The Verdict

Been paintballing? Done the new VR shooters? Climbed every rock wall in Victoria? We’ve got a new weekend adventure for you and the gang. It involves buggies, obstacle courses, mud, tyres and you living out your childhood dreams of being a rally car champion.

The place is called Wild Buggy, and it’s down in Heatherton, just near Moorabbin DFO.

Wild Buggy is basically go-karting with attitude. Each driver is given command of a Wild Buggy Tomcar—a welded steel chassis with four wheels that was designed to get parachuted out of helicopters.

Your job is to navigate this vehicle over the obstacle course as fast as you jolly well can. There’s jumps, 45-degree climbs, water obstacles, rocks, logs and a giant, man-crushing boulder chasing you the whole way (not really—but that’d be pretty cool).

To qualify you have to be aged somewhere between 7 and 103 (legit, that’s the cut-off). Kids can jump behind the wheel—they just get a supervisor in the passenger seat with their own set of controls. It’s a bit like when you were a learner and the instructor had to break when you missed those Give Way signs. Adults, all you need is a driver's licence (P-Plates will suffice).

You can get some serious speed up in these little guys, but Wild Buggy are also big on safety. You’re strapped in with a 4-point harness, there’s a helmet on your noggin’, and the Tomcars themselves are very hard to roll (seriously, we’ve tried).

Once you’ve torn up the course, there’s a BBQ for lunches (BYO stuff) or you can grab a cold drink on-site. Want our advice though? There’s a Maccas about 200m know what to do next.
