One Hour Hovercraft Flying Experience for One
Hovercraft Flying with Axeler-8
Review by parent/purchaser!
Brilliant birthday present for a 16 year old. Very helpful, friendly, professional and knowledgeable instructors. The group was small - just 8 people - and this was a real bonus and waiting time between flights was short. The group was mixed young and old.
Rudimentary but perfectly adequate facilities for parents/spectators with shelter and tea and coffee to hand. Good loos! Didn't try the lunch place - had our picnic at the site of the Battle of Naseby just a couple of miles away.
Would definitely recommend.

This was a great experience, really enjoyable with a fun instructor!
We did it as a group of 4 and all enjoyed watching as we each missed many of the bends and turns, but you soon get the hang of it! Then you try your luck at the water! :-).

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

Hovercraft - excellent fun
We upgraded this experience which was well worth every penny for our son's 18th birthday. The group was divided into two groups to get a handle on the hovercraft and then the group raced each other for the best time. There was a nice mix of ages - young and mature!!
NB: parking is in a field so dependant on the weather conditions.
