8 Awesome Adventures for Adrenaline-Junkies
If you think Cornwall is all about sun bathing on the beach and walking around museums and art galleries, think again! There are lots of action-packed activities for thrill-seekers to try, so get ready to plan an exciting Cornish adventure!
This exciting outdoor adventure centre is set in a freshwater lake between Falmouth and Helston where you can try lots of adrenaline-fueled activities such as wakeboarding, cable tow and wipeout! Bounce, slide and climb on a 60-metre, floating, inflatable assault course at one end of the lake! There's room for up to 30 people on the wipeout course and we can promise that you'll fall off plenty of times, but you won't stop smiling either!
Based in various location across Cornwall, this 'walking on water' style activity is a fantastic way to explore the parts of Cornwall that most people don't see! Discover hidden caves and coves, paddle past breathtakingly dramatic coastline, and look out for spectacular sea-life. Whether you choose a sea or river adventure, this will be an experience you'll never forget.
If a land-based excursion is more your style, you won't want to miss the fantastic Segway Tour in Bude. If you haven't set foot on a segway yet, you're missing out! The Segway uses gyroscope technology and self-balances, which means you don't need to balance the segway, but just control where you want to go. Enjoy meandering through the stunning scenery of the Tamar Valley and see who can race the fastest down the hills!
Are you ready to try the longest zip-wire in England?! SkyWire at Eden will soar you high above millions of tropical plants and the surrounding countryside. Get ready to cruise 660 meters at a cool 60mph, in no more than 45 seconds - pure exhilaration! If you're still feeling brave after this, why not try the 20m giant cliff swing?! Gravity will launch you into the air on an epic adventure. You'll barely have time to appreciate the jaw-dropping view as you'll be dropping back down to Earth in a breath-taking 50mph free fall...
Another one for those who want to conquer their fear of heights! Embark on a memorable flight experience and enjoy panoramic views of the beautiful Cornish countryside. Take Instagram pics to make your mates jealous or sit back and enjoy a glass of champagne, high above the ground! The perfect way to see Cornwall from a whole new perspective.
Have you got a need for speed? At 'Cornwall's ski resort on a beach' you can choose from some incredible activities such as surfing, kitesurfing, waveskiing, traction kiting, kitebuggying, land boarding and mountain boarding. This combination of land-based and water-based activities means you and your friends can all try something new and have an exhilarating experience by the sea. When you're finally worn out, head over to the Beach Hut for some tasty snacks.
Have an unforgettable experience on a very big zip wire over the lake. At 490M long, 50M high & reaching speeds of 40mph, this will be an adventure to remember. The Giant Swing is not for the faint-hearted: it can load up to three at a time, pull you high in the air and then launch you 170ft over the lake before you fall backwards and weightless towards the ground. Then there's axe-throwing, coasteering and the blob, a human catapult!
Surrounding by the rugged Bodmin moorland, Siblyback Lake offers a wide range of activities for outdoor adventurers. The Outdoor + Active Centre offers lots of watersports including sailing, windsurfing and canoeing and provides top quality rainbow trout fishing. Then there's the Siblyback Segway Experience, high ropes and archery, as well as cycle hire for exploring!
