ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Hovercrafting Experience - Kent

This fantastic hovercrafting experience let's you drive, drift, slide and glide over all manner of surfaces in Kent.

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.
