Off-road Activities at Rookin House
Escorted Quad Bike Treks
With over 350 acres of uncompromised Cumbrian countryside to explore, our quad treks have it all. From a 20 minute taster trek (8yrs to adult) for those who haven’t done it before and 40 minutes or an hour (16yrs plus) for the more confident and competent driver, we have the terrain from steep banks, forest tracks and river crossings to give you challenging and enjoyable trek. Please visit our website for further details.
Here is the chance to do something different! Suitable for all ages over 4 years. Learn how to operate a JCB excavator - you never know when it might come in handy!
Fully versatile, this 8-wheeled vehicle, skid steer, amphibious all terrain vehicle is roomy enough for 5 adult passengers or 8 small children, minimum age 2yrs, to enjoy the ultimate off-road experience. As the passengers, you will be amazed as you are driven skilfully round natural obstacles including riverbanks and streams in a real-life roller-coaster ride.
The Lake District's only indoor Rally Cross circuit. Sessions organised as 5 practice laps and a series of 10 lap races.
These robust Honda powered karts allow you to put your foot down hard to the floor and test your driving ability to the full! As you get faster the earth track gets slippier and if that's not for you, just take your time.
Our Go Karting is held in the Horse shed, making the experience like driving on ice, the horse muck covers the track to give a slippy surface, fun for all over 14 yrs. Boilersuits and helmets provided.
4x4 Reverse Steer
As the name suggests this vehicle steers in the opposite direction to which you turn the wheel. i.e. you steer right and the car goes left! With this in mind you are asked to steer the car around a course which includes reversing sections to challenge your co-ordination skill and perhaps patience to the amusement of your team.
This is a brilliant team building exercise. Drive a 4x4 vehicle around a course, whilst blindfolded by relying on the instructions given to you by your team members. This is a challenging enjoyable activity.
Dakar 4 x 4 Driving with a difference
You can experience the thrill of driving through mud and water tackling gradients and generally driving in conditions you wouldn't normally dream of. Accompanied at all times by one of our skilled instructors you will soon develop daring off-road skills. 45 minutes per trip for up to 3 people. All drivers must have a valid drivers licence and all passengers must be over 12 years.
Powerturn is a team building activity, a toy on a proper scale! A Powerturn is a twin seater cart driven by two independent engines, with race seats, harnesses and a a full roll cage that can be driven by one or two drivers. The Powerturn looks impressive and with exhilarating wheelies and fast spins and turns, it's guaranteed to bring a smile to everyones face!
