21st – 25th February 2024


This is a driving experience for children. Each mini Land Rover holds 1 driver, 5-9 years-old (inclusive) & 1 passenger, 2-4 years-old (inclusive). Strictly no adults or children over 9 years-old are allowed to drive on or in the vehicles. Please do not book one car for 2 children of driving age – they are not allowed to share driving – they will require a car each.

Mini Off-Rovers are bringing their mini Land Rover driving experiences for children back to Capesthorne Hall for February half-term 2024!

We are delighted to offer families the opportunity to take one of our mini Land Rovers out around the Capesthorne Estate to explore their woodland and wider parkland, having their young drivers handle a mini vehicle – designed specifically with them in mind – whilst they accompany them, providing essential constant adult supervision.

Driving on this off-road experience, children will have their driving skills put to the test as they manoeuvre their way through the trees, around the bends, across the fieldsand maybe even passed the grazing sheep!

This experience offers children an unrivalled level of freedom and independence as they drive on our off-road route, and parents both the opportunity to witness their child in the driving seat and a thoroughly enjoyable walk around this naturally stunning landscape. It is an experience the whole family find thrilling!

To add to their delight, during half-term, we shall giving our young guests a very souvenir to take home! After a short practice and satisfactory demonstration of driving ability, together with a responsible adult(s), they'll begin their experience and drive the route we have planned for you around the estate, which is challenging and exciting. Upon completion, having demonstrated their awesome ability, they'll receive their own well-earned personalised Mini Off-Rovers driver's licence! This realistic-looking licence will detail their name, D.O.B and unique driver's licence number. This is included in the cost of the experience.

Each driving experience is 30 minutes long, but we know you'll want to spend longer than that at this fantastic venue so we are inviting you to spend the day with us, and to make that day fun-filled, there will be more activities for your child to enjoy. We are considering several at this time and will share once they are confirmed.

Other Activities
To be confirmed

Important information – PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING.
By booking, you are confirming you have read the Activity Participation Agreement and read and agree to the following:
Duration of experience: 30 minutes + practice time

The cost of your experience includes entry for up to 2 adults and 2 children (driver + younger sibling) into the estate. Normally entry fee for a family of four is currently £25 (family ticket)

Siblings between and including the ages 2-4years, are once again welcome to ride as a passenger for free.

There must be one adult to supervise each vehicle in your booking.

The accompanying adult must be able to keep-up with the vehicle at all times to provide constant supervision and to be able to assistance if needs be. The accompanying adult must be able to manage a 30 minute fast-paced walk (very fast in places) in order to do so. This will mean that it may not be appropriate for one adult to bring a child of driving age plus younger siblings that require papooses/prams/pushchairs, as this will inhibit them from being able to keep-up with the vehicle. Younger siblings may also prove a distraction from being able to supervise adequately.

We shall refuse to allow a drive to commence if they do not have the appropriate level of adult supervision. No refunds will be given in these circumstances.

It may be inappropriate to bring along some breeds of dog that are not able to manage a fast-paced walk.

We have set the minimum driving age at 5 years old. Each vehicle weighs 200kg and unlike other vehicles of a similar nature that children may be used to driving, such as quad bikes, these vehicles are not power assisted, so as well as being heavy, they are tough to steer. Each child will therefore be required to complete a short driving practice – allowing us to assess their capability at handling the vehicle. By age 5 years, most children can manage them, but height, strength, confidence, concentration and awareness also factor in their ability to be able to drive safely – both to themselves and others. During the practice, children will have to, for example, demonstrate that they can follow our instruction, drive at a steady pace, be able to navigate around static objects and do an emergency stop. It is solely the decision of Mini Off-Rovers staff as to whether the child has completed the practice satisfactorily and is thus deemed capable of safely completing this experience. A driving practice will take place for a maximum of 10 mins. Sometimes a longer practice will result in a satisfactory demonstration of driving ability but this is not possible due to the timed-slots nature of this event.

No refunds will be given if a child cannot complete a satisfactory demonstration of skill during their allocated 10 min driving practice, and therefore cannot complete the experience.

No adults or children above the maximum driving age are allowed to sit in or on the vehicle, completely or incompletely, at any time.

No auto shut-off button is distributed to supervising adults during this event; a child has to be deemed safe to drive independently in order to drive on this experience.

A parent will be required to sign a copy of our Activity Participation Agreement and a Liability Waiver before the experience commences. Please read these prior to booking. Links to both can be on our Home Page.

If staff witness behaviour that is not compliant with the Activity Participation Agreement, Mini Off-Rovers will stop the experience with immediate effect. No refunds will be given in these circumstances.

In line with our T&Cs, no refunds shall be given for whatever reason 13 days or less prior to the event.

Gift vouchers may be redeemed against this event
