Experience the thrill of freefall – There’s a brand new activity inland from the Costa del Sol called Fly4Real which is causing quite a stir. It is an outdoor skydiving simulator and the first of its kind in Spain and gives visitors the chance to fly on a column of air and feel the sensation of freefall, without jumping from a plane. It’s located at KartCenter Campillos, about an hour inland from Malaga and around an hour and a half from Marbella and Fuengirola. This is the best kart track in the region, so adrenaline junkies can combine flying and karting for an intense day of thrilling fun.
Lego Exhibition Malaga – Lego fans young and old will love the new exhibition running in Malaga until the 22nd of September. This is the biggest Lego exhibition in Europe, with 100 models to admire in 12 different zones and a fun play area too.
