Seven ways to have an action-packed day out in Lanarkshire

You don’t need to travel the world to find adventure, because in Lanarkshire, we’ve got plenty to get the heart racing.

Whether you’re the biggest daredevil or the youngest explorer, these seven activities guarantee an action-packed day out. 

  1. Cloudbusters

There’s no better way to get the adrenaline pumping than by paragliding through the skies of Lanarkshire. 

Whether you’ve flown before are just looking to try something new, Cloudbusters can glide you through all stages of the training so you’ll be soaring in no time. 

  1. Hyper-Trax

It doesn’t matter if you’ve just ditched the training wheels or are on track to be the next Danny MacAskill, Scotland’s first indoor e-bike arena has everything you’ll need for a wheelie good day out. 

Whizzing around on electric bikes, you’ll have the same fast-paced experience of traditional off-road biking without the usual noise and exhaust fumes. 


  1. Eden Leisure Village

With everything from archery to off-road karting Eden Leisure Village is not for the faint hearted. 

Strap yourself into a giant inflatable bubble for a game of five aside zorb-football, or challenge your mates to a competitive game of airsoft, a combat style sport similar to paintball.  

After a day of adventure in the Lanarkshire countryside, you can rest up at one of the onsite Glamping pods. 

  1. Gravit8

Get the heart racing by flipping your way across more than 16,000 square feet of interconnected trampolines.

At Europe’s second largest extreme trampoline park you’ll be able to jump higher than Michael Jordan on the trampoline basketball court or join in with a fast-paced game of dodgeball. 

If you want to keep your feet firmly on the ground, then there’s an onsite laser tag centre. 

  1. Drumpellier Park

Perfect for the smallest adventurer, Drumpellier Park’s newest interactive play space will have plenty to explore.

The ‘Crannog Play Area’ will officially open on Sunday 18th June and families can head along to celebrate the launch.

Inspired by an old iron-age house, the play area not only makes for a fun day out, it encourages the little ones to immerse themselves in the history of the local surroundings.

  1. Playsport East Kilbride

A short drive from Glasgow’s City Centre, you’ll find Scotland’s newest indoor skate park.
