With summer just around the corner, Action Glen is getting ready for an action packed summer and what better way to celebrate the summer than heading out on Loch Earn on “Big Mable” or trying your hand at water skiing.
With the size, scale and scenery of Loch Earn to play. Get thrashed around on giant inflatables – it’s water-based fun all the way.
What could be more fun than bouncing around on the water in our giant inflatable sofa, Big Mable! Or take on the banana boat, a giant yellow banana that is guaranteed to throw you off. Even if it does take a few hard runs, the question is how long will you cling on for??
If you want more, then we can give you more! More adventure, more adrenaline! Then the Tornado ride is the one for you. This giant inflatable biscuit is towed by our speed boat with it’s main aim to throw you off. Hold on for dear life, this ride is not for the faint hearted.
Love doughnuts?? Then we have a doughnut that will take your breath away. Towed behind our powerboat, this doughnut requires nerves of steel and a strong grip. Taken on in pairs, this experience can be shared and will provide you with speed, splashes, and lift offs and the chance of bumping into your fellow “ringoer”.
If inflatables are not your thing and you fancy something with a bit more style and skill, then we have the answer for you. Ever fancied taking on knee or wake boarding? Or waterskiing? Picture the scene, speeding across the water with the wind in your hair while trying your hardest to remain above the water and not in it! If you have never done it before, then don’t worry our qualified instructors are there to help you find your knees or your feet!
All our watersports are held at Loch Earn, a 20 minute drive away from Action Glen and we provide you with all your safety equipment and instruction from our qualified instructors.
