Hovercrafts in the heart of Derbyshire.

So you’re looking for stuff do do in Derby and Nottingham? Ever considered Hovercrafts? Well, these vehicles are terrific fun whether you’re on land or water (just on land at our Derbyshire venue!) A hovercraft group activity is probably something you’ve never done before, so you can definitely call it unique.

Driven by powerful 2 stroke air cooled 40hp engines, you’re going to need to keep your wits about you to get the most out of them, so thankfully all the training is provided beforehand.

One engine provides thrust and lift, therefore you need to ‘balance’ the throttle and shift your weight to steer – it’s not all about bags of throttle here but more about controlled skill.

And be rest assured these hovers are the real deal – not the ones from Back to the Future, in fact they were designed and built by the same team that provided the hovers used in the James Bond film Die Another Day.

Oh yeah, there are no brakes either. So, erm…… good luck with that!

This hovercraft group activity will have you belly laughing all the way back to your group accommodation.

All the fun with no drama

Early December we undertook a stag do booked through Hard Days Knight (HDK). Greg and the team there made the whole experience as easy and seamless as possible, helping us book amazing accommodation in Belper for 13 people and then finding us fantastic activities to fill the stag. Greg was a pleasure to wok with being friendly and understanding as our plans shifted around a bit and organised a shooting experience and pub tour for the stag both of which went down amazingly. The shooting experience as a fun filled morning of competition and laughs then the pub tour took us to some fantastic pubs, with great choices of beer and food. We'd all be happy to do the tour again and see what other pubs Greg would find for us! Through HDK we had transport to and from the activities sorted and it made the weekend flow so smoothly. I can't thank HDK enough for making it such an easy experience and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to organise a Stag or similar event. Thank you so much :)

First of all would love to say thank you to greg and the team from the start right up to the end they was always helpful and never to busy to help. We booked a stag weekend with them that consisted with a log cabin, quad biking and a zombie experience the whole group had an amazing time so much that we are now looking at doing it yearly (after convincing the wives). So Thank you to HDK for an amazing stag weekend that was planned by yourselves. Ben

I used HDK for my sisters hen do. If you want hassle free please and organisation, use Hard Days Knight was effortless . I just picked where and when and what activities we wanted and it was all organised for us. Very very helpful and accommodating couldn’t do enough, was a pleasure. Answered any questions kept in touch.
