Treetop Challenge

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!

  • I had a fantastic day here yesterday. The staff were great, they really encouraged us as we were going round and were good fun. I have been to other Go Apes but this was the best so far in terms of all round experience. The zip wire over the water gave us some amazing views.

  • Staff absolutely brilliant However with all the safety features it made the course completely boring to me. When I was a child climbing trees (no harnesses)I knew if I didn't concentrate on my safety I would get hurt, in today's society we are not allowed to take responsibility for our own actions and are becoming a society of numpties.


  • 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
