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 who enjoy a whole day out. 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.
