Adventures in nature
Whether your child prefers their adventures adrenalin-fuelled or more laid-back, there is something to satisfy every youngster, from toddlers through to teens at the Christchurch Adventure Park (CAP).
Thrill seekers will get the excitement they desire in the form of a downhill mountain bike ride (coaching and bike hire available) or a zipline, but there are plenty of other options at CAP, and they don’t have to cost a thing.
The younger visitors love burning some energy on the trampoline or searching for the fairy doors hidden throughout the forest, while any age can hone their skills on the free pump track or kids’ loop trail.
Make them feel like they’re on top of the world by taking a ride up the chairlift, or take a family walk on either the free forest loop trail or uphill trail… and then catch the lift down for free!
As well as building their brains, imaginations, stamina and confidence, all of this outside activity will build up a healthy appetite in your young charges. Then it’s time for a break in the Adventure Park Café, featuring a kids menu and plenty of family favourites.
CAP is also the perfect venue for children’s parties, and keep an eye out for the popular school holiday programmes, which focus on fun with a sense of adventure for beginners through to experienced riders.
