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.

We very much enjoyed it, however, on item 4 there was a large jolt on the zip wire and my son did experience neck pain the next day. I feel this may need looking at. But it didn't put him off and we all had s great day, but it would make me think about booking again

Had such a great experience at Itchen Valley! Superb course extremely well maintained and definitely pushed you to your limits. The staff were the best part though both at check in and the course instructor could not do enough for you and were really friendly. They even jump started my car for me after I stupidly left the lights on, way beyond the call of duty! Thanks for a great laugh and highly recommend this course.

I arranged the go ape treetop adventure as a surprise for my freinds 30th and it was the perfect way to face and overcome fears, we were so proud of ourselves and each other for getting round. It's very tough but worth every moment of sheer terror before jumping into the Tarzan swing.

The junior course was good for the age range as it was for a child's birthday, the only disappointment was that a young girl not from our group was in front and froze halfway across an obstacle which delayed everyone by about 10-15 minutes as no one could get to her as once your on the junior course you can't get off and no one can get around you. Not sure if there is anyway around this. Other than that it was a great experience for a group of 8 year olds. Would be good to see if there were packages available for Children's birthdays where food is provided (or woodland picnic) and also if packages are done to combine more of the activities in one price so it could be a complete day out. You may do this but i couldn't;t see it advertised while I was there. Thanks

Absolutely amazing day! Only thing that put a slight downer was the walk all the way round the park beforehand due to the work on the car park. This made us slightly late but all staff were understanding and great fun which definitely made up for it!

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Leeds Castle

We booked this for our sons birthday party and overall they all had a good time but the young guy who was giving out the safety instructions to the boys about the harness was incredibly miserable and was obviously having a bad day. He asked if the boys had any questions and when they did, he just rudely told them to be quiet and had a sense of humour loss with some boys who were understandsbly excited. The only reason I didn't say anything was because I didn't want to spoil my sons birthday, but he was the same with every child there. Miserable, rude, curt, wasn't enjoying his job and definitely shouldn't be working with children!!!

Tough but so satisfying and parts would even be described as fun. Elements were seriously tough but launching yourself off a platform into the air as you hurtle down a zip line is a lot of fun!

Booked to do the Forest Segway with my friend (both in our 50's). We were a bit concerned that we may be a bit old and odd but the staff gave us a very warm greeting. Our Segway leader was totally lovely and looked after us very, very well.

This was a Mothers Day gift from my son for me and his dad. We absolutely loved it..such good fun. Initially I thought I might be a bit 'old' for this but the staff made me feel at ease and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. What I particularly liked was although the safety briefing etc emphasised the 'high risk activity' once considered competent, we were left with minimal supervision to just enjoy the course at our own pace.

An amazing experience for my son and his friend on a random teacher training day in the middle of September, which meant we had the whole place to ourselves! The rain didn't bother us...it just added to the experience. The instruction was very thorough and pitched just right for my 12 year olds. We enjoyed every minute and the whole course was far longer than I expected, the zip wires super long and high and the Tarzan swings thrilling. Thank you so much to Emma and the team 10/10
