Really fun few hours, would recommend. Much harder to control than they look but once you get the hang of them they are great fun. Only downside would be that there is not enough time spent in the hovercraft. I would have preferred getting to spend a lot more time in there especially at the beginning to gain confidence and control. Would do it again if there was an advanced or more involved experience.
What would you improve for next time? As above

Light hovercraft have matured over the past 35 years, This experience lets people with no experience get to grips with the basics, Flying light hovercraft that are ideal for the novice. Easy to control and great fun.

Every six months i purchase an activity from buy a gift and I am aIways more than happy normally . I would strongly NOT recommend this gift to a friend or family ! Just a overgrown field with two TINY puddles ! (not as described in the pictures) Spent half the time waiting for the BOYS running the show to repair the hovercrafts ! At one point my family member said " lets just go " but after spending £80 and a days holiday off work i was reluctant but considering leaving ! Buy a gift in my experience prior to this has always been amazing ! But on this occasion shocking ! I really do hope this was just a one off and in future i will still be happy. Buy a gift team please get rid off this experience as it really is making a bad name for yourself ! I hope this is just one awful experience on your list and not one of many !

Hovercraft Experience

Location: Newcastle Age: 35-44 Bought For Brother Occasion: Birthday
The hovercraft experience was good it was a little difficult to find the Veniew. The instructor explained the controls and the course well. The various races made the event even more fun.
What would you improve for next time? It would have been good if there was some directions e-mailed before the event as the sat nav took us to the wrong place.

There were 5 of us doing this hovercraft experience and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The instructors were really lovely friendly and helpful. It takes a little while to get the hang of the hovercraft but it's still great fun trying. Got to race each other in teams. I would definitely recommend this experience.

Location: London Age: 25-34 Bought For Partner Occasion: Christmas
I was nervous as i've previously struggled to control a quadbike, but this was much easier because it's lighter. Great fun, but sad i was 0.5 seconds slower than an 83 year old!!!
