When Sir Christopher Cockrill invented the hovercraft did he ever envisage that it would be so much fun to drive one? The transport that can go over both land and sea, the hovercraft is a machine of wonder. You are sitting on a cushion of air, so the ride is wonderful, it's like being on a flying carpet. Do you fly it, or drive it? Are you the captain or the pilot? Either way, you are going to have a whale of a time on this remarkable vehicle. You'll be given an introduction and full safety briefing before moving onto a familiarisation session where you'll learn how to control your hovercraft. Once you've mastered the art of propelling it in the directions that you want, you will have a full hovercraft experience. This will involve going over both land and water. Once you've had plenty of practice, you will undertake a competitive timed lap of the course. What a wonderful and unusual day out - It'll be something you'll never forget.

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. 14 May 2011
Fun Day Out I bought this for my Partner and he thoroughly enjoyed it. The weather was fantastic which helped but he really enjoyed driving the hovercraft - totally different to anything he'd experienced before. Very well organised, friendly staff and easy to find (great directions given). 02 June 2014
Great Fun 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). 19 May 2014
