Hovercraft Experience Days

Set in natural marshland between Manchester and Liverpool, Hover Force has eight dedicated hovercraft circuits over both land and water. As the UK’s only activity centre to have two pairs of duelling tracks, guests can race hovercrafts on the neighbouring courses, making for the ultimate amphibious competition.

HoverForce is the premier venue for hovercrafting in the North West. Book online now to drive the largest hovercraft fleet in the UK.

Hovercrafting isn’t as simple as it might seem. With characteristics that resemble boats, planes, and supermarket trolleys, piloting these machines is tricky. We aim to teach you these skills quickly and safely. Steering is by a combination of handlebars and kneeling to shift your body weight, while the thrust – which can take you up to 35mph - is from an enormous duct fan behind you.

We are unique in that our water is shallow, and yet we have plenty of it. There’s no need to worry about life jackets, and you still get the sensation of drifting sideways over a wet surface.

The perfect gift for thrill seekers, all packages cater to novices, and our instructors will soon have you drifting smoothly around the course.

We provide all safety equipment, but please dress in appropriate clothing that you don’t mind getting wet!   We offer two hovercraft experiences...

Time trials:  where you race against the clock, are best suited to individuals and small groups. 

Hovercraft duelling: this takes place on our unique pair of identical side by side tracks that allow you to compete without the risk of collision. It’s drag racing for hovercrafts - ideal for stag and hen dos, or team building days and groups with more than 6 people – giving you maximum flying time at maximum speed..
