Kids love hoverboards and are able to master riding them super fast. They get young people outdoors into the fresh air with their pals and there are lots of cool & fun hoverboard tricks and games they can try.
Take a look at our five cool & fun hoverboard games for kids...which are just as much fun for adults too! Remember, you should wear a helmet at all times.
- Hoverboard tag – this is a hoverboard twist on an old classic. One person is ‘it’ or the catcher and it is their job to catch other hoverboarders playing the game. Once somebody has been touched by the person who is ‘it’, they then become the catcher and it’s their turn to tag somebody else. It’s such a simple premise, but trust us, you can have hours of fun with this game and it is much more fun on a hoverboard than it is on foot. It's harder too!
- Hoverboard race – running is so yesterday! Enjoy the thrill of racing on two wheels with this cool&fun hoverboard game. Get everyone to line up behind a line, once somebody has shouted ‘go’ you all race to the finish line and the first one there wins. You can make it more interesting by adding in obstacles, challenges and tricks. The race can be as simple, complex or time consuming as you want to make it. If there are a lot of hoverboarders, you can stage heats until there are two people left who can finally compete to win.
- Last man standing – kids love to spin around in circles until they fall over and if your head can stand it, this is a great game to play on a hoverboard too. The idea is to do as many circles as you can on the board, before having to stop because you feel so dizzy. The last person on their hoverboard wins. Because there is every chance you could fall off your hoverboard doing this trick, it pays to wear a helmet and protective clothing to be on the safe side.
- Simon says – another classic game that works well with a hoverboard twist. One person is nominated to be Simon and it is their job to tell everyone what to do, for example ‘Simon says do a wheelie/move backwards for five seconds/face a nearby landmark etc. If somebody follows an instruction without the words ‘Simon says..’ being uttered, then they are out and it is their turn to be Simon.
- Don’t drop the ball – this is a really fun team game where you have to work together. Get a balloon or a lightweight ball and work as a team to keep in the air – as if it were a game of volleyball without the net. Make sure you have a ball that is relatively simple to keep in the air. It’s going to be hard with something too heavy like a tennis ball for example. Try and stop the ball from touching the ground for as long as you can. The more players, the harder it will be.
