Had a laugh here with my brother in law. I guess the only time I will actually pilot a hovercraft! Lots of fun and takes a bit of concentration and skill to get right. We did get pretty wet as it was raining and they kick up lots of spray!

Booked as an activity during a day out with friends. Group of 4 of us. Our instructor was very friendly and we certainly felt safe with him. Very muddy but luckily we had brought a change of clothes with us. A great time had by all. Well worth doing. Thanks Hovercraft Adventures!!

We had a great day with Toby looking after us. We had plenty of time in the Hovercrafts, some good instruction, and some fun competition between us. I would recommend this as an unusual and fun day out.

I had an amazing time at hovercraft adventures. But it was very difficult to control the craft. A member of staff called Antonio completely ruined the experience for me as he treated me like a child and took it far too seriously. However Toby was absolutely fantastic and made the experience much more fun!

Friendly staff and a great day out. We had this booked for us by friends for my husband's birthday and I was a little unsure about whether I'd enjoy it. We both had fun and spent the afternoon laughing and trying to steer the hover craft around the track. Great fun for everyone aged 12 years upwards and they cater... More

We had a brilliant morning! The activity was great fun. The instructor was helpful, clear and friendly and everything felt very safe. The only annoying thing is that people who buy lots of laps get to go first so you do spend quite a bit of time waiting around. Overall a great trip, lots of fun and great value for... More

Had a great time visiting on a wet Sunday morning. I had a voucher as a birthday present and went along really excited. The entrance is clearly signposted from the a228 and yes it is a dirt track but that is sent to you in an email when you book. For all those mentioning the facilities, you go for the... More
