Blacklight Adventure Zone

Adventure that the whole family can enjoy.

If you're looking for a completely new experience, then come and try the Blacklight Adventure Zone at Ards Blair Mayne. 

This is a first for the UK with three activities, golf, climbing walls and high ropes, all available under one roof in Blacklight. 

Test your golfing skills, climb twelve different wall challenges or test your head for heights on the high ropes - and the great thing is, the whole family can take part!


Blacklight Adventure Golf

Everyone can test their golfing skills to the limit in the Blacklight Adventure Golf. This is an incredible experience for anyone who likes to play mini golf, except this time you're playing 18 luminous holes in a blacked-out space, surrounded by amazing 3-D images that recreate a magical underwater seascape.

It's suitable for all ages and everyone can just turn up and play!
