This hovercraft experience gets you in the driver's seat of one of these futuristic and fun machines. Hovercraft driving is a whole new type of vehicle control, unlike any type of driving you'll ever have experienced! Hovercraft work by moving around on a cushion of air, created by high-pressure jets hidden beneath the 'skirt' of the craft.

The kind of movement that you'll experience when you drive a hovercraft is unforgettable. You'll experience the feeling of sliding, gliding, and drifting over mud, sand, grass, earth - and even water! yes, hovercraft are amphibious vehicles, meaning they can be driven on land or water! During this hovercraft driving session, you will move around a purpose-built course with specially placed posts and obstacles.

Following a safety briefing and a demonstration, you'll learn the basics of flying these exciting machines (under supervision) - and quickly learn that it's not as easy as the instructors make it look! You then move on to the BP challenge, a series of obstacles to practice your new found skills. Having mastered control of your craft, you will move to the Hover Cross track - flying the hovercraft over land and water around our track in a series of pursuit and relay races against other hovercrafts. And to end the day every person completes 1 lap of the track to enter into the flying fish challenge with the fastest time of the year being presented with a free day to spend there again!!! You will also be presented with a certificate of your day.

We had a great morning, racing round the field in the hovercrafts. It was great fun and as difficult as i imagined. As with any of these experiences, we would have liked longer... but overall it was a great experience!
