FREDERICK, Md., April 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Go Ape, the nation's premier Treetop Adventure course company, today announced its latest experience: Go Ape Treetop Couch. In a video being released on Friday, April 1, 2016, Go Ape will demonstrate their new virtual reality product, which takes advantage of custom-made 4D technology.
Since 2010, Go Ape has been revolutionizing outdoor adventure with its treetop obstacle courses. Recent market research, however, indicates that a growing number of Americans want adventure, but don't want to leave their couch. A 2013 CDC study found that a whopping 80 percent of American adults don't get the recommended amount of exercise each week. Go Ape hopes its Treetop Couch experience will make people feel better about staying sedentary.
"We've taken our award winning 2-3 hour treetop courses—the obstacles, crossings, Tarzan swings and zip lines—and transformed them into a comprehensive 4D virtual experience," said Dan D'Agostino, Go Ape Managing Director. "This is the future of outdoor adventure."
Go Ape Treetop Couch will come pre-packaged with its custom made 4D goggles, equipped with pine-scented air fresheners and a fan to recreate the feeling of the air rushing by as you ride a zip line or swing through the trees on a rope.
"We are thrilled to be the first outdoor company ever to bring the outdoors indoors," added D'Agostino. "You don't even have to leave your couch."
Go Ape Tree Top Couch will be available in May 2016. 4D Goggles will be available for purchase at www.goape.com/treetop-couch.
About Go Ape
Go Ape's mission is to encourage everyone to live life adventurously while treading lightly in the most beautiful places and spaces in the US. A Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course is an outdoor experience that provides participants 2-3 hours of outdoor fun and exercise. Courses allow participants to explore the park from an otherwise unobtainable vantage point while navigating through the treetops using zip lines, obstacles and Tarzan swings. A love of the outdoors and our desire to share that passion demands that we take care of our little corner of the forest. From donating our time and resources to local community and environmental groups to providing a unique view from the treetops, we strive to be socially and environmentally responsible. All of Go Ape's U.S. courses are located in public parks and giving back to the parks and community is a significant aspect of our values.
