Staff Review: Quad Biking Experience
beautiful day it was to wake up to! The sun was pleasantly shining, and bright
blue skies covered Brighton, which made the excitement of today’s activity even
more exhilarating. We travelled down the beautiful Sussex coast towards
Hailsham, a small town located just outside of Eastbourne. This was where today’s
Amazon Events quad biking experience would be held. Amazon Events offer
multiple outdoor activities including quad biking, dirt buggies, archery, shooting, and paintballing, and many more thrills. The parking is easily accessible and situated round the
back of Knockhatch Adventure Park (keep following the route from the entrance
of Knockhatch, and you can’t miss it!).
arrived, we packed up our essentials (don’t forget your sun cream!!) and headed
down the trail towards the Amazon Events site. We were welcomed by an open-plan
field full of activities and tracks ready for our enjoyment! A camouflage-decorated
hut is immediately to your left as you approach the field, where soft drinks,
snacks and burgers are available to order.
lovely young man called Nick greeted us and asked for our booking name. His customer
service was excellent, offering plenty of advice and reassurance (I had never been
on quad bikes before, so this was great!). He then assigned us with crash
helmets and took us over to the quad biking area for a well-presented safety
briefing. My enthusiasm to jump on was continuously growing, and I couldn’t
wait to get going! The instructions to drive the quad were extremely simple:
front throttle for acceleration and two grips, the same as a regular bicycle,
for braking. A small pedal positioned by your right foot could be used as a
handbrake if required.
It was like
no time had passed as we were speeding off into the woods! There were countless
twists, turns and bumpy tracks to keep us all entertained. The trail then heads
into the valleys and open fields which really challenges your ability - try not
to lunge yourself into bushes like I almost did! The experience lasts 60minutes, although a 30-minute alternative is also available. This was the
perfect amount of time to take in the scenic surroundings and get the most out
of the activity. On your route around the site, you’ll see all the other
activities on offer which is brilliant when deciding what next to complete!
we returned our helmets and had a bite to eat before heading home. What a great
day it was, and I can’t wait to try quad biking out again. Our thanks have been passed onto Nick and the team for making this experience a success!
