I have been indoor Go-Karting and loved it, so when we went to WildTracks to try outdoor Go-Karting I was equally excited! I am very competitive when it comes to things like this, it brought out my childish side massively! Whizzing round the tracks without a care in the world and aiming to beat my colleagues. The track was massive; doing a lap actually felt worthwhile instead of it being over and done with within seconds and there was plenty of space to overtake those slow movers! I would definitely recommend WildTracks, it’s not just Go-Karting- there are other activities, it makes a great family day out! Me being the winner also topped off the day…
I will admit I wasn’t looking forward
to the quad biking at all because I had never done anything like it and I don’t drive – I can’t even ride a bicycle, so I thought this was going to be a challenge. However I was so wrong; it was such a fun activity. First of all, you have to go around this practise course to get used to the bike but then we went on a wet and muddy off-road track and it was brilliant. I would definitely do it again and would absolutely recommend to others.
I had been to WildTracks once before – not long before this visit – to experience the 4×4 off road course and the quad bikes. As with my previous visit, the quads didn’t disappoint, and this time was better as it was muddier. The instructor was excellent, taking us over the practice/ obstacle course first to get to know how the bike handled, before taking us out into the wooded area for the real test. The entire course is just taxing enough with water hazards and undulating terrain. Safety is naturally priority for WildTracks, but the quads are robust, and the course offers the right level of difficulty. Very highly recommended.
I was super nervous about taking part in the go-karting activity at WildTracks. I think mainly because it was outside, and the terrain was pretty wet, but also because it was my first time on a proper track. While we were waiting to get into our karts, we watched young children whizzing round and round. They knew every corner and turn on the track. It made me feel more nervous but as soon as I got in my kart and we were signalled to go, there was no time to back out. I can drive, so I thought essentially that’s an advantage and once I was out there, I found that with each lap I grew more confident. I spun out a couple of times but was able to recover. After all, I was racing my colleagues (some more competitive than others) so I couldn’t stop or slow down!
