Get your youngster behind the wheel of a mini Electric Land Rover

Ryan Smith 22nd Jul, 2022

YOUNG visitors to Coombe Abbey Park, near Coventry, will be able to get behind the wheel of some mini Electric Land Rover Defenders.

The fleet – produced in Solihull – will allow youngsters to explore the area’s more natural heritage.

Each car can carry a child and an accompanying adult to supervise or be they can be a back seat driver.

The summer holidays are the perfect opportunity for children aged between two and nine to tackle the off road course and gain their Mini Land Rover licence.

Go-Ape Coventry site manager, Luke Parker said the attraction was proving very popular.

“We have built a very simple course but packed full of features to give you youngsters a feel of the woodland environment and seems to be enjoyed by people whatever their age.”

This attraction is the latest part of a ‘drive’ by No Ordinary Hospitality Management to give park visitors a more varied and family friendly day out.

Other attractions recently implemented include the Abbey Artisan Market and the Sundae Club – a 1950s inspired dessert diner.

The Mini Land Rover rides costs £8.
