Teen activities to get them moving and active

Are you tired of looking at your teen lying on the coach, headphones on, not listening to a word you say? Or sitting in their rooms, on their devices as if it’s their life support. The best thing you can do right then is find an amazingly fun place to visit, pack them into the car and get going! Not only will they be outdoors but you’ll also be spending much needed quality time with them. During the teenage years, as much as they’d rather be out with friends, it’s crucial for parents to be a big part of their lives, to engage with them and be supportive in every way.

Fear factor testers!

Action adventure centres offer a range of thrilling activities for older kids. Jungle swings, tight ropes, obstacle courses and giant inflatables will get the adrenaline pumping. Face off with each other in daring challenges to see who survives and who’s the fittest. A great way to get those lazy bones into action.

Canopy tours and tree to tree adventure zip lines are a test of balance and coordination. Secured in place and assisted by professional, trained and friendly staff, there won’t be a dull moment.

Battle zones in real life

Paintball can easily be described as real life video gaming so why wouldn’t it be fun? While it can be painful sometimes it’s so much fun nonetheless. Participants wear full battle regalia including masks and head off with loaded paintball guns. Teams battle it out and often can’t stop with stories of war and shows of scars!

Bike parks

Specially developed bike parks with awesome terrain have been set up for endless hours of riding fun. Take your bikes, helmets and refreshments for a day of wheeling around, up and down daredevil slopes and in and around natural jozi settings. Little ones can also enjoy riding their bikes in specially sectioned off riding areas for toddlers and small kids.

Going under

Cave adventuring is not only exhilarating but educational too. Johannesburg has some pretty cool caves around that will teach you a thing or two about where you’ve been living. Guided tours underground in the dark with torches is a sure way to thrill your kids. Abseil into the deep, dark unknown, ending up some 70 metres underground where you’ll all learn about the ecology of the cave. Take the plunge and try it.

How do these day trip venues for teens and tweens work in terms of cost?

Teen and tween party venues
