More fun than expected. You will get thrown into the water though (it’s only like 3 or 4 feet) I recommend getting goggles so you can see especially if you ride in the front. They go fast and you have to hold on tight!!!

We had a great time! Brady was very sweet and didn’t get too crazy per our request since it was our first time doing this. It was a bouncy splashy mess and we loved it!

We had a great time. The staff was friendly. Our boat drover was great. The trip was about 20 minutes. I did it with two 14 year olds, 2 11 year olds and a 10 year old. They loved it and wanted to do it again.
