Hover Drift Experience

Hover Drift Experience


What Hovercraft Racing at ODD is?

There’s no other machine quite as quirky as a hovercraft.
They’re challenging, exciting, scarily unpredictable and great fun.
Hover-Drifting offers a completely unique experience and we are the only venue in Ireland and we use Wild open water as part of the course!
Issued with Life Jackets, wet gear and helmet get into a a single-seater Merlin Beast Hovercraft that is  part plane-part jet ski, with no brakes.  It is like driving on ice –you aim to go forward, preferably not sideways – and not doing donuts!

What it isn't ?

It is:
– not for wimps!
– not for under 16s (we can offer passenger rides to under 16’s)
– something you’ve experienced before!

What makes ODD's Hovercraft experience unique?

Hoverdrifting at ODD is a unique experience as we are:

– the only venue in Ireland
– the only venue using wild open water as part of the course
– the only venue with grass to lake and lake to grass transition points (also known as shoreline!)
– the only venue you leave as a Pilot! 🙂

What happens when you get here for your Hoverdrifting Experience?

Arrive to a friendly warm welcome at ODD for your unique flying experience.
Issued with life jackets, wet gear and helmet, your instructor will provide tuition and a safety briefing.  Then once skilled-up you’ll fly unaccompanied around a course out on Brackley Lake, with on-going instruction through Bluetooth headset.
Learn how to lift, move forward, set down and stop.
Fly solo against the clock, two craft at a time, at full throttle to keep your ‘nose’ up!
