I Really Didn't Think THIS Existed in REAL LIFE

One of my favorite video games as a kid was at the pizza place my grandparents always took me to. I’d beg my grandpa for some quarters and I’d pop them into a game called “Hydro Thunder”!

It was so cool because you got to race boats that were so fast they barely touched the water. But what I didn’t know was that is basically what hovercraft racing is!

A hovercraft uses a really powerful fan to push it up off the water OR the ground, and since it’s barely touching the surface it can go really fast!

Hovercraft races are fun to watch because they go from dry land to a lake and back. Check out one of the races and see how hovercraft work:
