Great experience
29 July 2019
A really great couple of hours! Weather wasn't good (very rainy) but that didn't dampen the experience - just had wet knees at the end! The location was good and easy to find, and the staff were great - friendly and helpful, with a great instructor to help you along the way. This was a top class experience - really good fun and something a little different from the norm.

A great activity
23 April 2019
This is a great activity to try made even better by Marc's enthusiasm to help you get the most out of it. His knowledge and ability to teach are excellent. The only negative is not getting to spend longer in the craft.... Thanks Marc and team, hopefully see you again sometime.

Really good fun. Excellent teachers, took a bit of time to get a handle on the controls but once done was really flying. Great races.

hovercraft
12 October 2015
Really fun few hours, would recommend. Much harder to control than they look but once you get the hang of them they are great fun. Only downside would be that there is not enough time spent in the hovercraft. I would have preferred getting to spend a lot more time in there especially at the beginning to gain confidence and control. Would do it again if there was an advanced or more involved experience.

Light hovercraft have matured over the past 35 years, This experience lets people with no experience get to grips with the basics, Flying light hovercraft that are ideal for the novice. Easy to control and great fun.

Rubbish
01 November 2014
Every six months i purchase an activity from buy a gift and I am aIways more than happy normally . I would strongly NOT recommend this gift to a friend or family ! Just a overgrown field with two TINY puddles ! (not as described in the pictures) Spent half the time waiting for the BOYS running the show to repair the hovercrafts ! At one point my family member said " lets just go " but after spending £80 and a days holiday off work i was reluctant but considering leaving ! Buy a gift in my experience prior to this has always been amazing ! But on this occasion shocking ! I really do hope this was just a one off and in future i will still be happy. Buy a gift team please get rid off this experience as it really is making a bad name for yourself ! I hope this is just one awful experience on your list and not one of many !

Hovercraft Experience

The hovercraft experience was good it was a little difficult to find the Veniew. The instructor explained the controls and the course well. The various races made the event even more fun.

A brilliant time had by all
18 September 2014
There were 5 of us doing this hovercraft experience and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The instructors were really lovely friendly and helpful. It takes a little while to get the hang of the hovercraft but it's still great fun trying. Got to race each other in teams. I would definitely recommend this experience.
