Our History & Future
Twinwoods Adventure has been over 60 years in the making. We are humbled by our heritage, proud of our facilties and excited about our future!
Here are some of the site’s first construction photos and a video of the wind tunnels original purpose.
The Twinwoods Adventure site was formerly a military research base, with five wind tunnels used to assist the design and testing of the latest aircraft developments.
Some very noteable creations started their lives at our location. Vertical Take off with planes like the Harrier Jump Jet was born in Bedford with the flying Bedstead, Concorde development and blind landing technology all spearheaded at this former Royal Aircraft Establishment site.
We moved onsite in 2005 to open what was the UK’s first and World’s largest wind tunnel for indoor skydiving – Bodyflight was born.
Since then we have added more activities with the aim to firmly put Bedford on the map a
s a world leader in innovation and excitment in leisure.
We introduced the Flowrider to the UK also and are constantly exploring great new ideas to bring to you.
