Why limit yourself to just one event when you can enjoy a thrilling multi-activity day? Choose any 4 of the following events (1, 2 or 3 activity combos also available; please ask for details):
Enjoy the mud and thunder of a thrilling quad biking session. If you like your activities rough and ready then this will be right up your dirt track. This is no leisurely trek through the woodlands - this is a 550m sports track with cambered bends to rag your quad around!
The quads are hefty 125cc Yamaha Breezes which are a step up from the ones on offer at most activity centres. Only real men can handle one of these so if you have any weaklings in your group you had better book them a double archery session.
After being given a few minutes to familiarise yourself with the quads under the watchful eyes of the instructors, you'll be taken on an obstacle filled safari along the challenging half mile course which features tight hairpins, tabletops and more bumps than an acne-ridden teenager's face.
Put your foot down and burn rubber in the beast of all buggies. With a 620cc engine and lightweight chassis, the buggies are capable of reaching a blistering 50mph in under 6 seconds. There are no gears to worry about so you can concentrate on hitting the racing line. The specially built course incorporates slaloms, chicanes and hairpins which will challenge even the most competent of drivers, so go hell for leather and push the karts to their eye-watering limit.
Each competitor will have plenty of practise laps to get to grips with the kart. There will be two karts on the track at one time, with a staggered start so that you have plenty of clear track ahead of you. Finally you will race in a pursuit, with the fastest times of the session going through to a final.
If the only experience you've got of archers is listening to Radio 4 on a Sunday morning, it's about time you tested your mettle at Robin Hood's favourite sport. You can hark back to a time when the bow and arrow was the most feared weapon in the world, and good archers were so feared that if they were captured during battle they would frequently have their fingers chopped off.
Under the tuition of experienced archers, you'll be let loose with a light but powerful long bow and hopefully by the end of the session you'll be piercing the bull's eye with regularity.
Blind Land Rover driving:
You may have been blind drunk before but you're unlikely to have been blind in charge of a Land Rover. You'll be behind the wheel of a rugged 4x4, doing your best to avoid a series of challenging obstacles whilst trying to decipher the instruction given by your back-seat driving friends.
If you find driving around town in a Fiat Panda tricky, prepare for a rough ride. Just remember: if your mates start screaming it's probably time to slam on the brakes.
With unique handlebar steering, these 6 wheel drive ex-military vehicles are like tanks with minds of their own. Once you've mastered the controls, all you have to do is point and drive. SuperCats are capable of driving virtually anywhere - rivers, roads, 45 degree inclines. You name it, it can handle it. Used by the British Military in harsh climates to transport supplies and traverse extreme terrain, these are great fun to play with.
Clay Pigeon Shooting:
Clay pigeon shooting used to be associated with posh old duffers in tweed jackets, but you don't need a Land Rover and a plummy voice to enjoy a session on the shooting range. This is a brilliant activity to get your competitive juices flowing, so expect lots of banter and plenty of sledging as everyone vies to be their group's 'Top Gun'.
Under the instruction of expert marksmen you'll be pumped full of top tips and shown how to handle the 12 bore shotgun. Clays will be fired from several different traps, ranging from the simple which will sit up and beg to be shot, through to more demanding which will speed off at a rate of knots.
By the end of the session hopefully you should be nailing the clays more often than not. My advice: track the clay like a hawk until it's on the tip of your gun and blast the life out of it.
If all that drinking the night before has sapped your energy and you're just too damn lazy to feel the strain of bow and arrows on your exhausted pint lifting arm, then crossbows are the option for you. Crossbows are basically guns with arrows instead of bullets. With a draw force far in excess of what can be achieved with a regular bow, you'll get the satisfaction of seeing that target well and truly nailed.
Fancy going head to head and battling for alpha male supremacy with one of your fiercest group rivals? We couldn't recommend anything more apt than racing with uncharted vehicles that require skill, co-ordination and teeth-gritting determination. We have just the vehicles for you: hovercrafts. Racing head to head around a slalom course with 360 turns, two 50 foot water straights (providing there's enough water to fill these in the heights of summer!) and thrills a plenty, these amphibious vehicles will sort out which of the guys just talk a lot of air pressure and who floats above the rest.
