Take to the water for an adrenaline-fuelled adventure with this Thunderbolt Powerboat Driving Experience. Get behind the wheel and prepare to bolt across the open waters of the Solent strait in the nimble three-seater South African Thunderbolt. Agile, responsive and great fun on water, the Thuderbolt allows you to change direction as fast as you like, accelerate quickly to hair-raising speeds and jump the waves. A fully qualified skipper will be on hand with dual controls to help guide you through the process; once you've tried your hand at racing, you can sit back and enjoy the ride as everyone takes a turn. With a full hour on the water, there's plenty of time for excitement, and you'll get to take in the picturesque surroundings, too. Hold on tight and enjoy the thrills.
Need to Know
You'll need to arrive at least 30 minutes before your allotted time to sign in and complete any paperwork. You'll receive a safety briefing from the shore crew and skippers, before heading out on the water with your skipper on the three-seater Thunderbolt. You'll share the driving with one or two other participants, so you'll have at least 13 minutes of hands-on driving time; prepare for a wet and wild ride as your instructor guides you on cornering and racing techniques, wave jumping and high speed take-offs. Once your turn is up, you can sit back and enjoy the thrills from the passenger seats.
