Things to Do

Enjoy a fun day at Longridge Fun Park with the whole family. Here you can ride a four wheel drive truck. Travel through rough terrain, steams, uphill's, downhill's, and ditches. Maximum impact which means it will be a very rough ride. If you have some adrenalin left over from the off road experience, you have to do jet boating. No holds bar here. Think of it as off-roading, but on water. Enjoy high speeds, tight turns, and 360's. You will also see the great scenery that surrounds the park. This is a great stop for the whole family.

Dolphin diving is another activity that cannot be passed up. Swim with dolphins or just watch them migrate near the boat. There are also whales, orcas, and an abundance of marine life that can be seen.  Don't forget the camera because this can be a once in a lifetime experience.
