Hovercrafting - Hover over land & water at speeds up to 30mph!
|Could you master handlebar-style steering and the manipulation of a huge rotary fan in these tricky to maneuver machines? Hovercrafts are capable of travelling over almost any smooth surface and supported by a cushion of air being ejected from below the craft. An experience that's often described as trying to drive a car on ice. Already experienced hovercrafting? Check out Buggy Racing in Ireland for another spine-tingling encounter.|
|To pilot these machines, you must perch in a kneeling position and shift your body weight to help direct the craft. The key skill is perfecting your weight distribution. There are no brakes, gears or reverse so you need to think lively as you hover around the obstacle course and race against the clock. Instructors will brief you on the controls and handling before setting out on your own air-cushioned hovercrafting in Ireland experience.|
|Hovercraft racing will have you sliding and drifting over water, grass, sand or anything that gets in your way. Experience the immense feeling of hovering first hand and test your judgement as you take control of this powerful craft. The closest you'll get to a flying car and a truly unique driving challenge!|
