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.

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.
