“Fantastic ride with fantastic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Went for a ride on the river with New River Jet Boats located at Hawks Nest State Park in Ansted, WV. It was a little pricey but what isn't these days. The view of the New River Gorge Bridge was amazing and the ride through the gorge to get to the bridge was interesting. We saw an eagle and a deer along the way. Our guide told a few corny jokes but he was very friendly. An overall enjoyable experience!

“Over priced, tourist trap but okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Like many tourist trap type activities this is over priced. For the money, I recommend a raft trip or take the drive for free under and around the bridge. Its okay for something to do.

“Ok but expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I gave a review for tram and jet boat rides under Hawks Nest State park. The ticket is expensive but it is ok once in a life time to see and take pictures of the bridge from below. The visitors area for the park was good and big.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

We really enjoyed the jet boats! The captain is really funny and short trip up the river to view the bridge is relaxing.
