Good experience but picture/description misleading

Location: Essex Age: 25-34 Bought For Friend Occasion: Birthday
Although my friend and I really enjoyed ourselves the picture and description were incorrect, when you book you think there is going to be a big lake but there are just 2 large puddles. We were really looking forward to the water part.
What would you improve for next time? more water

My boyfriend and I did the hovercrafting at the Leicestershire location which we think was a good choice. It was really good fun and a nice, informal day out with a good instructor. We enjoyed navigating around the obstacles (or sometimes just driving over them!) and going over the water.

We arrived and had safety briefing and got our helmets on and then we were off! 2 laps on a practice lap to get to grips with the handling and then onto the main track. Best part for me was the relay! Staff were really friendly and helpful - would definitely recommend this to anyone. We had a 12 yr old boy, myself and my partner and then a group of 5 friends and everyone had a brilliant time.

I was given this gift for my birthday from my wife, it was very poor value as we only had 4 laps of a small track with 15 metres of water to fly over. We had about 8 minutes of driving time on the hovercraft the advert said we would be there for 2 to 3 hours actually we were there for 50 minutes and that included all the safety talk and a demo by the instructor very very poor value

Hello Thanks for submitting your review. I'm really sorry to hear that you weren't completely satisfied with your experience. I am sorry that the experience didn't last longer. We do advise that you're expected to be at the venue for 2-3 hours but this would include waiting for the safety briefing, demo and driving the hovercraft as well as waiting for other participants to take their go at the hovercraft. If you are the first to go onto the hovercraft, you may finish earlier than anticipated however, each participant will receive the same time in the hovercraft. We appreciate your feedback and I've passed your comments across to our Adrenaline Category Manager for future review. Thanks again for your feedback.

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!)

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.

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!
