Something different for a day out with the loved one Loved the air rifle shooting but found out that the other half is a deadly sniper. Quad biking was a good experience the seesaw was much funner than the limbo. The most enthusiastic instructor award has gotta go to Sam thanks for the day out!

Extreme Quad biking I booked this experience for my partner birthday an when he was let down by his friends I had to step in but was extremely frightened as I haven't done quad biking before. Daz our instructor was great at reassuring me an ensuring I knew how to operate the bike. Daz was extremely patient and very reassuring with me. When Daz could see I was comfortable on the bike an had my bearings he pushed our skills to the next level making the course fun and exciting. It was by far one the best experiences I have had, I pulled up at the end with such an adrenaline rush wanting to do the course again. Thanks Daz for making our experience exciting and safe we be back.
Great Experience!! It was a great experience, value for money!! Time spent on the bikes was good, was worried it wouldn’t be enough. But it was really good!
Would highly recommend!
Fun Experience There were good instructions from Sam both before and during our session. It was a really enjoyable and fun experience. We drove through a large wooded area.
