For those out there that like to do something adventurous with family, friends or colleagues; those who enjoy action-packed fun days out; but want a bit of inspiration, help is at hand! TOAD (The Online Activity Directory) has been created to help make life easier for the aspiring activity seeker to find nearby activity providers, whether they want to do something a bit different or just find a local go-karting venue.
To celebrate the launch of TOAD and to give a sneak preview of activities listed on the activity directory (some that you may not even know exist), TOAD have compiled an inspiring list of our Top 5 Alternative Activities for 2011.
1) Zap Cats
Zap Cats are lightweight, twin hulled, inflatable catamarans with large outboard engines, capable of pulling in excess of 2G in a turn. Zap Cats can reach speeds of up to 50 mph in as little as 3 Seconds and were originally designed for surf rescue.

Powerturning involves driving a two-seater vehicle operated by only two levers, with the two drive wheels being powered at different speeds by two engines to make the Powerturn ‘turn’. These vehicles can reach speeds in excess of 30mph and are great for spinning on the spot and wheelies.
