Alton Towers Aerial Assault Course


1. Alton Towers Tree Top Quest, (high ropes)

The Tree Top Quest is located outside of the theme park within the new Enchanted Village complex and  is open to residents & non-residents alike.  Whilst you do not need purchase theme park tickets to access the Tree Top Quest, there are charges in place for this new stand alone attraction.

This aerial assault course uses a continuous belay system, (often referred to as the Clip & Go), where you are attached to a continuous loop by a member of staff that remains in place until reaching the zip wire experience on the high ropes course.   This easy to navigate system works well for children & adults alike.

We found the high ropes course offers a good range of obstacles along the route including zip wires & cargo nets whilst you negotiate tyres, hurdles & rope challenges.  The great advantage was the range of zip wires within the course as well as a long zip at the end, (4 in total).

However the course is short and, for those with experience of other high rope courses, you’ll find yourself on the final zip wire quicker than Tarzan met Jane.  My 12 year old completed the course in 20 minutes. With no option of a second time around for experienced climbers, you may wish to consider whether this offers value for money.

Alton Towers High Rope Course


2. Alton Towers Tree Top Quest, (low ropes)

The low ropes provides younger guests with their first chance of tackling a ropes course but from a safe distance from the ground.  There is a trial course that all guests must initially undertake, under staff supervision, that provides children the skills required to navigate around the course.  There are also plenty of staff on hand to help out should the need arise too!

The low ropes course is set just a short distance from the ground & is suitable for children age 6 years & over with a minimum 1m height restriction. The high ropes course is set up for children age 11 years & over through to adults with a 1.4m minimum height restriction.

Tree Top Quest; Tips & Tricks

1. Passholders can pick up a 20% discount off standard prices.  If the passholder discount is not available when booking online, simply request a refund from the ticket booth on the day of your visit.

2. All guests using the Tree Top Quest can pick up free parking at the resort.

3. Beware that there no refunds available should younger guests change their minds once they see the course!  Try to ensure this is an activity they would enjoy before paying in advance.

4. Opt for a camera to be attached to your helmet to capture the experience or pick up your photo from the final zip wire…but all at a price!

For those staying at the resort, this is a fun add-on attraction for those with energy to burn. That said, we found that alternative aerial assault courses around the UK offered better value for money.
