Plans to build a 59ft (18m) climbing frame have been given the green light by a council in Teesside.
Stockton Borough Council's cabinet approved the £1m project at a meeting on Thursday.
Planning permission will now be sought for the four-storey high ropes course, which would be built next to the white water course at the Tees Barrage.
The council said it hoped the so-called Sky Trail would increase visitor numbers to the area.
Stockton Council's cabinet member responsible for leisure, Ken Dixon, said: "We already have a world-class facility in the white water course and the Sky Trail would complement this.
"Stockton is quickly becoming a fun and vibrant visitor destination."
The council will now draw up more detailed plans before submitting a planning application.
