Awesome, unique experience. You will get wet so if you have kids that cry upon getting splashed, please keep them back (we had a kid crying the entire time behind us-but we still had a blast!

I went on tour with some friends back in June with Captain Craig, and we had an awesome time! Captain Craig was an awesome tour guide and we loved every time he shouted "hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on!" as we hit power turns. Thanks for a great time!

In my opinion, these jet boats are just awesome. I want one! You will get wet. The first time we were on these boats, my daughter was 5. Shes 12 now. It was maybe 70 out and sunny. No jackets. It felt warm. After a few of the power stops, we were soaked... and COLD. Despite my daughter's jaw clackin... More

We were lucky enough to get the newest Wild Thing boat, this one boasts 1500hp. Our pilot was great and showed us interesting sights in between the high speed runs, power stops and 360 spins (he hollers out "hang on hang on hang on" so it's not unexpected and quite safe). There seems to be multiple jet boat rides, this... More

I had a great experience when I went on the Jet Boat Tour with my spouse! We sat in the front row assuming that we wouldn't get as wet as the other riders towards the back... And I was wrong! The music on the boat was great, so I danced (with my hands) for the whole ride! At one point... More

We called in advance because we had 8 in the group. It was a great ride and the kids loved getting wet. Slides and power stops did the job in the water department. It was a nice long ride, fast and some slow.

This was an add on attraction for us that we got in a package deal. It was getting pretty chilly that evening when we went out but we didn't care. We had a blast!!! Not to mention that we saw some beautiful scenery to top it all off! Don't miss out on this one!

We had an online coupon for this, so we went. It's a lot of fun! Sitting closer to the sides seems to get you wetter. And you get really wet, anyway! Wear a swimsuit, and have a towel in the car. But this is one of the best things in the dells!

We have driven by the Wisc. Dells countless times and never have gone into the actual Wisconsin River into the Dells until this last weekend. What a kick of joy, water spray, speed, good and safe fun with the staff, and up-close encounter with nature. Wow, it costs a bit of money, but why not once? We suggest: do it!

Saw the Dells, got soaked, learned a little history. Our Captain did a great job of making sure we got wet, did many 360 degree turns, and also pointed out many of the great scenic spots along the Dells. Wonderful little excursion in The Dells.
