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.

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!!!

Great Fun. I was one of a group of ten blokes and was worried that it would be lots of hanging around and little action. - Not at all ! - We all got loads of goes. - An initial get familiar with handling the hovercraft. - Some non timed runs through obstacles. - A relay race (2 teams of 5). - A timed speed trial. - All were a bit different and made more fun by the cross wind ! Even when you weren't flying it was fun watching the others and LOL time when one of the guys stalled in the pond !. It is easy enough to fly the hovercraft but not so easy to do it well. I found it very satisfying when I got it right and a total laugh when I, and the others, got it wrong. - (Sorry about me hitting the tyres Marc).
What would you improve for next time? More of the same.

Well organised fun day. The activity centre (next to the gliding club ) has lots of things going on so it's somewhere we'll definitely come back to.
The winner of the day

Location: Groby Leicester Age: Over 65 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Birthday
What a great day out!! To start the day, the weather was going to be kind, sunny and dry. The venue was well directed so I got there well on time. Our instructor was terrific, the right balance of guidance, humour and direction so all seemed to be at ease with the craft, plus te rest of te team of helpers were really good. We all had 4 runs overall, both round the track and a bit over the water including a points race where you lost points for hitting the markers, a team relay and then an individual time trial all shown the way by a demo run by one of the team. The craft were quite fast but stable and very safe and no one flipped theirs though one tipped a bit! It was quite hard initially to get the steering correct but I think we all improved. All in all I really enjoyed the day

This activity was fun, fun,fun. The weather wasn't warm but the welcome was. Information and guidance about the do's and dont's was clear, concise and just enough to allow you to have a voyage of discovery of your own. Two top tips 1) if you are fussy about getting a bit muddy this is not for you. 2) Follow all the guidance on the buy a gift website about this activity i.e. about outdoor clothes and you shouldn't go far wrong.
