Go Kart Racing
"Real drivers drive outside"
At Deeside Activity Park we have a purpose built asphalt kart racing circuit. We use Bizz 200 racing karts, perfectly balanced and geared for the 375m circuit. Exclusive use for parties as small as 4, with instructors who really know how to drive.
You will receive a full safety brief, helmets, track walk and flag recognition before you start, a few practise laps getting to know the machine and the surface. Working up to qualifying timed laps and a place on the grid. Then a series of head to head races, to find a champion!?
In our ‘Petrol-Head’ pavilion. A large indoor space to keep you dry whilst receiving your safety brief and most importantly, it houses our new electronic timing system, as every kart is chipped and timed to show you the fastest round the karting circuit, and who is the most improved driver.
Go Kart Racing can be a stand alone activity, or part of a multi-activity event and it makes for a great finale at the end of a day.
Quad Bike Riding and Trekking
If you’ve ever longed to get thoroughly mud splattered riding across rough and unstable terrain on a 4 wheel quad bike then this is the activity for you. It’s suitable for everyone from the complete beginner to the more experienced rider and we have a range of quad bikes to suit from 8 years to 80 years old.
This is an instructor lead lesson, which starts in the field to see how you handle the Quad Bike. Your booking is your time with the instructor, and we don’t mix groups, the Quad bike riding and trekking will be made to suit your group’s abilities. We provide you with a full safety brief first, a Helmet and wellies if you so wish. We do not provide coveralls, so we do recommend you wrap up warm, and don’t wear your best clothes for this activity.
Our 100 acre site on beautiful Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire has a variety of terrain from gentle grassland, to forest tracks, to our extreme 4x4 off road driving course. You’ll be amazed at what these Honda quad bikes can get over. And, if you really master the skill, then we’ll get you balancing on our quad bike see-saw. Remember, quad bike trekking is an off-road activity - if you’re looking for speed, try our Go Kart Racing.
We offer 1 hour quad biking for groups of adults and for older children with our 2 hour treks for over 16’s only who are really keen and experienced.
Please note that the 2 hour, £60 children’s/family taster package includes quad biking in the field only and not quad bike trekking.
Anyone can drive a Defender or Commander right?
Not the way we do it they can't! We blindfold the driver and let their mates guide them into or out of oblivion depending how good they are as a team. We can even add that little bit more excitement and confusion by adding opposite steer. That should make for fun on the see-saw!
Did you know... there's more than one way to dig a hole? One way is to use a spade, The other is using a bucket and that's a whole (ptp) other game of shovels. With the help and guidance of one of our trained instructors you too can learn the basics of a digger. It's okay, we won't blindfold you and, sorry we don't do half-holes here at DAP, only whole holes.
Be it on our own loch (lake) or on the bonnie river Dee nearby, Fishing can be very satisfying. Learning to fish is the hardest bit but it mostly involves some casting and lots of waiting. Our instructors can teach you to prepare, bait, cast, and land. not to mention various other fishy things. Come along and learn a new and relaxing hobby.
Deeside Activity Park prides itself on having the largest range of target sports available in one place in Scotland. Archery, Axe Throwing, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Rifle Range. and Crossbows. You'll get some preliminary training, a safety briefing and then it's your shottie. (ptp)
If you like a good walk in the beautiful countryside of Aberdeenshire, then come along and pick-up one of our orienteering maps.
We have a short course for the youngsters and those looking for a gentle stroll, and a longer course for the fit and keen among you.
