Leicestershire Hovercrafting Experience

Experience the incredible sensation of Hovercrafting with this Leicestershire Hovercrating taster!

Experience the thrill of hovercrafting, with this incredible taster session in Leicestershire. Hovercrafting is an incredible experience which many compare to the feeling of driving on ice - a but with a little less steering control, and a lot less danger! The hovercraft operates by moving around on a cushion of high pressure air that is blasted downwards against the ground, from the underside of the craft. This allows you to slide smoothly across the surface of grass, mud, water, tarmac - pretty much any flat surface you can think of!

On the morning of this taster hovercrafting experience you will meet the rest of your group, and your instructor, at the Leicestershire hovercrafting centre, for an introduction to the experience day and a safety briefing. This done, your instructor will show you how to control the hovercraft at a slow, walking pace. Once you are feeling cotrolled and confident you can try slightly faster, more difficult challenges! Each member of the group will take alternate turns flying the hovercraft on each level, upping the ante each time! With guidance from your instruction throughout, and driving technique broken down into easy steps, you'll find yourself increasing in confidence as you try out some fun manoeuvres like 'handbrake' turns! When the instructor thinks you are a competent enough driver, you can start doing laps of the circuit. And as you are in control of the throttle, you control the speed!

This hovercrafting experience is a totally unique and very fun experience, so whether you've always wanted to drive a hovercraft yourself, or you are looking for an interesting and unique gift, this Leicestershire hovercrafting experience is jut the ticket!

Leicestershire Hovercrafting Experience

Chris adds to the enjoyment of this AMAZING experience, with excellent instruction and sense of humour. Excellent value for money and WE WILL BE BACK.


This was a fun day out in Leicestershire! I'd never tried anything like hovercrafting before so was a little nervous, but I really enjoyed it and got the hang of controlling it by the end of the session!


Hovercrafting is quite a strange experience! Takes a while to get used to the sensation but once you're comfortable it's super fun!

Hovercraft Experience Day

Very cold day which probably didn't help but still very enjoyable. It takes a little while to get used to steering the hovercraft with the handlebars and your bodyweight, but certainly gets easier. Would love to visit again in warmer weather and try the hovercrafts on water.

Despite the very cold northern weather, this hovercrafting experience was thoroughly enjoyable. Definitely recommend!
