Enjoy an exhilarating ride, skimming the water’s surface and hovering over the ground with this fantastic Hovercraft Driving Experience.
Driving a hovercraft is like nothing else. The closest description of what it’s like would be driving a car with four flat tyres on ice! You'll be turning the wheel and the hovercraft doesn't seem to start turning until a couple of seconds later. So planning and positioning your hovercraft is vital if you're to make it around the course. It requires balance, good judgement and lots of forward thinking to handle one of these exciting vehicles.
Your day will begin with a detailed safety briefing where you will be shown the controls of the hovercraft. Your instructor will provide a brief ride on the water so you know what to expect. You will spend some time learning to control the craft and tuition will be given until you feel comfortable and safe enough to hit the course yourself.
Then, under the supervision of an instructor, it’s your turn to grab the controls and take charge of the hovercraft.
You will take part in a thrilling relay race with others to prepare for your hot lap! You will be timed to see how long it takes for you to complete your lap both over land and water. Your time will be revealed at the end where you will have a countdown to see who the winner is.
Your day will end with prizes for each participant. You will receive a certificate and the fastest lap winner will receive a prize. (The prizes will vary from a gift voucher to visit again for free, a medal or a fastest pilot mug with Hovercraft Adventures logo on).
This is an unusual but adrenalin-fuelled day out. An experience you won’t forget for a long time to come!
