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.

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Cannock

31st August 2016

Brilliant went with my 5 year old son. All instructors made us feel safe and aware of the activity. Remembering everyone's names and encouraging us though out. Will be booking again in the near future for my wife to experience the adrenaline pumped adventure. My son really felt the achievement of completing both circuits only showing hesitation a couple of times. Thanks again to the Cannock staff.

The young man you gave my 5 year old son and I our briefing (Ben) was excellent, this gave Henry all the confidence he needed to have a great time.

One of our party was 10, the minimum age, and found the instructions a bit hard to follow and the karibiners were quite stuff for her fingers to open and clip on. I would have liked to have discussed what she needed to be able to do before we booked because it is not clear on the website. If a child is just above the minimum height, the grab ropes are above their head making it quite slow to traverse the walkways. Otherwise a really good morning.

I like to say the team at the high climb adventure ropes were fabulous and outstanding service from all the team, they made us feel welcome safe, and made sure we all enjoyed it they deserve real credit as a team. The tworld gentle man at the climbing wall and archery rushed us through the both activities and we all felt like we weren't welcome and we inconvenienced them by being there but other than that an outstanding day.

FOREST SEGWAY, Delamere

I did Segway at Skipton Castle a few years ago - this was so much better. Better routes, faster Segways!! My only negative would be getting on for the first time in a stoney area - not good if you fall. At Skipton it was grass. Other than that - loved it

My fiance and daughters all went for the first time. The staff were very welcoming and explained the experience fully. They welcomed the trial course before they left for the woods, so were a little more confident before they set off. The scenery and course were fantastic, they thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to go again.

Thought the booking in process was a little confusing as there did not seem to be much direction other than read the safety sheet away from the desk and then come back once read and sign sheet and then just wait (you seem to be standing with people who are not involved in Go Ape and may be waiting for relatives already on the course). However, an instructor did call us over once our group had arrived. Fletcher who put us in our safety harnesses and gave the safety briefing was second to none (excellent comes to mind - thank you Fletcher). I did not realise how scared I am of heights but the safety talk was excellent and we made it around the course safely. Only down side to venue is the cost of parking (we were there just over 4 hours and it cost £9!!) which you need to factor into the cost of Go Ape so makes it an even more expensive afternoon but it was good fun and definitely would recommend. Thank you.

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Battersea Park

So this was an experience I booked for my 6 year old niece and before she even started the course she looked like she was going to cry as she was stuck and no one was helping her. I asked if I could just unblock the bit near the stairs as she is stuck and the instructer said no as I would have to pay to go up the stairs. I politely asked if she could help my niece which she verbally told her what to do but like a scared 6 year old she needed someone to help and show her. Reluctantly I had to pay so I could just help her get up. After that first hurdle she was fine. I had no intention on doing the course but had to carry on until I could come off. I didn't see anyone on ground watching as there were so many youngsters just looking like they were having a social. I was told they couldn't help her as they were short staffed but I saw plenty of people standing around just talking. I had to pay to do the jr experience just because someone couldn't go up a few steps to show a 6 year what to do. Even with my niece crying when I booked onto another time slot the staff showed no compassion. For a jr tree top adventure, staff who know how to deal with children would be useful. My niece was only scared as she didn't get the friendly experience I would have hoped. Just like a bunch of people who have come to do their job and not properly. The adventure itself was a wonderful experience but I feared for her safety as soon as I got off the course and watched her as no one else was around. I assumed a member of staff would follow the group around and that's what you are paying for. If that happened the £18 is worth it but instead I paid double to do someone else's job which wasn't value for money at all.
