What Is A Hovercraft Experience?
Our range of Hovercrafts have to be some of the most versatile vehicles we offer for off road driving experiences here on TrackDays. Why? Well, ACVs (air cushioned vehicles as they are also known) can go just about anywhere - land, water. Their amphibious nature means they offer speed, power and maximum fun wherever they may be.
And as you’ll also discover, the minimum age requirement for all of our Hovercraft experience days is 12 years and up. So whether you’re just in your pre-teens or of the older variety, in a family or even a group of friends, there’s great fun for everyone to enjoy on these unique driving day packages.
What Happens on a Hovercraft Experience?
Whether you opt for our Taster (5 lap), Blast (10 lap) or Thrill (15 lap) packages, your day out on the hovercraft course will begin with a welcome and safety briefing from a qualified hovercraft instructor, who will talk you through what to expect and also ensure your safety is a prime consideration at all times.
From there, it’s time to get kitted up with your helmet for a practice session, where you’ll learn all the basics of driving the hovercraft. The great thing about this is that even if you don’t take like a duck to water on your trial run, you can be the driver or passenger on any of these experiences. So even if it’s the instructor at the controls, you’ll get to enjoy air fuelled fun that’s sure to be remembered for years to come.
Where Can I Go on a Hovercraft Experience?
Our range of Hovercraft days currently take place at three locations across the UK, all with fantastic access from nearby surrounding counties. Those in London and the South East of England can take to ACVs at North Weald Airfield in Essex, which has great links from the M25 motorway and A12.
Up in Lincolnshire, Blyton Park Driving Centre is easily accessible from South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire for hovercraft fun, and in South Wales, there’s the chance to take to the controls of a hovercraft at Llandow Circuit. We’re hoping that more venues will be available in the future, so make sure you watch this space.
