Test your 4x4 skills and have a fun day out
Keep your seat up straight, level your wheels, press the gas pedal and....start the adventure of your life time.

Yes, it is here, so close to Sydney, that you can now embark on the best extreme 4 x 4 adventure of your life. Being an adrenalin addict myself, I just could not let this experience pass my way. You can choose your experience on the Adrenalin website as the options vary from just a hot lap in a passenger seat to Intro Drive or Comp Drive package that are currently on special offers.

Once you decided the adventure level you like and booked your dates, head to Colo Heights which would be just 60 km from Windsor Bridge on Putty Road. Get your hand steady on the wheel and your nerves ready as this experience will test even the toughest of the tough.

My friend for the day was monster 4 x 4 "Grumpy" who, despite his tough look, was very responsive to driver commands.

You'll find it unusual to find rear wheels control where you'd usually find your hand break in a normal car, and it'll take you a circle or two to get used to controlling front wheels as per normal driving with your right hand and rear wheels using this control lever in place of the hand break. Sometimes it feels like you are going to overturn or go sideways, however the machine still keeps itself steady on the ground and you find yourself moving forward nice and slow.

As I had an Intro Drive package, I initially tested the first 4 x 4 curcuit, followed by a ride as a passenger while Pro was controlling the car, followed by my own second attempt to concur a different track where all just learned skills were tested again.

Overall, the experience was fun and it tests your 4x4 skills in a controlled environment. Best of all, your partner, friend or significant other can be a passenger on your rides at no cost and can film your scared or bemused facial expressions during this fun experience.
