Aerial Adventure at Center Parcs

During our recent trip to Center Parcs we were up early on Saturday morning for our Aerial Adventure Challenge.

Now the Boys just love activities like this; so of course, Chris and I have got used to being dragged up climbing walls and trees, so were mentally prepared for what was ahead. This is the perfect activity for teens and adventurous families.

The Aerial adventure at Center Parcs was fantastic.

It’s amazing how activities like this can make the biggest and strongest of men turn to jelly, yet kids just fly round don’t they? Much to the disappointment of the boys, I went ahead so I could take the odd photo. Apparently I was quite slow, although I thought I did an amazing job.

The climbing course is great, it is challenging you need to use your upper body strength to negotiate the entire course, then you get to the first zip wire! Now this requires nerves of steel as you have to jump off and zip wire over a river eeek.

I must say I really felt the pressure being in front as I would never had heard the last of it had I chickened out, or indeed shown an inch of fear. But do you know what? It was amazing I loved it. Once across I nervously watched the boys with my heart in my mouth. But they didn’t bat an eyelid, just jumped.


The grand finale of the activity was another huge zip wire.

To be honest this felt easy after stepping off over a river. I would 100% recommend this as a family activity. We all loved it, yes you may have to push yourself a little and get over your fears; but that’s what being a Mum is all about isn’t it?

Here is a very short clip of the boys Zip wiring to the finish, yes I know I recorded it with my phone the wrong way round. But just wanted you to see how high it was, and  how much fun the zip wire is, it’s a great family activity.

And if you are wondering what to do at Center Parcs with teens? This a great Center Parcs activity to book, and has different levels making it the perfect activity for all ages.

    It is a total thrill! I remember doing it in France a couple of years ago and being terrified yet loving it at the same time, like you say it was the kids that kept me going, I couldn’t back out with them all showing no fear! Your post brings it all back to me. Thank you for sharing on Country Kids
