Take to the controls of a race-bred hovercraft at a purpose-built course. Your instructor will show you the skills that you need to operate the vehicle. Once you have mastered the basics you will move on to the Hover Track – featuring both land and water sections. You will be able to put your skills to the test in a series of relay and/or pursuit races against other participants or the clock. Take the Final Challenge and see how quickly you can complete a full lap of the track! It's a unique racing day you'll not forget in a hurry.
Upon arrival you will be given a safety briefing. Your instructor will show you the basic skills that you will need to fly the hovercraft. Once you are ready you will move on to the Hover Track. The itinerary varies with location.

At the Kent location you will participate in a series of races against other participants; and after a break for refreshments, each participant will be timed as they go around the track, with the final lap being recorded. At the end of the year, the winner will be contacted to claim their prize of a free day at the hover course.

At the Leicestershire location you will tackle a series of obstacle courses, as well as being split into 2 teams and then racing against the clock one at a time, the fastest participant will win a prize at the end of the day.

At the Shropshire location you will receive tuition from an experienced instructor before flying solo for a number of laps around the challenging 1km track.
Expect to spend 3-4 hours at either venue for this experience.

Your voucher is valid for 10 months. This experience is for two people.

When we got in the hovercraft it felt like that scene in the rescuers where they're escaping! lots of fun laughing and racing around especially when Liz almost fell in.

I saw this hovercraft gift experience on buyagift when I was looking for a different present for my best friend. I chose it because it looked like a lot of fun wasn't your usual flying / driving / sailing experience and more importantly I could go with her! We had a great day in our hovercrafts and didn't stop laughing! Brilliant day!
