The Beast is the ride to beat! This speedster is one the attractions here in Kemah. The ride lasts about 30-45 minutes off the coast of Kemah. Staff dances on while the Beast speeds off. Great and fun ride for the whole family!

The ride was fun for the kids and they loved that it was loud and they got wet. I'm not a huge feminist but if they're going to have a girl dancing in the aisle during the ride they should also have a guy - I kinda felt sorry for the girl dancing like she was on display.

A fast, wet experience. Lot's of fun. Quite breath taking. Would recommend. If you sit at the front or on the side of the boat, you WILL get wet. A nice sunny day needed to dry off afterwards. Staff fun, singing and dancing .We went quite a long way out from the shore. Great for teens, would not recommend for... More

My girls (8 & 4) had an absolute blast! It's worth doing at least once. The girls dancing in the aisle can make or break the ride. Fortunately, the one closest to us was smiling, dancing and having fun, so in turn, my kids were dancing and having fun. The other girl dancing looked like she didn't even want to... More

What a fun way to see the gulf! We had a blast and got soaked at the same time. If you like adventure I highly recommend taking a ride on this boat.

Get ready for some wet fun. The ride is kinda short but it lets you cool off and you can take squirtguns on to shoot at the staff. It is lots of fun for everyone

We arrived at Kemah on a whim. We arrived at the boardwalk and we're looking for something to do for our oldest daughter. She is in a wheelchair and has some sensory issues. We first asked the two girls collecting tickets if it would be possible to even take her onboard. They were more than helpful suggesting we take the... More

This was one of the best, fastest and tallest wooden roller coasters that I have ever been on. Just when you think it has to be the end, there is another curve and dip. Whew!!!

The boarkwalk beast is lots of fun and a great way to see Kemah from the water. It is expensive but lots of fun. You can also ride it out on Friday nights and watch the fireworks in the summer.

Big, loud, fast and wet. 9/10 you WILL get wet. High horsepower fun on Galveston Bay if not a bit touristy. Crew is professional, fun, and full of energy.
