Hovercraft Racing Challenge - Athboy Hovercraft Centre

Location: Co. Meath, Athboy, Delvin Road Voucher for: 1 Season:  Any time of year

If you are looking for a real adrenaline rush, hover crafting is just for you. This breathtaking experience is available just 1 hr. Drive from Dublin city Centre on a specially prepared water and land track. The Hovercraft vehicle provides an amazing opportunity to fly on the ground, on the water and even in the air and that makes this experience a real must for any hardened petrol head or speed demon!

What is hovercraft racing?

Hovercrafts are small engined ACVs, or Air Cushioned Vehicles, designed to operate both on land and on water. They are easy to learn, but difficult to master. There are no brakes - just the throttle, basic rudder steering and you. At Athboy Hovercraft Centre you can learn how to master the hovercraft. You can fly solo on our water and land track, complete with hairpin turns, water course, splash deck and long straights!

At Athboy Hovercraft Centre we provide full instructions on how to operate our hovercrafts, as well as providing all the necessary safety equipment and advice. However, due to the nature of the activity, we would strongly advise our customers to ensure they are wearing appropriate clothing.
