Prepare to experience something entirely unique with the Hovercraft Flying Experience Taster. You'll receive training and orientation before taking control of a hovercraft for 5 laps of a challenging and rewarding circuit.
Once fitted with your helmet, your experience will start with you learning how to start, stop and steer the hovercraft. Once you've got that down, you'll practise basic manoeuvers, including performing the hovercraft equivalent of a hand-brake turn. After successfully completing your training, you'll get 5 thrilling laps around a circuit that will challenge your newly learnt skills. For attendees who can't quite get to grips with flying a hovercraft during the training stage, you'll get 5 laps as a passenger around the same course, with your instructor showing you exactly what these machines can do.
Please allow up to 1 hour at the venue.
Light refreshments are usually available to purchase on the day.
