A new destination for all-action holidays
As part of Haven’s Parks of the Future, which has seen over £130 million invested across parks, six incredible Adventure Villages are now open, with three more planned for 2023.
These state-of-the-art facilities provide fun for all the family, with Aerial Adventures (as well as Mini Aerial Adventures for younger holidaymakers aged 2+), The Jump - a six metre fall onto a massive airbag, multiple sporting activities and even a Bark Yard obstacle course for dogs to join in the fun. (Facilities vary by park).
These top-of-the-range courses are custom built for Haven and offer views of each park like you’ve never seen before – there’s truly nothing quite like it.
New Adventure Villages - coming soon
A brand new Adventure Village completes the activities on offer at Burnham-on-Sea. There'll be new activities, entertainment on the new outdoor stage and you won't go thirsty or hungry with the addition of Seaside Treats and the Box Bar.
We’re also excited to be adding an Aerial Adventure and outdoor stage to Weymouth Bay during 2023 to complete the Adventure Village! It's going to be a great place to make the most of the summer sun with all the family.

It's easy to find The Jump in the Adventure Village, just follow the sounds of encouragement and cheers! The atmosphere around the Jump is amazing, as holidaymakers and owners cheer on anyone taking part. It certainly takes a good amount of bravery to step off the 6 metre-high platform and onto the massive air bag below, but once you've experienced the thrill from the free fall, you'll want to do it again and again.
The Jump is available in Adventure Villages at:
Climbing is an important skill for any would-be explorers and adventurers! And nothing matches the buzz you'll feel once you reach the top.
The type of walls in our Adventure Villages vary from park to park. We have funky bright multi-walls at Golden Sands and Allhallows, with lots of different shaped hand holds for the ultimate challenge. At Craig Tara, there's the Crazy Climber which is home to multiple indoor walls including a race wall to see how fast you can climb. The wall at Thorpe Park has three ropes in a row, so you can see if you're climbing faster than your family. Whatever wall you you try, you'll walk away with a good memory and a sense of satisfaction.
Several more Haven parks feature standalone climbing walls - you can find out more here.

If you have a head for heights then the Aerial Adventures at our Adventure Villages should be on your holiday activity wish list. They're a course set high above the ground with multiple obstacles that you have to conquer.
All of our Aerial Adventures are as individual as our parks, including:
Thorpe Park's Aerial Adventure Max - Haven's biggest with two storeys of obstacles
Craig Tara's Aerial Adventure - an indoor course, perfect for all weather
Hafan y Mor Aerial Adventure - set amongst the trees with a zip line across the lake
Mini Aerial Adventures - A low rope version for tots 2+, with obstacles spaced for little legs.
Aerial Adventures and Mini Aerial Adventures are available at:
Eat, drink and be entertained
There's lots of action on the Adventure Village to work up an appetite, so the Seaside Treats outlet is in the perfect spot, just a few steps away from most activities, making it easy to top up falling energy levels, or reward bravery on The Jump. Thirsts are quenched by the convenient Box Bar, or a Costa Coffee from Seaside Treats.
When you need to rest your legs, make a pit stop at the outdoor stage and let us entertain you. Sit back in the sun and watch a performance from the fabulous on-park singer, catch a show from a terrific visiting act or there might be a singalong movie on the big LED screen to watch.

Home of activities
There are activities galore at the Adventure Village. The multi-games area hosts activities such as Junior Segways and Football Kickabout, and can be used by families in-between scheduled activities for family penalty shoot-outs or a friendly game of cricket.
The Sports Range can also be found here, and it's where you'll find our Archery Coaching, Mini Archery and Target Shooting, all under a roof to keep you dry and toasty on rainy days.
Bikes and karts can be hired from the Adventure Village, and some villages have off-roader tracks for 4x4 fun or a six-wheeled tank off-roader experience.
With play areas too, the villages are truly a hive of activity.
Activities for your furry family
All the family can enjoy the Adventure Village - including your four-legged friends! The Bark Yard awaits your dog with tunnels, ramps and platforms to leap, balance and run through. You could even create an agility routine and pretend you're at Crufts! There are plenty of obstacles, perfect for playful pooches, and it's a lovely, safe area for dogs to stretch their legs.

Where to find an Adventure Village
Our original Adventure Village can be found at Craig Tara in Scotland, and it has all-weather indoor, and outdoor facilities including The Drop and Adrena-Line.
At Caister-on-Sea, the awesome Aerial Adventure adds height to the level landscape of Norfolk and the off-roader track has kids giggling on the ground. In North Wales, Hafan y Mor's Adventure Village has a brilliant sand play area, and an Aerial Adventure which winds through the trees and over the people cruising the lake on the pedalos below.
Golden Sands in Lincolnshire has an Adventure Village with amazing activities and an outdoor stage to rival the stunning beach next to the park. The Adventure Village in Allhallows in Kent, has the Thames Estuary as its backdrop, and the range of activities is as fabulous as the views.
If you're looking for the ultimate challenge, then head to Thorpe Park in Lincolnshire, home to the thrilling Aerial Adventure Max, Haven's only double-storey aerial course.
