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.

A great experience!! I bought this hovercraft flying experience for my husband's birthday. We went for the double as it's more fun when you both get to have a go (I usually end up standing on the sidelines watching him drive fast cars lol!) and we both loved it! There were 12 of us altogether, and we each had 5 short goes on the hovercraft; from circuits to familiarise ourselves with the steering and flying from land to water and back again, through an accuracy trial and both individual and team time trial races. A healthy sense of friendly competition soon sprang up among us and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and had a laugh. Once we got used to throwing ourselves into corners using our bodyweight to steer, we were able to get up a fair bit of speed and still make (most of) the corners! It's quite physical at times, and my thigh muscles were letting me know they were there towards the end of the morning! A fantastic experience - a little bit out of the ordinary for a seasoned racing experience customer and that's what made it so special. (That and the fact that we got to share the experience - quite a talking point!) 08 July 2012
Amazing day, great fun!! A group of us went and did this at the Husbands Bosworth location over the weekend, it was absolutely fantastic. Even the people that were hesitant about it has a brilliant time. If you're considering this along with other things then seriously, give it a try, you won't be disappointed. 21 May 2012

Great time had by all My fiancee and I chose this instead of the dinner for two on a Thames cruise that we were initially offered, and we're very glad we did - we had a very enjoyable, very different and memorable experience. The staff were welcoming, helpful and professional, the equipment was great - particularly the clean, new helmets in all sizes from small (my fiancee) to XXL (me!) - and the hovercrafting itself was great fun for everyone in the group, from the racers to the dawdlers. Would happily come back for more and improve my technique! 09 September 2011
