RIVINGTON

Lancashire

Hailed as Manchester's own mini Lake District, Rivington is a perfect location for Go Ape. With its rugged hills, picturesque reservoirs and woodland bustling with wildlife, it's proved to be a hit with adrenalin lovers. Nominated for Small Visitor Attraction in the Visit Lancashire Awards 2014, Go Ape Rivington is our only UK site to feature a 'water slide' - a 198 metre Zip Wire over lower Rivington Reservoir.

Know Before You Go

What should I wear?

We suggest that you wear something you don’t mind getting grubby. Dress for the weather, so bring along a mac if it’s raining! Make sure your stomach area is covered. Please wear appropriate footwear with soles with good grips. No sandals or slip-off shoes. You’ll need closed toe and heel shoes (with flat soles). Long hair must be tied back.

When do I need to arrive?

Make your way to the Go Ape cabin and be ready to get going on your Go Ape adventure at your booked time. Late arrivals that miss their session will be charged at full price.

Can I bring a camera?

Phones and cameras are permitted, as long as they always stay attached to the participant. Lanyards are available to buy from the cabin, subject to availability.

It's the second time I've done this in the 12 months since I was diagnosed with a rare, incurable cancer. The feeling of achievement at the end is absolutely incredible. I'd very much love to get to Grizedale and do the zip trekking adventure - that would be amazing - but it's a long, long way from home and who's to know when my time's going to run out? But on these two occasions at least, I have lived to the max. And it wouldn't have been the same without my 2 best mates - love you both

Overcoming my fears and perceived limitations. I have had a hip problem my whole life which meant that I couldn't do anything like this. I've had them both replaced so now I can try anything.....and succeed!!

My partner and my daughter completed the course. I tried but had no upper body strength. I think it is so well organised and friendly .. even though I didn't complete I was not made to feel like a failure. Well done guys on a great place

Really enjoyed the whole experience, loved how tricky some of the challenges were and with a little courage on my part we powered through. I went with my neice as it was her 5th birthday and that was her wish. She loved every minute of it, as we got off at the end she wanted to go round again. So much fun :)
