Our Activites

Here at Ackers Adventure we offer a plethora of fun and exciting activities for you to enjoy

Disc Golf

We have installed a nine-hole course here at Ackers Adventure which is the first course in Birmingham. The course utilises an area of the centre that was once used as a 4x4 offroad track, we have cleared the paths through lots of undergrowth to create the nine-hole course.

Skiing & Snowboarding

We have floodlit synthetic bristle matting slopes available for use throughout the year. The main slope is approximately 100 metres long and the nursery slope is 30 meters.

Canoeing & Kayaking

Our canoe/kayak sessions can cater for all levels from complete beginners to regular paddlers on the Grand Union Canal which runs through our site.
