We’re thrilled to have teamed up with Eaton Vale again

to bring you our awesome Family Adventure Day!


We’re very excited to announce the return of our awesome Family Adventure Day!

Please read the important information below to read about the TICKET ONLY entry to this years event ***ON SALE NOW***

Those of you that have been in previous years will know that it is an amazing opportunity to try out some of the fantastic outdoor activities that the brilliant Eaton Vale Outdoor Activity Centre has to offer – from Family Canoeing to Archery, Axe Throwing and Air Rifle Shooting to High/Low Ropes, Climbing, Trapeze, Catapult Shooting, Go Karts, and even a Caving Bus!

Street food and drinks stalls for lunch.

Teas, coffees and cakes will, of course, be on sale in our cafe area.

A full list of activities can be found below.

Please read the following important information to ensure that you order the correct tickets.


Tickets will be valid for the whole event day: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. 

All persons attending will require a valid ticket. Your purchase confirmation email will form your ticket, however we will have lists at the entry point – you will not need to print your ticket.

There are two types of ticket:

  • ‘All-in’ (All Activity) – includes unlimited turns on all activities, suitable for those age 5 and above (a couple of age/size exceptions – see below), for the whole day!
  • ‘Basic’ (Entry & Basic Activity) – for all spectators and smaller children. Anyone attending who does not wish to partake in the main adventure activities will need this ticket. This ticket includes all activities suitable for children under 5. The ticket does not include the main adventure activities for ages 5+, however ‘Basic’ ticket holders will be allowed to accompany ‘All-in’ ticket holders in their group onto the canoes – this includes adults and younger children, providing thy can fit into the buoyancy aids provided.
    All participants will receive a wristband on arrival which indicates the type of ticket purchased. This will need to be shown at each activity.


All-in ticket holders will need to re-join the end of the queue to take further turns on any activity. We cannot guarantee that you will be able to have multiple turns on all activities, however if you arrive with plenty of time you should get at least one turn on every activity and more than one turn on your favourites. It is your responsibility to manage the your time on the day to ensure that you get the most out of your ticket – some activities may have periods where there are longer queues – it may be advisable to return later in this case.

Some activities may close for short periods of time throughout the day to allow staff to take rest breaks. These will be coordinated to minimise the number closed at any time.


The activities planned for this years event are as follows:

Main activities (Participant ticket required):

Air Rifles
Cave Bus
Obstacle Course

Climbing Challenge

Tomahawk Throwing

Additional Activities:

Bouncy Castle
Fire Lighting

Forest Schools
Games Tent
Go Karts
Low Ropes
Puzzle Challenge
Shelter Building
Soft play


As with every year, there are some minimum age/height/size restrictions which apply to activities, for safety reasons.As such, Eaton Vale have advised that all of the main ‘Participant Ticket’ activities are suitable only for ages 5 and up. Children who are small for their age may not be big enough for some activities – this will always be the decision of the instructor in charge of an activity.Two activities have higher age limits. They are:

Trapeze (High Ropes) = Age 7
Air Rifles = Age 10

Children under the age of 5 are very welcome to join us with a ‘Non-Participant Ticket’ and will be able to take part in any of the additional activities available on the day that are deemed suitable for younger children.


Family Canoeing is very popular and has limited capacity.

At peak times we may operate a ‘return later’ policy, to minimise the wait to get onto the water. In this case you will be given a time to return to the activity later on. This will be at our discretion and may mean that you can only canoe once.

All children under 13 MUST be accompanied by an adult (either in the canoe or at the waters edge). The accompanying adult DOES NOT require an ‘All-in’ wristband if they accompany the child in the canoe, however any adult who would like to canoe without a child must have an ‘All-in’ wristband.


We will have tea, coffee & soft drinks on sale in our cafe area, along with a lovely selection of cakes and bakes.

This year we will also have a small area for street food vendors who will be selling their own goods.

Picnics are welcome too!


Please note that Eaton Vale is a dog free site – no dogs are allowed.


Please park only in the designated car park on site – this is included in the price of your ticket – or even better, arrive on foot, by bike or by public transport.

Disabled parking is available and the main buildings of the site are accesible, however please note that most of the activities are located in areas that are hilly with trees and soft ground.
