Get that adrenaline pumping! The New Forest is full of fun activities and extreme sports that will get your heart racing and give you that rush of excitement.

It’s good to feel adrenaline once in a while, it gets the blood flowing through the body and it increases respiration and glucose levels! Another benefit of boosted adrenaline is that it increases your cognitive abilities due to the brain being more oxygenated and it heightens your awareness!

Plus, the activities that enhance the flow of exhilaration are super fun to do!!!

We’re big on being in the great outdoors here in the New Forest, and there are loads of adrenaline-filled outdoor activities to try out. Let out your inner lumberjack with axe-throwing deep in the woods with Insight Activities. A brilliant activity to do with friends and family to see who’s got the best aim and strength!  Book on to BattleZone with New Forest Activities – it’s the ultimate laser tag experience and it is guaranteed to get those palms sweating, but it’s also really amusing! Group up and get your own back on the opposing team, hide behind the trees and aim… the excellent sound effects and hit vibrating haptic feedback really gets you in the zone.

Get up high to see wonderful views… then come back down the fun way! Abseiling is the ideal activity for just that – and you can have a go at Foxlease Activities Centre. They also have an amazing zip wire on site too! Or conquer your fear of heights at Avon Tyrrell Outdoor Centre. See how high up you can get on their climbing tower, fly your way across the long zip wire which goes over a large lake, or fight the nerves with a brilliant high ropes course.

Can you complete the full course in the time limit on the aqua park at New Forest Water Park? Take yourself across monkey bars; over hurdles, rockers and rollers; along climbing walls and brave springboards, trampolines and swings, all floating on water! Or, shred the cable at New Forest Water Park! Get the gear on and have a go at wakeboarding or kneeboarding at their cable park. If you’re experienced you could even try to hit a few jumps!
