Thunderbolt Powerboat Experience for Two
For a real aquatic adventure look no further. The Thunderbolt is a high-performance inflatable catamaran which is simple to control, highly responsive and packs a real punch. Begin with a briefing and then both don specialist race team kits to get ready, revved up and ready for action. Once out on open water, enjoy a 15 minute blast of Thunderbolt fury courtesy of a powerboating professional. Hold on tight while the instructor opens up the high-performance 90 hp outboard and pulls off a series of wave jumps and high-speed take offs. Then, take turns being passenger and driver and race against the clock on a challenging offshore circuit to compete for the title of 'Aqua Stig of the Year'. Perfect for a pair of avid thrill seekers!
