School and College are almost done for another year, now it’s time to relax and enjoy the summer!
Many of you may have already booked holidays, but if you don’t have anything planned, you’re up for some extreme fun, and fancy a little road trip across the UK, then you should definitely read on and check out our Top 5 ‘thrill-seeker’ activities to do this summer.
Adrenaline Quarry // Cornwall
Adrenaline Quarry does exactly what it says on the tin. It is an old abandoned quarry fully of adrenaline fuelled rides.
You can launch yourself off the edge of a cliff and fly down the UK’s maddest zip wire which is almost 500 metre long. How about a go on a giant cliff top swing which hangs 150ft above a lake? Or why not try unleashing your inner savage and get busy hurling axes – it’s like darts, but with axes!
Open every day until October, from 10am - 5pm and prices start at £12.50.
Inflatable Aqua Park // Chichester
If you’re a fan of the TV show Total Wipe-out then why not give it a go for yourself in Chichester.
The 40 acre fresh water lake has become the hub for water-based activities in West Sussex and the newly expanded Aqua Park, featuring climbing frames, slides, and trampolines, provides you with a challenging and tricky obstacle course for you and your mates to make your way around.
Open throughout the summer and it is £15 for 1 hour.
Capital Go Kart // London
Put the pedal to the metal and race around the UK’s longest indoor go kart track.
The Capital Go Karts track is 1,050 metres of professionally designed race course waiting to be put to the test. It is three times the length of a standard indoor go karting track and has been designed to offer an unbeatable racing experience for maximum enjoyment.
Open every day from 9am until Midnight (excluding Mondays) and prices start from £27.50.
Zip World Slate Caverns // North Wales
Zip World in North Wales has some pretty cool stuff, but what really caught our attention was Bounce Below. Jumping, swinging, and bouncing around this former slate mine takes us back to the mid-90s when we were introduced to Lara Croft Tomb Raider on the Playstation 1.
£20 for 1 hour if you are between 7 and 17 years old or £25 if over 18.
Zombie School // Worcestershire
If you’re anything like us then you’ve probably got a Zombie Apocalypse plan in place, but have you ever wondered what it would be like to actually be a zombie?
At Zombie School you will learn how to fit right in with the un-dead and become one of the horde. You will be given full zombie make-up and full training so you can master the skills of biting, gurgling, stumbling, and moaning.
Prices start at £24.99 for 3 hours, and you must be at least 16 years old.
