Bristol’s Extreme Outdoor Adventure Activities will wow you.
In the past few years, Bristol has come into its own in terms of multi-cultural experiences and unique events, attracting thousands of tourists and groups of stag parties and hen dos from across the UK and further afield, every year. Although the city is most commonly known for its rich history in British maritime, as well as its sought after weekend food markets, Bristol’s thrill-seeking outdoor activities for groups have become hugely popular.
Whether you’re celebrating a newly-engaged, ‘soon to be groom’, or a company anniversary in a unique way, take a look at some of the top thrill-seeking group outdoor activities in Bristol.
It has to be said, paintballing has got to be one of the most exhilarating and adrenaline-filled outdoor activities out there. Paintballing courses in Bristol are also one of the most demanding in the South West, with acres of woodland becoming the backdrop of a great day out for older teenagers and adults. Only a couple of miles out from the city centre, it’s a brilliant day out – especially if you’re intending to end the day with some food and drinks in one of the very popular pubs or restaurants in Bristol!
If you’re looking to burn off some steam or a wicked team building outdoor activity, taking individuals out of their comfort zone, then paintballing should be at the top of your list in Bristol.
Inflatable Water & Assault Course
Now, if you haven’t watched the popular TV programmes such as Totally Wiped Out or Gladiators before, then you’re in for a real treat with this next thrill seeking activity.
Inflatable Water & Assault Courses in Bristol have been attracting groups of people from across the South West and further afield, due to the hilarious misfortunes of its contestants! The action-packed multi-activity inflatable course gets you and your friends to slip and slide, jump across moving beams and gather your core strength to climb over massive inflatable balls. This is possible the bounciest team challenge out there and you won’t be disappointed about how much enjoyment you and your fellow contestants get out of it. Commit, leap and slide your way to victory.
With courses available in the centre of Bristol, you’re not far away from having one of the best days out with your colleagues, friends or family!
As one of the fastest growing sports in the UK, Footgolf is a hybrid sport, combining football and golf! It’s a challenging outdoor activity, testing pinpoint accuracy and, of course, your ego. Although it’s not necessarily a thrill-seeking activity as such, as you can imagine, it’s a very ‘addictive’ sport and gets men and women alike wanting to come back for more!
With 12 or 18 holes in Bristol catering for every distance, challenge and variable going, you will need to combine power and precision to gain the fewest shots possible to be crowned the winner.
