Hovercraft Experience for One
Add to Basket
Have a go at being a hovercraft pilot with this exclusive one to one experience. You’ve seen them on the telly and always thought they looked pretty cool - now is your chance to learn to handle one. Learn to fly on land with an experienced instructor, mastering the basics of hovercraft flight before taking on the 30 acre lake where you will glide effortlessly up to 40mph forwards and maybe even sideways.
This is an individual, fast paced experience and you’ll have 30 minutes at the controls to find out what you’re made of. With high speed modern equipment, expert tuition and training, this will be the ride of your life.
- Full safety briefing
- 30 minute one to one session
- Experience gift pack including personalised voucher and message card
What happens on the day?
You will need to arrive at the venue 15 minutes prior to your start time, in order to receive a quick briefing and any safety equipment you may need.
You will, initially, learn how to operate the craft on land with an instructor sat behind you giving you tuition throughout; the important thing is you will be at the controls for the entire 30 minutes. Once you have mastered this you will move on to the water, and you may reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour - sometimes sideways! You may want to clean up after your wild ride so why not head to the shower rooms and once done relax in the bar area after your crazy experience.
