The Euros, Wimbledon and the Olympics mean that this is a great summer for the armchair sportsman.
But if the biggest thrill of your day comes from finally discovering the TV remote down the back of the sofa then it’s probably time to recalibrate your excitement levels.
Take up today’s Big Deal with Action Adventure Activities near Stirling and your life could get a whole lot more colourful.
Lots of activities
This jam-packed Big Deal comes in two different sizes. Option one includes a session of climbing and abseiling as well archery and mountain boarding. Option two offers five activities: climbing and abseiling plus sphereing, 4×4 driving, archery and mountain boarding.
Choose option 2 and you will receive a hearty BBQ to enhance your adventures. No man, or indeed woman, should be expected to face the climbing wall without the prospect of a burger.
Are your archery skills up to Legolas levels? Can you find the bull’s eye better than Robin Hood? With archery sessions which are fully demonstrated and supervised by the centre’s instructors, this is one activity which really tests hand to eye co-ordination.
Let’s not beat about the bush. Mountain boarding is basically an off road skateboard zooming down a grassy hill. If you’re feeling brave/foolish you can even attempt to catch some air and make it over the jumps.
Climbing combines strength, flexibility, balance and nerve. This is an ideal session for anyone wanting to learn the basics of climbing and abseiling. As well as the climbing wall in the all-weather barn, there is also a tree-climb for those who like to keep it natural.
Strap into the sphere
Whether you want to call it sphereing, zorbing or orbing, this 360 degree thrill ride is one experience that you won’t forget. Strapped inside a giant inflatable rubber ball, you will career down a hair-raising sphere course.
Each sphering run lasts approximately 20-30 seconds. You will probably laugh. You may well scream. But one thing is certain: each run could be the most adrenaline-filled thirty seconds of your life.
Off Road Driving
This introduction session to the world of 4×4 driving is perfect for first timers and for younger drivers alike.
Before you get your chance to drive, your instructor will demonstrate the techniques required to negotiate both the circuits on the farm and the woodland course at the Action Adventure base. Each driver will enjoy approximately 20 minutes behind the wheel of a Land Rover Discovery. This session is shared with up to 4 other drivers.
Action Adventure Activities have spent over 30 years in the Scottish hospitality industry and their staff have a wealth of experience in many outdoor pursuits.
This means that while your thrilling adventure activities may well get your heart pounding, health and safety concerns are paramount and all the necessary safety equipment will be provided for your adventure.
This rip-snorting Big Deal would make a great day out for a teenage party but it would also be ideal for hen or stag groups; work groups or simply a party of friends keen to try something different in the beautiful surrounds of Scotland’s great outdoors.
