“Awesome for Americans and Scotsmen alike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011 via mobile

Dropped by while visiting good friends in the area. We were on vacation near by for the new year. Our crew of 2 dads and one each 8, 11, and 13 year-old boys got their fill go carting, shooting, and quad biking. Staff was super and showed great humor in the chill as the flurries came down. Boys and dads alike were thrilled with the activity as well as the hot chocolate, burgers, and sausage sandwiches that followed.
Equipment was well maintained, and safety was obviously a top priority for the staff.
Our day was the 'family sampler' where you get to choose 3 activities.
Suffice it to say, a great time was had by all!

“Excellent quad biking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

3 of us went quad biking and it was excellent, we started off just going around the field and we all thought this was as adventourous as it was going to get but then we went off into the forest and around their 4x4 driving track, it was pretty hard going, huge boulders, long muddy tracks for sliding and massive puddles - excellent fun!
Probably helped that it was winter and there had been a lot of rain!
Went to the coffee shop for some lunch after which was pretty good too.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

As a group of friends we were looking for a selection of activities for an afternoon, and these were catered for in the form of Karting, 4X4, quads and clay pigeon shooting....
All commented on the good choice of venue and would go again..
And the Aberdeen Angus Burgers will become legendary!

“Great First Time Experience on Quad Bikes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

I booked an hour Quad Biking at Deeside for my husband and 4 friends, we all had a great time with excellent tuition before we ventured out. Advise you to take Boots and Waterproofs and ideally your own helmet if you have one - they are supplied though so not a priority. Not really able to take a large camera on the bike so a mobile in your pocket is handy ! I would definately go back again !!!
