The wait is finally over, three years after his last big screen appearance Bond is back! If like us you’ve always dreamt of pulling on a tuxedo and being Bond for the day here’s how you can make your dream a reality..
Drive like 007
When he’s not clearing up at the casino, or smooth talking his way out of trouble Bond’s normally behind the wheel of his beloved Aston Martin, and our heart-racing driving experiences give you the chance to find out first hand just how fast his rides really are!
Fly Like 007
Judging by his on-screen antics 007 is a bit of an adrenaline junkie, which is probably why we love him so much here at Activity HQ! His stunts are the stuff of legend and one of our favourites is a death-defying skydive that features notorious Bond baddie Jaws, but don’t worry we promise to leave him behind if you decide to take the plunge from 15,000 feet!
Shoot like 007
Bond is one of the most lethal marksmen at MI6 thanks to the endless amount of bad guys that come his way, and if you want a similar test of shooting skill clay pigeons are just as hard to hit and almost as evil!
The mud and mayhem of a quad trek can be enjoyed by almost anybody and although quad bikes were originally created to make the lives of farmers and land owners easier they’re much more fun in the hands of an adrenalin junkie!
Quad bikes are also known as ATVs (all terrain vehicles) and as the name suggests they’re perfect for exploring the most rugged and rural parts of the countryside. From rough and rocky off-road tracks to winding woodland trails these four-wheeled beasts can conquer almost any terrain, which means nowhere is off limits!
A quad trek can take place almost anywhere, from the Australian Outback to the Dubai desert but here in the UK we have the perfect conditions for quad biking. After all who needs sunshine and soaring temperatures when you’ve got relentless rain and mud by the bucket load! As far as we’re concerned the more mud and rain there is the better because there’s nothing more fun than racing through puddles and churning up the mud on a quad bike.
In the UK treks normally take place on farmland and country estates and incorporate a whole host of natural obstacles, from impossibly steep hills to ditches and dirt tracks, you never know what’s lurking around the next bend! The quads don’t do all the hard work though and your driving skills will be put to the ultimate test as you work your way round the tricky off-road courses.
So if you want to explore the most rugged and rural parts of the country a quad trek is the perfect combination of mud and mayhem! To book your off-road adventure head over to www.theactivitypeople.co.uk and get ready for some serious four-wheeled fun!
There’s more than one way to get your heart racing this Valentine’s Day, and with just over one week left before the big day it’s probably a good time to start thinking about what’s going to make the perfect present. With that in mind here’s a look at some Valentine’s treats that are guaranteed to make your day even more memorable, and more importantly save you from the annual last minute trolley dash!
Romantic Shoot and Stay
For a romantic getaway you’ll both love a shoot and stay voucher is the complete package and combines the rest and relaxation of a short break with the fun and thrills of a clay pigeon shooting experience. Your break starts at the shooting ground where you and your partner will take on either 25 or 50 clays each before heading back to your hotel for a romantic meal and relaxing overnight stay, all included in the cost.
Tandem Bungee Jump
If you’re looking for a more extreme adrenalin rush to take on as a twosome, a tandem bungee jump is a surefire way to find out how brave you really are! Strapped together by your ankles, you and your partner will take the ultimate leap of faith from 160ft in the air. Whether you leap from a bridge or crane sharing this truly once in a lifetime activity is guaranteed to bring you closer together, after all how many couples can say they spent Valentine’s Day hurtling head first towards the ground!
Hot Air Balloon Ride
Take your romance to new heights by heading for the clouds in the wicker basket of a hot air balloon for a unique bird’s eye view of some of the most picturesque parts of the UK. The giant balloons ascend to heights of between 500-1500 feet and can travel up to 10 miles in a single journey giving you the perfect opportunity to take in the sights as you glide along the horizon. Once you’re back on the safety of solid ground it’s tradition to raise a glass to a successful flight, and any experience which finishes with a glass of champagne is guaranteed to score you some serious brownie points!
If you’re looking for an activity that guarantees fun, look no further! From full throttle races, to off-road treks and tours almost anything is possible on a Segway. The futuristic transporters may only have a top speed of 12.5 mph but they’re perfect for racing! Thrashing your Valentine in a Segway race and rubbing it in their face all day probably isn’t the most romantic way to spend a day, so if you’re looking for a more sedate experience there are a whole host of parks, off-road tracks and even country estates that are perfect for exploring on a Segway.
This awesome activity is guaranteed to have you head over heels by the end of the day as you and your partner climb inside a giant Zorb ball for the ride of your lives! Secured on opposite sides of the ball by harness you’ll be able to see the look of terror on each others faces as you bump, bounce, rock and roll down the steep sloped track. Once the initial shock of bouncing down a hillside in giant ball has passed the laughter kicks in, and you’re guaranteed to be in stitches when the ball finally comes to a halt at the bottom of the track.
If you’re always arguing about who’s the better driver this is definitely one way to settle the argument for good! A day at the track gives you the perfect opportunity to let out all that built up frustration and satisfy your need for speed as you battle it out to be first across the line. If you’ve not got a score to settle karting can be just as much fun, but it does make victory taste that little bit sweeter! Who said romance was dead?
