Had a fab 1 hour rib ride that will put a smile on anyone's face. Sion our guide was great, speed and doughnuts were real fun, we wanted them to last longer. Still, can always go again as it left us wanting more.

We did this last week whilst in Wales with our two boys aged 10 and 6, and an even bigger boy to be honest.

This is an excellent way to experience the Menai Strait in all its formidable glory. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable, the ride was exciting, and the commentary was informative. Definitely one of the best activities in North Wales.

Had this ride for a 50th birthday present. It was brilliant. Stopped to see the gorgeous houses on the Straits and had the full speed ride. Can't wait to go again

It can sometimes be difficult to please a thrill seeking 12 year old and a studious 14 year old at the same time but this trip hit the spot. What a great team, all friendly and helpful. And the trip itself (we did Seals and Puffins) was tremendous. Our 12 year old thrill seeker got to sit in the front... More
