Top activities for teenagers

Body Content

Organising a family holiday in the UK with teenagers can be a tricky task when you’re trying to please everyone. Luckily, Center Parcs has plenty of activities for all ages, including teenagers. From thrilling adrenaline-fuelled adventures to calm and creative sessions, solo activities to activities for the whole family, indoor or outdoor, you can keep everyone entertained all day long.


Here are our top activities for teenagers:

Aerial Adventure

It’s a jungle out there… and it’s calling all daredevils to come and enjoy its exhilarating challenge. Our qualified instructors will securely fasten you into a safety harness, then it’s over to you to swing through the trees, bravely conquer our aerial rope course and finish with a thrilling descent on our zip wire.

Laser Combat

It’s all about stealth and covert operations as you sneak silently through the forest, manoeuvring around obstacles and taking cover behind trees as you evade your enemies. Armed with laser guns and wearing targets, it’s shoot or be shot. Now the Laser Combat arena is even more challenging, with barricades to breach and buildings to conquer.

Quad Bike Safari

Get ready for fast-paced thrills and adrenaline-fuelled excitement. First you'll get to grips with handling your quad bike in a safe and controlled way. Then you'll get to try out your skills as you take on the all-terrain challenges of our purpose-built track, testing your mettle and your driving prowess under the supervision of a qualified instructor.

The Drop Jump

Not for the fainthearted, The Drop puts your courage to the test as you take a leap of faith and land safely on a giant inflatable air bag. You’ll work your way up the Tower, with three platforms to choose from: 4.5m, 7m and 10m. Participants aged 14 and over will have the opportunity to experience 1 jump at 4.5m, 1 at 7m, and 2 at 10m, moving up a level after each successful jump.

Available at Woburn and Elveden Forest.

Segway Experience

Try something new as you step aboard a futuristic Segway and glide around the village in style. You’ll start off on the practice track before heading off to explore the village and even testing your skills on our special off-road track, featuring rumble strips, a seesaw and more.


Whether you’re an experienced canoeist or you’d just like to dip your toe into our watersports, our single and double kayaks are a great way to experience the rush of taking to the open water, building your confidence as you navigate your way around our lake and enjoy all the wonderful scenery our forest has to offer.

Pottery Painting

Our Pottery Painting Studio is a great place for the whole family to enjoy an activity together and a creative outlet for teenagers. Choose your favourite piece of pottery from our huge range when you arrive, then paint it any way you like. From a simple mug to a masterpiece on a fruit bowl, delicate and dainty or big and bold… the choice is yours. We’ll professionally glaze and fire it overnight, ready for you to take away the next day.
