Take to the controls of a race-bred Formula 25 hovercraft at one of two purpose-built courses. Your instructor will show you the skills that you need to operate the vehicle. Once you have mastered the basics you will move on to the Hover Track – featuring both land and water sections. You will be able to put your skills to the test in a series of relay and pursuit races against other participants. Take the Flying Fish Challenge and see how quickly you can complete a full lap of the track – the fastest participant of the year will win a free day at the course.
Upon arrival you will be given a safety briefing. Your instructor will show you the basic skills that you will need to fly the hovercraft. Once you are ready you will move on to the Hover Track. The itinerary varies with location.
At the Leicestershire location you will tackle a series of obstacle courses, as well as being split into 2 teams and then racing against the clock one at a time, the fastest participant will win a prize at the end of the day.
At the Shropshire location you will receive tuition from an experienced instructor before flying solo for a number of laps around the challenging 1km track. Expect to spend 3-4 hours at either venue for this experience.
