    Great fun with older kids or friends
    Took part in rifle shooting and axe / knife throwing. It was overall well coordinated and led by an enthusiastic activity lead. A great way to spend a couple of hours - I’d recommend it.

    A great way to spend a couple of hours
    What a fantastic experience. We did two activities Axe throwing and Clay Pigeon shooting. The instructors Ben (axe throwing) and Joe (I think) clay shooting were excellent . Both extremely knowledgeable and put us all at ease with there laid back and funny manner. We all had so much fun. What an experience. Don’t think about going just go,you will not be disappointed

    Excellent axe throwing with Ben
    We went axe throwing for my birthday had a brilliant time with Ben who was so good and made it all fun. Only me and my husband there ( but it was a Wednesday morning) so we had personal tuition we felt very honoured. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely go back and try something else.

    Axe throwing at the Yorkshire Activity Centre
    I took my kids (16, 15 and 14) for an afternoon of Axe Throwing at the Yorkshire Activity Centre. I can honestly say it is amazing fun and Ben the instructor made our hour highly enjoyable. There are a variety of axes that can be used and we played a few different games throughout the session. We all achieved some level of success so everybody was smiling by the end. It is a friendly and safe environment and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommend.

    Fab and fun!
    Fab and fun! We did a double up with axe throwing and then quad biking. The instruction was clear without being patronising. Joe ensured we all had fun and responded well to each of the group, learning names quickly. Would highly recommend.

    Great quad biking experience
    We visit for the quad biking, this was when the whether was cold and it was boggy! This did not effect the experience at all as we had lots of fun driving round in the mud. Staff member was joe and he was great. Would recommend this to anyone who’s after son thrills

    Summer Team Event
    We held our Summer Team Event at the Yorkshire Activity Centre - what an amazing afternoon. Ben and his team were great providing clear instruction and safety advice for each activity and we had plenty of laughs throughout too. We did Quads, Clays, Rifle, Cross bow and a finale with all the teams axe throwing ... it just went too quick! Highly recommend for team awaydays - get yourselves booked in.

    Highly recommended activity centre
    Our second visit to YAC and won’t be our last! This visit was clay pigeon and the last was air rifle shooting. Great, informative instructors on both occasions, felt very welcome & valued and loved how spacious it is. Thank you to all.

    Fantastic experience.
    Great experience. My girlfriend had an advantage in that she's so hot that when she fired the air rifle the pellets became molten balls of lead hurtling towards the targets. The smile on her face after was great to see. The instructors were very welcoming and safety conscious. We felt safe and in very enthusiastic hands. Would recommend.

Great corporate/team building day out, we did the archery, axe throwing and rifle shooting. All the team enjoyed the activities. The host was a top bloke, had some banter. We will certainly be going back to do more. Many thanks again for a great day.

Ten of us visited the Yorkshire Activity Centre whilst staying in York for a weekend and had great fun doing both Rifle Shooting and Crossbows. Everyone who took part thoroughly loved the experience and were very impressed with the friendly and professional way in which the group was looked after. Both instructors helped the group to settle and were very patient!! The organised competitions went down well and brought out the competitiveness within the group but in a good way and to recommend this place is very easy.

Activities were great fun which was in part due to our instructor Joe. He was professional but good fun and we had a great laugh. We done crossbow and axe throwing and really enjoyed them both.
Facilities are ok but basic.

Went for a friend's stag do, was great fun! Had lots of fun clay pigeon shooting, and learning how to throw an axe! Showed off a bit during the archery and crossbow shooting parts, but I highly enjoyed it and would go again!

A great experience of Clay Pigeon shooting. Great instruction and a good way to have an experience of this activity. Ben was a calm and engaging instructor. I'd definitely recommend having a go at this. Although we didn't do any of the other activities, Ben walked us through them and how they work - thank you.

We (mother and daughter) 'had a go' at shooting 30 clays. Ben was good humoured, knowledgable, pitched the session at just the right level, answered our questions however daft and was thoroughly encouraging. The only thing I would change is perhaps the choice of a couple of different guns shapes perhaps for fit - but given this was 'have a go' rather than full lesson that is perhaps fair enough. We will definitely be back and would thoroughly recommend. Thanks Ben!

Me and the hubby had a great time doing the archery, air rifle shooting and axe throwing. Our instructor, Joe, was friendly, put us at ease and explained how to do each activity supporting us as to how we could improve. We had a laugh and it was something different to do together. I'd definitely do it again and recommend it to others.

We came as a family of four with two teenage sons. Joe was an entertaining staff member who was welcoming and made the whole experience enjoyable. We chose the AAA package and we all thoroughly enjoyed it all
