As you know, we love family days out especially when it can please all of our children! With children aged 6, 9 and 13 it can be difficult to find somewhere where they will all enjoy, however we are lucky that they all like similar experiences and anything that is physical and fun! Aztec Adventure invited us along to review their activities in both their Evesham site called Aztec Adventure Lost Valley, as well as they site over at Lower Moor which is only about a 10 minute drive away.
We are also really pleased to share a discount code for our readers which is only valid until the end of September 2023! So read on to find out what we got up to and access to our code!
Aztec Adventure is Midlands based, spread across various sites offering activities for all the family. Their most recent site is The Lost Valley in Evesham which is on a wonderful shopping outdoor centre and offers both a high ropes experience as well as their new Adventure Golf course which opened Easter 2023!
They offer an extensive list of attractions across their many sites including aerial adventure, lake water sports and an indoor climbing wall; there really is so much to do. But where are the sites?
As I mentioned, Aztec Adventure (who was recently awarded ‘Small Visitor Attraction of the Year’) has four locations based in Worcestershire, offering a variety of adult and children activities, courses and adventures. These are:
– Evesham – The Lost Valley
– Evesham – Evesham Leisure Centre
– Lower Moor
– Upton Warren

Our Mission Statement:
‘To delight our customers every time by delivering a quality, positive and engaging experience providing memories that last a lifetime.’
For the purpose of this article, we were visiting two sites during our family day out starting with The Lost Valley. This is where we were taking part in the aerial adventure and Adventure Golf.
As soon as you walk into The Lost Valley, you can see the high ropes ahead as it is set on a slight hill. As you can imagine, the kids couldn’t wait to get stuck in! As we wondered up to the front desk to check in, I thought how beautiful the surrounding areas looked, with the Evesham Trainline passing by, people walking their dogs and a clean environment!
My kids are pretty fearless when it comes to tackling adventures. Unfortunately our youngest who is 6 was too young to try out the aerial adventure, but our other two were keen to get geared up for their go.
We were greeted with the kindest women on reception who not only checked us in but also then sorted out our children into their harnesses. She chatted away to them and in particular to my daughter who, whilst is super brave, seemed a little nervous! The member of staff ran through their safety procedures of how to hook on, how many people to a post and general advice on how to get around the course. She also made a few jokes and reassured my daughter which was really kind and thoughtful! There was also a mini safety circuit where the staff member demonstrated how to attach yourself – super helpful!
Once briefed, both of them entered the aerial high ropes course to begin their adventure! I must say, it looked thrilling and I wish I had also booked on to the course (but there is always next time!)
As they made their way along the course, tackling tightropes, stepping stone bridges and a zip line, we wandered along the path to keep an eye on them and capture some of their moments on the course. I loved how fresh and green the place is, with the adventure golf course set beneath the high ropes course.
The course allows you to go twice or I imagine until your hour runs out. As it happens it took 50 minutes to complete the course, with my eldest completing it slightly quicker due to being super speedy and finding it easier to navigate. I loved how the member of staff who booked us in kept popping along to see how the kids were getting on!
After a fun hour of high ropes we were all then booked into the Adventure Golf, a fun themed 18 hole crazy golf course! My youngest was particularly excited for this as he had waited so patiently for his siblings to do the Aerial Adventure Course.
After collecting our score card, putters and golf balls we made our way to the first hole. I have and always will love a crazy golf course. For as long as I can remember, I have visited them during our holidays to America when I was a child and I just love the whole concept of competing as a family, having fun and if the course is themed, then that’s a bonus.
And this Adventure Golf does not disappoint. With the sun shining it almost felt like we were on holiday! I particularly loved the Aztec Temple, crashed aeroplane and the wooden bridge; all these aspects made the experience even more immersive and exciting!
I was very pleased that I was the only family member to get a hole in one!
– If participating in the aerial adventure course, wear trainers/closed shoes
– Sign waivers prior to attending to save time
– There are no toilets on site; the nearest are within the shopping centre a couple of minutes walk away
– There is a coffee shop nearby where you can get a drink
– There is a huge Teepee if you are spectating and want to go indoors/need shade
– There are plenty of picnic tables if you wish to bring a picnic
– A short walk away is a lovely play area which you can use! You’ll see it when your are on the course
What stuck out for me the most was the staff and how friendly and eager they were to let us experience a great day. They offered words of encouragement and even remembered the children’s names throughout the morning here which is a lovely touch. I could see another child who was really struggling on the course and I could hear all of the staff member’s cheering the child on when they managed to pass through a challenging area.
The Aerial Adventure course was brilliant for the older two. I would say that it was more of a challenge for my 9 year old daughter, purely for the fact that our 13 year old has had more experience such as the courses at Go Ape. Having said that he did enjoy the course. I would say, this course is perfect for a beginner of any age as whilst it is high, it isn’t too high and offers some fun and tricky challenges to make this course fun!
We all loved the Adventure Golf. There was nothing to fault. I think I can say it is one of my favourite crazy golf courses we have experienced! I would suggest that if you are visiting to do either of the activities, I would suggest to get there on one of the earlier time slots. We arrived at 10.15am and pretty much had the place to ourselves. As the morning went on, the activities did get busier.
After a quick play on the play area and a picnic in the sunshine we then jumped in the car and headed a few miles down the road to Lower Moor. This is located on a holiday estate and all the activities are based on the lake, which is just stunning. Some of the activities you can do are:
– Rowing boats
– Pedal Boats
– Kayaking (single or double)
We had decided to book two double kayaks with a parent in each with the two younger children then a single for our eldest. As soon as we arrived we headed into reception where we were offered wetsuits (you do not have to wear these) and got zipped up into our life vests, which were surprisingly comfortable.
For me, this activity was going out of my comfort zone and whilst I wasn’t nervous, it is not something that I would normally choose to do. But as soon as we got into our Kayaks, supported by the lovely staff member who pushed us out on to the water, I felt so relaxed and loved the experience. This was also a new experience for all three of my children. My eldest who had his own kayak took to it like a fish to water and was speeding his way across the lake having mastered the oar and movement very easily.
As we had arrived early, we got on the lake slightly earlier than planned so had over an hour to enjoy the kayaks. We did do a swap where our daughter tried out the single kayak and whilst she was nervous to do this, she was encouraged by the staff member and congratulated when she attempted the challenge of heading out to the buoy and back to shore.
After our experience on the lake ended and we got changed into dry clothes, we enjoyed a well deserved ice cream from reception in the sun.
– Bring a change of clothes
– There are showers, toilets and lockers available to use free of charge
– You could go bare foot whilst on the lake but it is advised to wear old trainers unless your paddleboarding then you’ll be barefoot
– There is coffee machine and ice cream and cold drinks sold in reception
– Take towels – you make need them!
– There are a few picnic tables. The grass was covered in geese poop so I would avoid bringing a blanket
Overall we loved this experience and it was one that all three children were excited for. This is a perfect family activity and really suited our teenager. Once we had finished, all three asked to have a go at paddle boarding next, after all of us had watched others on the lake enjoy this activity. I am really pleased we tried out this activity together and I would highly recommended, especially as it felt like something different and was new to us!
Thank you so much for following our journey visiting Aztec Adventure. As promised, we have a huge saving of 20% off on all activities until the end of September 2023! To make use of this, please use the code
