Northern Ireland Adventureland Weekend

Here are some of’s top picks (if we could list them all we would!) for Northern Ireland Adventureland Weekend 2012:

Activities for £10 

Zorbing, The Jungle, Co. Londonderry, Sun 25th March

Picture yourself inside a massive inflatable ball (approx 3 meters in height) hurtling at high speed down a hill face...and get ready for an adrenaline packed ride of your life.  Once at the bottom you get to do it all over again - never has the phrase ‘that’s how I roll’ been more apt!

4x4 Off Road Experience, Superdrive Motorsports Centre, Co. Armagh, Sat 24th March

Forget the boring daily commute, tackle Superdrive's purpose built track in a 4x4 Mitsubshi Shogun.  Strap yourself in and get ready to climb hills, slide around on banks, enter the water filled pit of doom, and even try to balance on a giant see-saw.

Paddle and a Pint, Mobile Team Adventure, Belfast, Sat 24th March

Round up your mates or come along and meet others canoeing in the middle of the stunning Lagan Valley Regional Park only minutes from Belfast City Centre.  Try canoe polo, slide down the steep bank into the water or simply enjoy a relaxing paddle in a canoe or kayak along the River Lagan.  Once you’ve worked up an appetite head to the Ramada Surburbia Bar where you can receive 15% off food.  The perfect end to a Saturday afternoon and the perfect start to a Saturday night!

Wet Bouldering, Outdoor Concepts, Co. Down, Sat 24th & Sun 25th March

Wet bouldering is all about the water – make your way up a river, jump into pools, climb up waterfalls and feel the rush of the water on this wet and wild experience.  Kitted out in a wetsuit, helmet and buoyancy aid you are sure to have a laugh as you take the plunge with friends. Check out our blog to see how Chris from got on during an action packed wet bouldering session.

Trailrider, Corralea Activity Centre, Co. Fermanagh, Sat 24th March

Get down and dirty on Corralea’s specially designed mountain bike trails.  Put your skills to the test on the steep climbs, descents and technical structures of the pump track.  Have a go at bunnyhops, wheelies and ladder bridges under the supervision of experienced instructors or take it down a level and enjoy the trails as they meander along the waters edge.  Bike and helmet hire is included in the price so you don’t have the hassle of bringing your own.
