Popular Ballygawley based adventure centre, Todd’s Leap, has recently been given the accolade of ‘Best Thrill Seeking Activity Provider’ by securing the most votes in the Awards in Association with Surf Mountain.

The winners of the Awards were determined by over 1,200 public votes which were sent in over the month of December through the OutdoorNI Facebook page.

With Todds leap receiving 40% of all votes, owner Benny Hanlon expressed his delight by commenting, “We are delighted to have won the Best Thrillseeking Provider award for the second year running and feel it is a fantastic achievement for our team especially when you reflect upon the three other providers we were up against”.

This popular category created some stiff competition for Todd’s Leap but they were still able to rise to the top. Benny explains why he thinks his business has the winning formula, “Todds Leap has over twenty five thrilling activities to choose from and we are constantly striving to bring innovative new activities to Northern Ireland including our unique 30ft free fall Drop Zone so we have a lot to offer when it comes to getting that adrenaline pumping. We would like to thank all our customers who voted for us and look forward to providing lots of thrills in 2015.”’s Marketing Officer and Award Organiser, Sarah Nelson, explained the awards have grown considerably since their launch four years ago and commented, “To even be nominated let alone to have won is a fantastic achievement. The awards are a great way to showcase the vast array of diverse and exciting outdoor activities available throughout Northern Ireland and the businesses that work hard to make them happen. A big well done is in order for everyone involved”.

As well as recognising events at the top of their game, the Awards also included six other categories in order to highlight the best activity providers, experiences and venues across Northern Ireland.

The sponsor of the awards, Surf Mountain founder Nick Stevenson commented, “We at Surf Mountain have always prided ourselves on being from Northern Ireland so we were delighted to be part of the awards which showcase the vast variety of outdoor opportunities available across from providers such as Todds Leap. All our staff are outdoor enthusiasts and so we were thrilled to have the chance to support local outdoor activity providers, venues and events. All the category winners and nominees should be incredibly proud of their achievements this year.”
