Wow, what a way to spend a birthday. Fantastic thrills and spills and 360 turns. Jeremy was funny, friendly and very informative. He made sure the grandchildren were okay which was great. Would do it again tomorrow

If you like speed, water and doing donuts this is something everyone should do. The drivers were friendly and funny. Expect to get wet.

The wind was cold but that didn't stop us enjoying this 30min jet boat ride in a pristine part of the mighty Waikato river. I do have one complaint though. We had actually booked for the day before but when we turned up they told us that they won't be going out today due to the weather. I would have... More

First jet boat ride I had been on and it was awesome! Enjoyed every second of it. The driver Jeremy was a classic joker and had lots of good laughs as well. Definitely worth it, you won't regret this thrill fulled fun time :D

This is a really really good attraction. The ride itself is amazing and frightened the life out of me. The staff were excellent and the "driver" of the Jet boat was very professional and offered a great mix of humour and information about the river and the Falls. I will return again some day!!!

This trip up to the Huka Falls is a MUST do in Taupo. One of the most exhilarating things I've ever done. We booked ours through 'book me NZ' and got a great discount. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. The guy that drove the boat knew his stuff. Best 30 minutes of my life! Tip do the 3:30pm trip... More
