This is a real speed demon and water lover's experience as you get to choose your ride - a jetbike, a jetski or even a jetRIB - as you delight in powering over the water near Reading in Berkshire.
Learning to ride a jetbike has got to be one of the easiest ways to take to the water as they are sit down and relatively stable. Mind you, don't be fooled - as soon as you open the throttle you're away quicker than you can say 'Where are the brakes?'!
For those who really want to test their stamina and balance on the open water, a jetski is the perfect challenge. Not as easy as it looks, these powerful personal watercraft will more than likely have you off and into the water several times. The question is, will you graduate from kneeling to standing up to ride the jetski?
A new and really fun way to get on the water is the jetRIB - a cross between a normal Rigid Inflatable Boat and a jetbike. You will find these powerful boats are stable, responsive and handle beautifully on the corners, giving you the confidence to skim across the water at speed.
If you choose the Jetski experience for one, the machine of your choice is all your for 30 minutes. If you opt for the Shared jetski experience, two of you share the driving and riding time on either the Jetbike or the JetRib, so you're both out on the water all the time, either as passenger or driver.
With all that excitement on the water, you'll probably want to relax afterwards and what better way to do that than chilling out by the side of the lake. The centre offers great facilities for all the family with a childrens paddling area, onsite snacks and refreshments and even BBQs in the summer.
Experiences will last around an hour and include a welcome and safety briefing, machine introduction/instruction with an RYA qualified instructor and approximately 30 minutes riding time. A wetsuit and buoyancy aids are provided along with complimentary towels. Experiences allow you to choose to ride one of the following jetcraft:stand up Jetski, sit down Jetbike or a unique Jetrib. Shared experiences allow two people to ride on either a sit down Jetbike or a Jetrib together, splitting the riding time between you,

Experiences operate from April to September, six days a week (closed Tuesdays). Sessions are usually available between 1000 and dusk.
The venue is a 25 acre lake which provides a one mile course for jetbikes and jetribs. Due to its greater difficulty jetskiing takes place in a separate buoyed off training area. The venue is easily accessible via junction 11 of the M4.
There is a minimum age of 14 for jetskis and 16 for jetbikes and jetribs. These experiences are unsuitable for non swimmers. All under 18's must be accompanied on site by a parent or guardian who must sign an indemnity on their behalf. An instructor will ride on board for the initial training, once they are happy with your ability you can ride solo. At the instructors discretion you may be able to ride with a passenger (jetbikes and jetribs only). There may be other craft using the lake.
Friends and family are very welcome (but no dogs please), there are viewing areas from the Clubhouse decking area around the lake along with a childrens paddling area. Hot and cold drinks and snacks are available to purchase at all times with a Kitchen available at weekends and a bar during opening hours. There are changing rooms with toilets and power showers.
