Get strapped into the Groundshuttle rides carriage and be taken for a teeth-rattling, stomach-churning spin around the specially configured course. Feel yourself being pitched and tossed about in the custom-designed, purpose-built carriage mounted on the front of a JCB Telehandler as it rocks and rolls over the ridges and troughs gouged into the ground.

Some cling on for “dear life”! Others throw their arms up in the air and wave to friends and family as they go rumbling by! Which will you do?


The Groundshuttle is suitable for any visitor over the height of 100cm, including adults, OAPs or children. Should visitors not reach the stated height, they unfortunately cannot participate in this activity.

If you suffer from cardiac, circulatory or spinal problems it is strongly advised to avoid this activity. Due to the nature of this ride, we would strongly advise against pregnant visitors participating.
