Hovercrafts are like go-karting on air

Sea travel by hovercraft may now be dead but you can still feel like you are in a sci-fi film with our Manchester hovercraft experience. On your stag or hen do try your luck across land and water in this exciting and fresh activity, which makes a great alternative to go-karting – it’s unique, fun and bound to get the adrenaline going!!

See how good your coordination skills are as you try to steer around the course aboard the hovercraft and laugh at your fellow drivers as they do the same! There’s no experience like it – you will feel the wind and the vibrations beneath you as you approach speeds of up to 40mph.

Hovercraft Manchester


The site is around a 45 minute drive from Manchester city centre and is situated just off the motorway. If you fancy it, you can also try an off-road buggies assault course and zorbing on site as well. Just tell us if you would like a fun-packed day of multiple activities!

 Our supplier now has a fleet of 10 hovercraft with single seat snapper and 2 seat marlin 2s as well as a few others. They operate 2 hovercraft tracks and we will have 2 hovercraft on each track. For group sizes up to 14 they will use one track and  for larger groups if doing just hovercraft then they will use both tracks and therefore 4 hovercraft for the 1 group. The experience is fast paced and through helmet mounted communications the team encourage any novices to go as fast as they dare. This gives you all the confidence that someone is right there to help them when it gets tricky.

The 1.5 hour session includes the following:

  • A group induction showing you how to use the hovercraft
  • 2 practice laps of the course
  • A changeover followed by another 2 laps

 Maximum weight is circa 18st with a minimum age of 7. Riders need to be able to kneel and use both arms freely. Not suitable for pregnant ladies.

N.B.  Transport is required to get to and from the site, which isnt included at the price quoted.

N.B. The maximum body weight for this activity is 18 stone.

The price quoted is based on 8 or more people taking part but the experience is suitable for groups of up to around 24per session. If your group is larger than that we suggest twinning your hovercraft booking with another activity on the same site. Ask on enquiry for details

We can also help arrange activities for groups other than stags and hens – such as birthdays or work dos. So get in touch if you want to try our Manchester hovercraft experience (or any other) –  let us know on the enquiry form, call us on 07970 047821 or email us on info@stagandhenmanchester.co.uk.
