5 activities for everyone in Center Parcs Sherwood Forest

As you know I have recently been to Center Parcs Sherwood Forest. I have a blog post “10 reasons why you should go to Center Parcs” but that did not include the activities that I did. So here are my 5 top things to do in Center Parcs and they are all activities that I did whilst I were there! Make sure to check out my holiday video too!

 

Bike Riding

If you ever go to Center Parcs. You HAVE to hire a bike. This was the first time getting on a bike in years and I loved it. It is so much easier to get around the village as walking can be fun but sometimes tedious if you want to have jam packed days like I did. There are able to lock up your bike in multiple places. Going on a bike ride is so relaxing, there are so many lovely views to see in Sherwood Forest, Center Parcs. A night time bike ride is a MUST.

 

Quad Biking

This was my first time Quad Biking, ever since we booked it I have been really nervous about it and we booked it months in advance. My boyfriend really wanted to do it and I thought it will be a good experience… it was an AMAZING experience. I was honestly so nervous before, the guys that worked there talked through everything. It did take a while to get used to but by the end I didn’t want to come off! Riding through the dirt tracks, dust going everywhere, adrenaline was high. There isn’t a better place to go quad biking than Sherwood Forest.

 

Boats

I think the majority of us have been on a pedalo or something similar. I couldn’t believe how hard it was to pedal, my legs were killing! But, it was so nice just going around the lake looking at the wonderful scenery and nature. Going past ducks, looking above at people flying on the zip line, the sunshine on you, it was lovely. There was loads of boating activities for you to do.

 

Badminton

I first started going to Center Parcs Sherwood Forest with my family when I was very young and this is where my love for badminton started. So going back was pretty amazing for me, full of happy memories. This was the first time playing it in years! Me and Reece had so much fun! It was really great exercise too, I was running all over the place getting hot and sweaty, my arms and legs HURT the following day. Badminton really is good fun, it is located in Jardin Des Sports.

 

Zip Line

Me and Reece did an activity called “Aerial Adventure” and it was a pretty good adventure. The course was high up in the trees and we had to climb across multiple different platforms. There were a few little zip lines through the course but the course ended with a HUGE zipline which went across a big lake. The course leading up to the zip line was fun, nerve-wracking at first but you easily get used to it. It was fun looking at the village from high up. The final zip line at the end was absolutely amazing. Flying across the lake looking down at everyone in their boats was an amazing experience. You are in the air for ages!! We managed to get all the footage on an action camera. 4mins 30 seconds in on our holiday video!

 

All of these activities are a MUST. If you ever go to Center Parcs you have got to do them. Which activity do you think you will like the best? Have you ever done any of these before? Let me know in the comments!

    Looks like you had a great time! I’ve never been to Centre Parcs before but it always looks so nice. I think I’d forget how to ride a bike, it’s been that long since I’ve been on one 😂 I think I’d definitely have to try out that zipwire for sure!

      I was the same, I thought I wouldn’t be able to ride a bike but I soon got the hang of it! Thank you for reading x

    Loved the idea of the zip-lining. Never been to a park like this before. Sounds like a pretty cool place, though.

      You have got to try quad biking!! Thanks for reading x

    Yes bike riding! It’s been so long since I’ve ridden a bike but not to the point where I forgot how to ride one haha, it’s a great way to get from Point A to Point B instead of walking! I’ve never been Quad Biking but it sounds like so much fun; when I went to Greece most tourists were either on Scooters or Buggies!! I wanted to try it but it’s just so hilly on the islands that knowing myself I’d ride straight off the edge haha. I so badly want to try zip-lining as it looks like a lot of fun but I feel like I’d be so nervous leading up to it!!!

      I really did think I would be able to ride one but I got used to it after about 10 mins! Riding a bike when I had been drinking though was a bit mad haha!! It really is so much quicker riding a bike! Yeah I don’t think I would like to do anything if it is hilly! Quad Biking is so much fun, you will love it! I was slightly nervous but more excited! Thanks for reading Sahara, hope you had a fab birthday xx

    Love that there are so many different activities to do out in Center Parcs. Quad Biking looks super exciting! Definitely different than the everyday bike ride. So cool that people can zipline across the lake as well. I know I’d have a blast out there. Wow, that’s a pretty long ride! Glad you enjoyed your time out there! 🙂
