Bungee jumping

Do you want to feel the adrenalin course through your body? Then a bungee jump is the experience for you! Whether you want to jump forwards or backwards, on your own or attached by the ankles to a friend, you can take the leap indoors or outdoors.


Zorbing, or sphereing as it’s also known, is fast becoming one of the most popular experience days available. Strap yourself into a big inflatable ball then hurtle down a hill! You can go with a friend or make it wet with an aqua sphereing experience.


Do you want to throw yourself from a plane? Well you can! Do a tandem skydive from 15,000 feet, a parachute jump from 3,000 feet or just visit a simulator. Whichever skydiving experience you go for, it’ll be an experience to remember forever.

Driving a supercar

Take the wheel of a supercar and enjoy high speed action on a famous race track. There’s a huge range of cars to choose from, including Ferrari, Audi R8 and Porsche. Fancy a Lamborghini, Aston Martin or Lotus Elise? Drive whichever motor your heart desires!

Aerobatic flight

Have you always secretly considered yourself Top Gun material? Then learn how to loop the loop and go tail chasing. You’ll also get amazing views from your Cessna 150, Bulldog or World War 2 Chipmunk.

High ropes

A day of fun on high ropes and zip wires above the forest floor is an ideal adventure for big kids. This is an especially massive challenge for those with a fear of heights, but the tightrope walking and G-force 3G swing will make it all worthwhile.



Test your nerve as you climb up sheer rock faces, hurl yourself off cliffs and explore caves. This adventure sport combines cliff jumping, rock climbing, swimming and scrambling. Explore the might of nature under expert guidance.

Face your phobias at the zoo

Have you always had a fear of snakes? Do spiders and creepy crawlies make your skin crawl? What better way to beat your phobias than a hands-on day at the zoo! Discover the friendly side of animals that terrify you, from exotic birds to rare lizards.

Paintball battle

Gather a group of mates and declare battle at a paintballing event! Test your tactical and physical skills through a series of challenges as you explore the British woodlands. Junior paintballing is also available for young thrill seekers.

Fly a helicopter

Take to the sky in a Robinson R22 or R44 helicopter. You can get behind the controls of a helicopter under the supervision of a qualified professional. Some packages even let you take passengers too, so you can show off your skills in front of your friends.
