I liked that they take you on the bus down to the river to board the jet boat. There is a waiting area to get on the boat where they offer to take your photo but they weren't pushy about it if you weren't interested. I was told that we were definitely going to get wet so I left all... More

Me and my family were in the Dells area for a week. Of all the activities, the jetboat tour was the highlight (at least for me). It was both relaxing and exciting. The driver did plenty of stops and turns, so as to make sure we got plenty wet. It was fun. Would definitely do this again the next time... More

Way more fun than regular boat tours, and still informational. We had a blast here. You will get wet, but if you sit front row center you can stay almost completely dry tucking up to the windshield. This was the best way to get an information tour, and a fun exhilarating experience. We enjoyed getting to the different talking points... More

My wife and I weren't sure if we actually wanted to do the jet boats or not and we definitely weren't sure which Jet Boat tour to go on. Well after reading reviews here on Tripadvisor, we chose Wildthing Jet Boats. We decided to go late in the day and so we called and reserved the 6:30 trip. We arrived,... More

Loved loved this. If you would like to take a tour of the upper dells water area but just not into a normal boat tour then do this. Lots of fun- yes you will get wet from a little to soaked. Goes slow and fast. Plays fun up beat music to fit in with the boat ride and the areas.

We had a young man visiting from Germany and thought this would be a fun way for him to see the Dells from the water. He was 16 years old and loved it. I knew we would get wet so wear something that is quick drying or bring a change of clothes. They do have waterproof containers under the seats... More

Noah's Ark is what brought my boyfriend and I to Wisconsin Dells but the Wildthing jetboat ride was what made the weekend fabulous. Our capitan was hilarious and the ride itself was action packed with high speeds and fun splashes. Wildthing was both the cheapest and most exciting part of my trip. I highly recommend!

Be ready to get soaked! This boat will do 360's and nose dives resulting in everyone getting soaked. Along the way you will learn some fun facts about the dells from your tour guide. The first row does have a wind shield but even that can't help you from getting wet so be prepared to bring a towel in your... More

Our captain Kenny was friendly and had that good old Wisconsin humor. Lots of splashes and very wet. Awesome! Lots of 360's. :) A must go!
