Airboat Ride 'n Slide
- 15 minutes
Get your heart pumping and adrenaline racing as you experience an authentic US airboat for a Ride 'n' Slide around the Hartbeespoort Dam. Feel the thunder of a 650 horsepower V8 as you transition between land and water.
An airboat is the only means of transport in the swamps. With a powerful engine driving a huge air propeller, there are no breaks and no reverse. The 6.8 l Chevy V8 is controlled with a gas pedal. Steering is with a rudder stick, and you can only maneuver when you have airflow on your rudders. The boat has no keel - it is flat - and doesn't turn: it slides sideways!
It is a boat - it drives like a car - and it behaves like an airplane!

Trip was cut short due to some fault.
Owners offered some compensation, was disappointed since we had to drive almost an hour to get there.
Host were nice though. Maybe just a bad day for me.
