Go Ape Blackburn

Located to the west of Blackburn, just off the A674, in the heart of Witton Country Park.  Two high ropes courses sit proudly amongst the 480-acre estate, adjacent to the pavilion.  Tackle tricky crossings, fly down speedy ziplines and navigate yourself around the forest canopy.  Go Ape Blackburn is the latest to join Lancashire's top visitor attractions and comes highly recommended.  An action-packed day out for families and friends.

Treetop adventure
An action-packed one-hour introduction to high ropes life.   Go Ape treetop adventure is a jam-packed hour of intricate crossings, wobbly bridges and a zip wire finale.  Guaranteed to evoke screams and laughter.  It is a safe and controlled high ropes experience that uses a continuous belay system, meaning participants are always attached to the course.  Treetop adventure is an excellent way for children (and their supervising adults) to build confidence, learn about teamwork and develop problem-solving skills.  Whether you’re swinging by their side in the trees or cheering them on from below, you’ll be amazed at how much taller little monkeys walk after conquering the course.  Our treetop adventure courses are designed with the younger family in mind.

An empowering 60 minute aerial venture.  This high ropes experience will introduce you to a more challenging series of obstacles, higher platforms and longer zips.  You’ll absorb all the fun of treetop adventure and then some.  ​​​​It’s for those craving more freedom.  More height.  More thrill.  Rise to it and feel totally exhilarated.  It's a feeling you'll want to experience again and again.  ​​​​​​A high ropes activity designed for families with older children in mind.  This one hits the feel-good factor every time.
