), it’s just great fun.

Took the family to celebrate my sons 14th birthday. We all did the main tree top obstacle course and zip lines. Our group of six ranged from 14 to 48. The course was challenging enough but still fun for everyone. The zip lines and Tarzan swings where the highlight of the day for our group. The instructors give you plenty of hands on training before turning you loose in the trees. The course could take a few hours depending on your abilities and those ahead of you! The park provides a great place to bring a picnic and make a day of it. There are walking trails and a pond at the state park. The park will charge an entrance fee to access go ape with in the park. Well worth the small fee.

Fort Delaware State Park

Reviewed By podrozniczka60 - New Jersey

This destination is not always easily reachable - but between Memorial Day and Labor day the ferries run both from Fort Mott in New Jersey and Delaware City in Delaware. The journey to the Pea Patch Island is pleasant in itself. From the ferry pier you will be transported by jitney to the Fort. Most tourists stop afterwards in Visitor Center and start self-guided tour. The Fort served as Civil War prison and because of that in October the place offers paranormal tours. There are nice picnic areas and you can meet actors in period attire. It is easy to spend and enjoy whole day here. For birdwatchers - herons, egrets, ibises. There is a rookery on the island.

Battery Park

Reviewed By gostartraveler - Forked River, New Jersey

Nice pier to view the water and Delaware Memorial Bridge. They have a playground (but this day was rainy, so couldn't give opinion on that.) Nice historical structure (former railroad ticket booth) with explainer, would be nice if it were open. Parking on street, seemed adequate for a Saturday morning.

Our family and friends have been going here for decades. The trails are well kept and it is a very large park. There is a pavilion where the Park sponsors entertainment/ music. There are rocks to climb and a couple of ponds. You can ride bikes and there are maps available online at its website..

Fort Mott State Park

Reviewed By podrozniczka60 - New Jersey

Fort Mott is a nice destination for the whole family. The Visitor Center was for some reason closed on this August weekend and website mistakenly stated the ferry was done for the season but local staff explained these are just mistakes of the central management in Trenton. Self-guided tour is recommended as it gets you to explore all the important elements of the history of this fort . There is nice picnic area available. Ferry to Pea Patch Island and Fort Delaware is a major attraction and it makes it for a very nice combined trip.

Lums Pond State Park

Reviewed By kari327055 - Keller, Texas

I need to preface this review that I'm in the middle of a 30 day multi state camping trip. Booked the yurt months ago based on reviews. Expected something similar to a camper cabin. As I was spending the day in Philadelphia I called to see what needed to be done as would be arriving late. Guy on phone was nice. Gave me code to open the door and if I had any problems see camp host in site 1 or 2. Upon arriving to park around 8p had little issue finding the yurt in the dark. At night can't really see the post with Y1 on it as 2 other poles in the way. No "path/trail" to deck. There was one for yurt 02. I was unable to get the door code to work so went to see camp host on right side. He told me to do door code and then hit #, but be careful that door automatically lockes when door shuts. Went back. Still unable to get door to work. Digital lock very worn and weathered. Again went to host who then makes snide comment "1st time in 3 years someone couldn't get door open". He use code and then turn and pulled hard on door to get it to open. After my friend and I said apologized and said thank you. He makes another snide comment about topping of his already 10 hour day. Once inside I was completely grossed out. Was dirty/nasty. Didn't even shut the door. Bugs crawling all over beds, walls, floors. 1 fell on me from ceiling. No broom to sweep them out. With mattress covers dirty and ripped who knows what was in the matress itself. I would have rather set up my tent in the dark. So grossed out I bugged out. Upon leave door did NOT autonatically lock. Kinda pissed. Waste of my money and too late as after 9p to find another campground. Had to get hotel.

Glasgow Park

Reviewed By Motherhen03 - Fairfax, Virginia

This is a wonderful family- friendly park. Lots of walking trails, lots of open space, nice playground equipment. Lots of people there on Easter Sunday. So nice to see Delaware utilize open space for people to enjoy. Good amount of parking. First and Third Saturdays the history museum is open at this site too. Way to go Delaware for protecting nature and providing a great place to visit.

Cozy Quarters Farm

Our farm offers a fun horseback riding experience. We are all friendly including our four legged friends! We have trail riding, horseback riding lessons, horse boarding, horse leasing, and we offer pony parties. Our ponies come to your party bedazzled and ready to impress!

Reviewed By daisyferret1 - Delaware

Our children were guests at a "Pony Party". Cozy Quarters Farm were the ones hired by the host to supply the pony ride experience for the birthday party. Ponies were brought right to the birthday girl's very own backyard! Setup was FAST, friendly and very professional.

Our children had a blast riding the ponies. The staff, which were a family of 3, seemed really friendly. They seemed to be good with BOTH the ponies and the kids. They helped get the kids on/off the ponies and also helped them feed the ponies a treat during the party. The ponies were decorated with rainbows and their manes/tails were dyed colors to match. The kids thought this was great. The ponies were clean, well mannered and great with the toddlers. Staff made sure to keep the ponies separated when the pony rides were going on, which was a great safety feature.

At the end of the party, the staff removed the roping they had put up to section off the pony rides and cleaned up. No mess was left behind.

Overall, our kids had a blast at the pony party. I am almost positive we are going to be begged to host a pony party for our own kids next birthday, which is something we will definitely consider.

Live this mall, stopped at Cabelas first then into mall. They have the majority of the stores we like and if not its a short drive from there. Food court is also good and its surrounded by other food choices also.
