Attraction Information

Go Ape Rivington is a course like no other, with the only zip-wire over water in the Go Ape family! Pair that with a high-wire adventure and you've got a fabulous family adventure. Whatever activity you decide to do, just remember to have fun and GO APE! 

Located close to Bolton and only 30 minutes from Manchester, Rivington is hailed as the mini Lake District of Manchester and is home to Go Ape Rivington! Packed with award-winning outdoor adventure activities, like exciting zip-wires, a Tarzan swing and a sense of wilderness. It's truly an adventure for thrill seekers, whether you're high above the ground in the trees, or exploring on the forest floor.

Fun Activities for Thrill Seekers
Treetop Challenge is Go Ape’s original and most popular high ropes adventure. In 2-3 hours, you’ll tackle more than 35 crossings - no mean feat - before you consider the challenges ahead. Rope bridges lead up to wobbly stepping stones, free-falling Tarzan swings and a ‘spiders web’ to shuffle your way across. Are you up to tackling this high-wire adventure? 

Ready for the main thrill? Strap in and zip your way over the bay of Lower Rivington Reservoir. It’s a true spectacle, not to be missed! It's a hit with adrenaline lovers! Rivington has even won the label of one of Lancashire's ‘must visit' locations - so what are you waiting for?

Extend Your Day Out
Fancy a leisurely stroll? Head over to Rivington Terraced Gardens to discover hidden paths, caves, structures and lakes. It's the perfect way to wind down after a heavy dose of thrill on the epic zip line experiences.
How about exploring woodland bustling with wildlife, hiking up rugged hills and strolling past picturesque reservoirs? Being 1,191 feet above the ground, you're in for a scenic treat! 

Food & Drink
Families can bring their own picnics as there is a lovely picnic area with benches and tables. Or you can enjoy light bites and delicious drinks at the Great House Barn Café.

Transport & Parking
This Go Ape location has free parking but make sure to leave additional time to park as it can get very busy!
