Tree top walk Manchester

A tree top walk is one of the most exhilarating new ways to entertain the kids on a day out.

There are a number of tree top walk centres in and around Greater Manchester, including Go Ape Rivington, Go Ape Buxton and Go Ape Delamere Forest.

Another option is Aerial Extreme near the Trafford Centre, while a new tree top walk, Tree Top Trek, is due to open in Heaton Park, Manchester in 2017.

Go Ape Manchester

The closest Go Ape for people living in Greater Manchester is likely to be Go Ape Rivington, which offers an experience that is unique in the country.

Situated on the outskirts of Bolton and in one of the most beautiful parts of the North West, it includes the only Zip Wire at a Go Ape site to travel over an expanse of water.

Great fun, if not for the faint hearted!

How Go Ape Began

The idea for Go Ape began in France in 2001 when husband and wife Tristram and Rebecca Mayhew were on holiday in the Auvergne with their six-month old baby and discovered how much fun it was swinging through the trees.

Already thinking about stepping off the corporate ladder, Tris and Becs saw an opportunity to start a business moulded by their own values. So they took a leap of faith, quit their London jobs and began the Go Ape adventure.

30 courses later, they’ve built one of the fastest growing companies in the country and have plans to take the Go Ape experience all over the UK and beyond.

Go Ape Rivington is one of the latest sites.
