Had such an amazing experience doing the 4x4 buggy and clay shooting. Having Shad as our guide was fantastic. His track for the 4x4 was insane/crazy! Tight turns really got the adrenaline going. 10/10 thanks so much Shad and adventure playground. - Rebecca and Josh

Interested in the 4wd buggy tour, Myself my Wife a daughter 5yr old and son 3yr old. Is it ok to take young children? The kids both ride dirt bikes regularly so they are familiar with it. We will be visiting 23 and 24th Nov 2016. Hope to hear back ASAP.

Sorry! I guess you've been there by now. I think it's great for those ages.
Hello, big family four kids, mum and dad. Kids are 8,10,13 and 15. Some time between 21 and 28 December. Could you advise if everyone could do the quads and the cost please. I've been before and know the kids will love it. Would youngest need to double up? What the youngest age?
