We really like this Experience within easy reach of Bedford, Bedfordshire.
Experience the sheer thrill and exciting versatility of riding a hovercraft during an intensive session for two in Bedfordshire, with an expert instructor on hand, helping to make things easy. Starting with a safety briefing, get stuck in by getting to grips with the controls with the instructors guidance, and learn how to fly on land. When you both feel ready to progress, venture to the 20 acre lake and master the art of gliding sideways, taking the craft to speeds of up to 40 mph. Enjoy exclusive time with the instructor and both get 30 minutes in control of this impressive vehicle. Receive a personalised certificate each to take home and remember this exhilarating and unforgettable experience.
Runs on Saturdays, Sundays and occasional weekdays from March to November.
