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!!!
