Fancy an even bigger challenge?

If all these rides have got your adrenaline pumping, your next challenge surely should be the Bag Jump, followed by the Zip Wire!

The Bag Jump has you jumping from multi-level platforms within the purpose built, aptly named Adrenaline Tower. Nothing in front of you but fresh air, jump into a cushioned bag from heights of 1m, 4m and 6m.

Successfully complete each level at the first attempt, and you will reach the highest platform…which, Wicksteed says, is higher than it looks – eek!

On to the Zip Wire! Wicksteed boasts one of the UK’s longest zip wires, and one of only two triple-line zip wires in the whole country. It’s definitely worth a go! Accelerating to speeds in excess of 30mph, this will bring out your family’s competitive natures as you compete to be the fastest.
