Family Hovercraft Experience in Cheshire for 2

Kids learn with a parent how to pilot their own personal hovercraft during this exciting 1 hour session in Cheshire!

This family day out is the perfect opportunity for a parent and child to pilot one of the coolest machines out there: the hovercraft! During this awesome experience in Cheshire, one child will fly with an instructor while one parent flies their own personal craft on the same track, under the supervision of trained instructors. Learn to guide it around a waterlogged course, and compete to clock the fastest time!

Perfect for beginners, this experience takes place at one of the region’s top outdoor activity centres. On arrival, young pilots will be greeted by an instructor, who’ll discuss safety before introducing the group to the hovercraft. The English inventor Christopher Cockerell patented the first hovercraft in 1952. Since then, they’ve been put to different uses around the world, though today’s small craft still operate on the same principles as Cockerell’s original. On the race track, the instructor will show you both how to pilot the controls in order to fly these amazing machines. Your session will begin with a practice run on the short course, demonstrating how to start, stop, and tackle corners. Next, it’s time to ramp it up! You two will set off around the full course, featuring numerous turns and lots of water features. On your final lap, you’ll be positioned at the start line ready for a time trial race. Family rivalry? Never heard of it. Everyone’s a winner in a hovercraft!

This hovercraft family day is the perfect bonding activity to do together, and makes a great experience gift for parents who love to try new things.
