If youíre thinking of trying out hovercrafting for your stag do then youíve made a good choice; hovercrafting is definitely an exciting and unusual stag activity! You essentially have control over a one-man craft thatís capable of travelling over water at high speeds. It's unlikely the boys have ever done this and that has a healthy degree of impressive stag weekend kudos. It will make your stag do unforgettable and its novelty outweighs the more exclusive nature of the activity, meaning that while there won't be multiple vehicles on track you will enjoy a rare and unforgettable hovercraft experience with a whole new set of skills. It's pretty darn awesome!
On top of all that itís also available in lots of locations, from Bristol to Wroclaw, which means that no matter where the stag train is taking you, youíll probably have a friendly neighbourhood hovercraft company to hand. Thatís as friendly as itíll get though guys, what ensues is danger, thrills and fast-paced action in an activity thatíll have you and the lads white-knuckled and pale-faced as you speed through the air. Embrace the challenge though and make it a legendary event, hovercrafting is the crown of stag activities and youíll have the time of your lives.
You'll arrive at the venue in advance of the session start time. On arrival you'll be greeted and taken straight to an introduction and safety briefing. Pay attention because hovercrafting is different and the more tips you get the more you'll get out of the experience. To start with when you board the hovercraft you'll engage the basic skills, forward, back turning etc, then when you've got to grips with the hovercrafting "101" you're off. Because these machines are expensive and take a lot of mechanical care and attention you'll race against a single competitor. The competitive edge of the activity is time trials against your fellow stag, and depending on the course this will culminate in a team relay or a series of finals!
Allow a half-day session, typically your hovercrafting experience by itself will last 60 minutes but this will depend on your group size and the location. For example if you choose hovercrafting only, it can take 60-120 minutes but if it's done as part of a combo session the whole event can take up to 3.5 hours.
All necessary equipment (eg helmets) provided. The hovercrafts themselves will vary slightly with manufacturer but engine size is up to 500cc, offering as much as 50 BHP. For a single seater hovercraft experience that's a lot of pull.
Dress for comfort and wear appropriate footwear, trainers are ideal.
All year round but it's a rare activity and there are only so many hovercrafts, so book early.
