My friends and I had some time to kill before we headed home from a camping trip in the dells. We had all done the ducks in the past but thought we'd try the jet boat for something different. The tour was a good mix of fun and learning. The music was awesome and went really well with the crazy... More

Myself and 10 y/o daughter rode. It was one of the favorite things we did there! Got soaked! Sat in the front. Dont bother taking towels on board, have dry clothes in your car, you can change there. Theyll give you a safe place for your phone, keys. Dont try to take pictures, only have a couple small opportunities. Guide... More

One of the most fun things we did on our whole trip! We were given a heads up to not bring anything we didn't want to get soaked, and thank goodness because we got drenched! Our driver was educational, and very funny! I will go on the Wildthing everytime i go to the dells from now on!

Great time on a hot afternoon! Got completely soaked and totally enjoyed the speed and the music. Entire family of 4 was pleased with the ride. Just wish it could've been longer!

What a great way to explore the river. We have always done the duck tours in the past and wanted to try something new this year. The kids loved the speed, and getting sprayed with water. We were warned you get wet, and you do get wet, very wet!

Having previously been a huge fan of Captain Ron's Jet Boats I was sad to see they weren't around anymore, but wanted my friend I was travelling with to experience the Upper Dells Jet Boats so decided on Wildthing and what a great decision that was! Wildthing was a lot of fun, you still get to see all the important... More

My 11 year old son and I went on the ride at 6:30 on Thursday night. We had read the reviews and expected to get soaked...bought ponchos and everything. Silly as it sounds I am only giving the tour a 4....because we didn't get wet. I think it might be due to the fact that the boat wasn't full. It... More

A fun filled hour on the river. Guide was funny, and kept our attention. Almost everyone on the ride got wet at some point. Definitely would do again.
