Treetop Challenge

Winter Opening closed from 2nd December - 14th February 2020. Closest open location for Treetop Challenge is Go Ape Grizedale

On the edge of the moors, there’s a wonderful sense of wilderness to Rivington Go Ape. High up in this open, spacious site, our Treetop Challenge offers the perfect blend of blood-pumping action and beautiful country views.  With 13-metre-high platforms and a brilliant free-falling Tarzan Swing, this is the only Go Ape location in the UK to feature a zip wire over water. Remember to open your eyes and soak up the view of the reservoir!

Prices from: £25

  • Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I was impressed how well the manager and staff treated my son who only made it to stage 2 before it all becoming too much for him. The way they showed compassion and support was excellent, so thank you. I will be passing on my experience to friends and family and will try the zip wires in Grizedale forest too. Many thanks again, Martin Ormesher

  • Brilliant experience. Staff very friendly and helpful


  • I went with my 12 year old son, and we are both relatively scared of heights. It is not one of the highest courses but the zip lines are amazing...especially the longest one over the edge of the lake The instructors were welcoming, friendly and supportive around the course We both thoroughly enjoyed this and would go again!
