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 whole load of other high ropes fun and you’ve got a great day out raring to go.

The Treetop Challenge is a favourite with adrenaline junkies. In two to three hours you’ll have over 35 crossings to tackle - no mean feat in itself, and that’s before you consider the challenges ahead. Rope bridges lead up to wobbly stepping stones, a free-falling Tarzan swing and a ‘spider’s web’ to shuffle your way across. Ready for the main thrill? Strap in and zip your way over Lower Rivington Reservoir onto the bay beyond. It’s a true spectacle, not to be missed!

Rivington has been hailed as Manchester’s own mini Lake District; you can see why with its excess of reservoirs, rugged hills and intriguing wildlife. It’s even won the label of one of Lancashire's ‘must visit' locations, so what are you waiting for?
