After a super successful year in 2018 with the launch of Ballyhass Coachford Aquapark, we are excited to announce the second stage of our development plan. It begins with our custom designed school tour programme. In our centre, in Mallow, we have been delivering school tours for the last 10 years and have built our reputation on the back of these. In Mallow, the success of our school tour was based on the variety of Land, Water and Height activities guaranteed in every school tour. This was so popular that the school tour season was completely sold out for the last three seasons. Our aspirations for Coachford are in the same direction, offering an amazing outdoor experience with varied land and water based. With this in mind, we have been hard at work since the end of last season developing our new Multi-activity Zones! 4 Amazing sections of the site that are themed, 1. to help you pick the most appropriate activities for your group and 2. in order to provide the best possible experience. All these zones will be instructor lead and perfectly suitable for all abilities. Our instructors are experts in tailoring packages to the needs of each group.
Our new wild zone is based out of our custom built wilderness village. Explore our beautiful island where shelter & fire building, navigation, leave no trace and stream-scapes will all be part of every session. Cook over an open fire enjoy a hot chocolate with your own filtered water and bring out your inner Bear Grylls in a group or during one of our public sessions during the summer.
|For the Robin Hoods among you, our indoor target ranges are where you will excel. An all-weather archery range alongside a brand new Axe throwing range will keep all ages entertained. We will be hosting axe throwing leagues throughout the season. But for groups, you will find who the champion is before you leave. Guaranteed to bring the competition into any group through mini-games and competitions, have you got what it takes? Axe throwing is ideal for TY's and up while the younger groups will get some additional target games to try their luck at.|
|Our Challenge zone is for the active ones with lots of energy to burn. In 2019 we will be launching our Challenge Course. A 60 participant obstacle course that will have levels for all abilities. Take on the giant swing, navigate the balance beams, crawl through the triple threat tunnels and last but not least see if you can conquer the ninja wall. Three different difficulty levels and our instructors on hand to set the challenges this one can be brilliant team building or have the group try and beat the course record. Not just an obstacle course though, we also have a 10m high climbing wall for you to conquer. An amazing combination with our Water Zone.|
|Ballyhass Coachford is the centre of the Lee Valley on the banks of the Inniscarra lake and we couldn't be more excited to lead your explorations of it. Our school tours are in for a treat we have designed our main School tour package around the water. Including a full half day (2.5 hours) of water time. They will be guaranteed the ever popular Aquapark and a kayak tour of the lake. This package has our most water time ever on a school tour product. Combine this with one of our other amazing zones and we are confident this will be one of the most popular school tours in the country. Make sure you book in fast before all the popular dates are gone.|
