Riding on a variety of terrain including hills, river crossings, forest tracks and lots of mud, a dirt biking experience is an adrenaline-pumping experience like no other. Packages vary from a gentle ride to get the hang of the bike and riding off-road to a more full-on package for the skilled rider to really be put through their paces. Also called motocross, this activity is popular with teenagers so a great gift idea for birthdays or Christmas.
Monster Truck Driving
Not so much in the way of speed, but more brute power to carve your way across an off-road course. This is the chance to get behind the wheel of a Monster Truck, Black Ice with a massive 18” lift with purpose built high arc suspension system, 44” tyres with adapted axles to cope with the large wheels by having 5 to 1 reduction differentials fitted. Get out the way, a monster is coming.

Know somone that would enjoy a gift of a tank driving experience, then this is for them.
