Description:

Voted Best Tourism Experience at Lancashire and Blackpool Tourism Awards...

Voted Best Tourism Experience at Lancashire and Blackpool Tourism Awards 2011 and nominated in the Visit Lancashire for Small Visitor Attraction in 2014. It's got to be one of Lancashire's best days out and that's not just us saying that (check out our feedback!). With breathtaking scenery, amazing tree top obstacles and awesome zip lines, Rivington is sure to be a day out in Lancashire you won't forget. You are guaranteed a warm welcome at Rivington Tree Top Adventure. It's home to one of the most exciting zip wires: You'll cross a bay in the reservoir and get a bird's eye view over the water. With its rugged hills, picturesque reservoirs and woodlands bustling with wildlife, Rivington is one of Lancashire's 'must visit' locations. A gem in its own right and on the doorstep of Manchester, one of the most vibrant cities in the UK.

Went with my nephew. The instructions were very clear and safe. We were not rushed around the course and going through the trees was thrilling, particularly the big zip line at the end.

This was pretty decent. My girlfriend and I decided to do something different for a bit of entertainment and It certainly fulfilled our expectations. This only lasted an hour or so and I personally wish things got a little bit higher and faster but I strongly recommend this for children that are seeking a bit of an adventure. Or adults... More

We have been there twice as its truly thrilling. Once at a birthday and once because it was so good last time. Not for the faint harted though as they leave you in your own safety clipping your self in. The use of natural trees is refreshing aswell. The course for us took about an hour to an hour and...

Went to Go Ape, Rivington on 19/2/17 with my sister who was going as a sort of fear-conquering experience. I went for fun as I wasn't really that scared of heights... or at least I didn't think I was... It was a fantastic experience - the booking staff on the telephone were really helpful and let us change our times... More

Excellent facilities. Great location and setting. Well organised set up with friendly and knowledgable staff. Safety drill was well presented and thorough. Fun day team building, with great views! Challenging for most but fun physical activity

We'd visited another Go Ape, daughter loved it so much she dragged her Dad here the following week. He was more frightened that her (she is fearless!) Highly recommended.

My partner and I visited here after booking last minute and I loved every single second of it! I am scared of heights so thought I would try and take a leap of faith and conquer them for good! I arrived feeling very scared and nervous but after doing the training course with the instructor he made me feel a... More

I went with family and friends and had an excellent fun filled few hours. Ian was our instructor and he was really friendly and professional. There's nothing to fear as you can't fall if you follow the safety instructions.

Brilliant fun! The staff were really helpful and made sure everyone was confident in using the equipment. The course is great with a variety of sections. The zip line over the edge of the reservoir was fantastic.
