Your Next Family Adventure Awaits!

Blackburn, Lancashire

Launched in summer 2023, Go Ape Blackburn is the first standalone location for young explorers. This thrill-seekers paradise will feature two of your favourite high-ropes experiences, Treetop Adventure and Treetop Adventure Plus.

Perfect for little ones over 1m tall just stepping up into the treetops or more cautious explorers, these hour-long adventures are filled with tricky tree-to-tree crossings, zip lines and more.

Plus, the 480-acre Witton Park is filled with nature trails, picnic spots and play areas so it’s an ideal day out for the family.

Looking for an even bigger adventure? Check out Treetop Challenge at nearby Go Ape Rivington for participants over 1.4m tall and 10 years.

Things to do at Witton Country Park

Located in Blackburn, Witton Country Park is a picturesque 480-acre estate which is peppered with pretty picnic spots, walks, nature trails, play areas and a visitor centre providing an ideal day out for all the family. The estate was once owned by the Feilden family, who built and lived in Witton House (1800 - 1946) and created the park at the same time.

Witton Country Park is the starting point of the Weaver’s Way. Also known as ‘The Way’, the 32-mile long distance walking trail passes landmarks such as the grade II listed Silk Hall, Pleasington Priory, and as the name suggests, weaver’s cottages. The landscape is picturesque, featuring reservoirs, valleys, woodland and views across the Pennine Moors.

Weaver’s Way can be tackled over a couple of days, or smaller circuit walks can be completed in isolation. Why not take in a section of the trail after your Go Ape high ropes adventure?

Finally, Witton Park also hosts some of the borough’s biggest events of the year too, including Restricted Rocks and Restricted Forest.

    This is the 1st time with family outdoor with my son and his age is 11. We had a great fun and adventures. We loved it. Will definitely make my calender booked for next time and more. I really enjoyed and playing. The guy named SEB at Sherwood was very friendly and cleared all my son doubt. He explained each and every thing regarding the safety and how to handle. Special thanks to him and his team. All staffs are good with their smiley faces. I strongly recommend who ever needs to relax and get their physical build and get motivated by yourself with different level of challenges. I could write more pages..... But in one word. I loved it. I will recommend to my friends and families members. I shall come along with them. Haahhaha

    We visited for the Treetop Adventure today. My 7 year old daughter managed both challenges with no worries or fear. My 9 year old nephew was very apprehensive, wary and cautious. He managed the first challenge really well and completed the zip line. When he got to the top of the second challenge his nerves kicked in and got the better of him. One of the amazing staff members Max stepped straight in and went up to have a chat with him. Max was great and rather than talk my nephew down he managed to guide him through the challenge. His support and encouraging chats got him all the way round the challenge. My nephew is over the moon he managed to complete it and did the zip line twice too. Just want to give Max and the team on shift today a huge shout out. Thank you all so much, you were great! We would highly recommend Go Ape Dalby. It was a fantastic day.

    Went to go ape today at mallards pike Forest of Dean to do the tree top challenge. I was part of the 11am booking my name is Rose. The two fellas that were supporting us how to do the challenge were amazing! I struggled from the start, but every so often they would shout out encouragement and offering support. I really felt like I couldn’t do it , but my family and their support I completed it. These guys made the entire experience better, for that I’m truly thankful. Sorry I can’t remember their names
