Get ready for a ride that’ll have your heart racing and your stomach flipping! Strap in and hold on tight as you hop aboard the Groundshuttle. Brace yourself for a teeth-rattling, hair-raising spin around our specially crafted course.

If you take on Groundshuttle, you’ll be seated in a custom-designed, purpose-built carriage right at the front of a JCB Telehandler. As the telehandler powers forward, you’ll experience a thrill like no other. Get ready to rock, roll, and bounce over the ridges and troughs carved into the ground.

Hold onto your hats and keep those arms and legs inside the fun zone, because this is one experience that’s going to give you the ride of your life. Some folks might cling on for dear life, while others are all about throwing their arms up in the air and giving a hearty wave to friends and family as they zoom by. What’s your style going to be?
