Enjoy this unique driving experience in Market Harborough as you climb aboard the vehicles of the future... Hovercrafts!
- Market Harborough (Leicestershire)
- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
Think you're a highly competent driver? Think there's no motor vehicle that you couldn't drive like a pro? Think again! Hovercrafting is like nothing you've experienced before; flying over multiple terrains on a cushion of air is novel in itself, but steering on your knees and using your entire body to change the direction of the vehicle makes this a completely unique experience that you'll never forget.
The activity begins on arrival at the Leicestershire venue where you'll meet the expert instructor and any guests joining the experience. After a safety briefing and demonstration from the instructor, you'll get your first feel for driving a hovercraft. With the safety cord wrapped round your wrist, you'll slowly increase the throttle until you feel the craft rise from the ground and pitch forward - and you're off! Using your body weight to manipulate the air beneath you, you'll have to focus on your balance, judgement and forward-thinking to manoeuvre the hovercraft around the purpose-built course, flying over ground and water. When you're confident in your abilities, you'll get to indulge in some friendly competition earning points for every correct manoeuvre, and finish with a time-trial race!
Hovercrafting is totally unique and makes a fantastic way to get
outside and enjoy some fresh air. A perfect gift for driving
enthusiasts and those who love to try new things, this is one
experience you're sure to remember for a lifetime!

A fantastic experience and would love to do it again sometime soon. I was very nervous with the thought of the deep water, but there was no need to have worried. Absolutely brilliant.
Had a great day, lots of laughs, thanks very much.
