If you’re an adventurous bride looking for the perfect activity to get both yours and your bridesmaids' adrenaline pumping at your bachelorette before you walk down the aisle, we have amazing activities that will no doubt blow your hair back. Take a look:
Aquaventure Water Park in Dubai, UAE
The perfect place to spend your bachelorette to cool off during a hot day, Dubai Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark offers the perfect balance of relaxation and thrill rides you won’t find anywhere else. You and your bridesmaids can get your adrenaline pumping with their record breaking rides and slides, get close to a sharks and rays, and take a moment to get your breath back by relaxing along their 700-metres of pristine private beach. Here, you can really feed your wild side at The Tower of Poseidon where you can ride the monstrous Aquaconda – the world’s largest water slide, experience weightlessness on the Zoomerango and test your nerves on Poseidon’s revenge. Lastly, to test how wild you really are, you can take the plunge on the Leap of faith at The Tower of Neptune, a nine story high mega-slide with a near-vertical drop.
Zip-Lining in Cape Town, Africa
If you want to take to the skies, zip-lining will give you a whole new perspective as you fly over a canyon on one of the longest aerial cable course in Africa. Located on the private Silvermist Wine Estate, it’s only 20 minutes away from Cape Town’s CBD, means that you and your bridesmaids won’t have to venture far from the city to enjoy this thrill. The whole course only takes two hours – meaning there is plenty of time to recover from this heart-stopping experience on the beach with a cocktail or two – but those who take part will need to be relatively fit as there is some climbing involved to get to the highest and longest cable.
Go Carting at The Track, Missouri
“The Track” in Missouri is home to 14 different track, each a different difficulty, and includes three unique, high-rise go-cart tracks – yes, you read that right! You will experience elevation, spiralling, twisting and turning on the 4-story track “Heavy Metal High-Rise” made out of steel and concrete, and on their two wooden race tracks, “Wild Woody” and “The Lumber Jack”. Nothing will quite blow your hair back like strapping on your seat belt and racing your girlfriends round their many, exciting tracks.
Disneyland Park, Paris
With amazing attractions, entertainment, dining options and shows to indulge in, Disneyland Park is the ideal place to spend your bachelorette. Get lost on Space Mountain: Mission 2, take a ride on Big Thunder Mountain (the runaway train), and visit Sleeping Beauty’s castle, before grabbing something delicious to eat at one of the many restaurants scattered across the theme park, and ending your day off by watching an entertaining show. There are five incredible lands to explore, and you can watch the firework and light displays over Sleeping Beauty Castle – truly magical!
