Top 10 Activities to Try Before the Weather Changes!

With the weather slowly turning a bit miserable as seen in parts of last weekend’s London Bungee, we’ve comprised a Top Ten list of activities to squeeze in before the end of the summer…

With the weather slowly turning into the colder and more miserable winter months, we’ve devised this ‘to-do’ list to help you get out there and enjoying Blighty’s best bits before it is too late for 2010.

Based on customer reviews by you, seasonal availability and the all round awesomeness of each featured experience, we’ve managed to condense our vast entourage of experiences to this cherry picked list for your enjoyment.

So, to get yourself outside enjoying England’s experiences, we recommend:

1) Bungee Jump (5 Star Customer Rating)

We clearly love a good bungee at Extreme Element. Not just because we’re the UK’s best selling Bungee Jump agent, and not just because we have the annual Central London jump… we just love providing bungees as much as you, the public, love leaping! Based up and down the UK, you have a choice of 160ft, 300ft, Bridge, Indoor and much more!

Availability: Year Round – Age Limit: 14 – Price £49-£150

2) Rage Buggy at Silverstone (Recommended)

The Rage Buggy tickets have been selling like hot cakes ever since they first became available with us around 6 months ago. A muddy track on the grounds of Silverstone Circuit plays host to the 650cc 35bhp off road buggies, where you can race against the clock in groups and experience the thrill of off road buggying in style!

The closest thing to a supercar on water; the Powerboats on offer here are designed to alter the shape of your face…for the good!
