5. Hovercrafting Fun at Foylehov

OA 5

Foylehov Activity Centre is the only place you can try Hovercraft Flying Northern Ireland. Experience the thrill of gliding over land and water on a cushion of air at up to 40mph, on their purpose built grass track with abundant water hazards and tricky hairpins and bends.  Their specially designed Eagle 447 crafts are easy to operate with minimal tuition, but require nerve and new “driving skills” to maximise the exhilaration of skimming in and out of water hazards at high speed.
