Fancy taking the wheel? Unleash your inner racer on Adrenaline Quarry‘s 800m all-weather track, suitable for adults, teens, and kids from the age of 7. Here, you can challenge your family and friends on the massive circuit, and take home lap-by-lap data printouts. There are also karts for younger children which can be driven on the 80-metre track.
Ziplining gives you the chance to speed through forests or above rolling countryside while secured by a harness to a wire. It’s a great alternative for those who are afraid of the falling sensation you feel with bungee jumping, but definitely not a popular choice for those with a fear of heights! With Hangloose Adventure Eden, you can reach speeds of up to 60 mph over the Eden Project which is bound to get that heart rate up! For all the right reasons!
White water kayaking
White water kayaking involves navigating turbulent, fast-flowing rivers aboard a one-person vessel. Both physically demanding and mentally stimulating, this is an activity that perfectly combines the thrill of adventure with the natural beauty of the countryside. You can create unforgettable memories and nurture a deep appreciation for the untamed power of nature during this activity.
