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!

  • My husband and I did did the course at Rivington on Friday. There were six other people in our group. We received full instructions and training from Luke at Go Ape before we started the course. My husband was the oldest in the group at 62 (the other people were all around 20). We thoroughly enjoyed the course and Luke was watching us and checking we were ok throughout. All the staff were very friendly. Definitely wear something you don't mind ruining as you will get dirty. Bring a change of clothes. There are places to sit and eat your own food or a large barn next to the place that offers snacks and meals. Lots of places to go walking, if you have any energy left. Sat Nav gets you very close but keep going another few hundred yards.

  • Great Fun. I had a nervous 13 year old young lady with me who completed the course to her great amazement with the help of the staff. Great day out...


  • 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.
