Discover the Thrill of Hovercrafting

Where better to have your first exhilarating hovercrafting experience than Axceler-8 - the centre for UK hovercrafting set among 400 acres of rolling countryside. 

Why not start with a HoverBlast, a great way to get you introduced to why this activity is so much fun.
