Summer holidays are an exciting time for the whole family. With our little island getting limited sunshine, it’s a mad dash for families to plan their Summer holidays with trips to resorts, theme parks and campsites. Well, what if we told you that having fun in the sun doesn’t mean long drives, endless queues or expensive accommodation. As the old adage goes, ‘a change is as good as a rest’ and we’ve got some stellar ideas to get you, your family and the dog excited about spending time in the sun this Summer.
Adventure Experience is synonymous with adventure golf. Our wide range of Florida-style mini-golf courses offers incredible excitement, competition and magic. Each of our adventure golf courses is designed to themes that will entertain big and little kids alike. From the swashbuckling adventures at Pirate Cove, at Bluewater shopping centre, to the heart-pumping excitement of playing among life-like dinosaurs at Jurassic Falls in Chingford, London, Dinosaur Escape in Northolt and Dinosaur Safari in Barnet, Hertfordshire, there’s something for everyone at Adventure Experience. With locations across England, you’ll find anyone of our pet-friendly courses conveniently located with food and drink options to keep you and your family energised for a day in the sun that won’t break the bank.
Take a step back in time and show your family who’s the boss with a round of 18 at your nearest Adventure Experience course.
Along with adventure golf, Adventure Experience offers a truly incredible Sky Trail high rope course with over 30 unique challenges. Situated at our Jurassic Falls site in Chingford this aerial experience is suitable for all ages with a unique system that allows for you to move through the course at your own pace. This activity is perfect for thrill-seekers with a swinging rope bridge, floating plank and other obstacles to tackle.
This adventurous activity is great for kids as well as adults and is regarded as one of the safest high rope systems in the world. The climbing route is expansive, challenging and allows you to take your time and enjoy the heights of our magical dino kingdom.
This heart-pumping fun requires no climbing experience and entertains beginners and experienced climbers alike.
If you’re more into seven seas and taking an altogether different activity, Pirate Cove offers an adventure experience themed on the adventures of pirates and privateers. Chief among this site is our fleet of electric GoGo boats. These boats carry up to four people and are perfect for the whole family. With a simple joystick control, life jackets and ergonomic seating, sailing the open water has never been so comfortable. This family-friendly adventure is the perfect addition to a visit to Pirate Cove and coupled with a round of golf on our themed golf course will have you and your little ones singing ‘yo ho ho’ in no time.
Maybe the open seas and a rope bridge are a little too slow for your tyke. Maybe your kids love putting the pedal to the metal. If so, Jurassic Falls is a must. We have a selection of animal-inspired mini quads that will have your little ones zooming around our exciting track. Parents can watch on from the spectator seating area and enjoy a break in the sun. Easy to operate and speed-limited, this safe activity will give your kids newfound confidence to take on the course while you soak up some much needed R&R.
This activity pairs fantastically well with our dino-themed adventure golf for a day that is guaranteed to be full of smiles, camera snaps and sunshine.
DIY Projects If you’ve got a bit more time to plan and a whole lot of creativity then why not make your own Summer activities. Treasure hunts, picnics, water balloon fights, the list is endless. Whether at home in your back garden or at the local park, Summer can be enjoyed without a flight across the Channel.
One of the best parts of Summer is the warm, clear nights. With the sun burning away the clouds, you and your family can enjoy balmy evenings filled with fun and adventure.
Stargazing is a great activity for the whole family and can help you create a new pastime or bond with your little one. The wonder of space is something that grips people of all ages so using your summer nights to search out the likes of Venus and Jupiter is a great way to fill the day with fun.
Nighttime also allows for some earthly adventures too. If your kids love nature take them bug hunting or bird watching. Magical creatures like fireflies, owls and bats come out to play at the witching hour and the light summer nights are perfect for spotting these rare creatures.
Last but not least, is a night time game of glow in the dark bowling. This simple game requires a ball for bowling, some plastic bottles filled with water, and glowsticks. Perfect for a lazy weekend, this game allows your kids to play well after the sun sets and enjoy the best of the warm evenings. Whatever you do make the most of Summer. When rainy weather and winter coats return you’ll be glad for the memories made with your loved ones this Summer.
