Be perpared to get very wet!!

It was a great boat ride but be prepared. When I say wet, I mean "wet". The ride lasts about 20 minutes and is fun.

The Boardwalk beast is an open-air boat ride around the bay at Kemah, taking off from the Boardwalk. During the summer, be sure to bring hats as the sun can roast. The ride is made thrilling by the synchronized (quirky) dancing of the boat attendants and the witty commentary that provides a history of the bay area. Good for the... More

The beast is a fun ride for everyone, it takes you into Galveston Bay and its s high speed boat ride with music... More

Everyone will enjoy a nice speed boat ride across Galveston Bay. Our kids have enjoyed this since they were small, and still like it into their teens. Be prepared to get sprayed as the boat twists and turns. If it is a hot day, the spray will be very refreshing.

Its ok for the money you spend its ok. The rides need to be longer and it would prolly be better if they had more boats doing that. I rode it once and thats it I wont ride it again.
