in Norfolk, there’s no shortage of things to do at Wensum Valley.
Hovercrafts are specialised vehicles which ‘float’ on a cushion of air about a foot over any surface to be used as a means of transportation and recreation both on water and on land. Powered by a fan or propeller which pushes air backwards, the hovercraft is essentially frictionless and can be steered using rudders adjusting the airflow from the propeller.
Wensum Valley Hotel are pleased to offer our guests the possibility to rent your own hovercraft to enjoy an exhilarating experience on our secure land-based hovercraft course. With training provided by our skilled and experienced instructors you will soon learn how to safely master your hovercraft before practising your new skills. For groups, parties, stag-do’s, etc. we are happy to arrange fun hovercraft events where you learn how to operate a hovercraft and then challenge your friends, clients or colleges in a thrilling hovercraft race.
Our Norfolk hover crafting experience starts at £50.00 per person.
Your day begins with a safety briefing from our instructors then each guest has the chance to take part in three 2 lap races. The length of your session depends on the number of participants, but as a guide, a group of 8 people would take approximately 90 minutes.
