Took the hubby and my 2 boys (8yr old and 5yr old) for a spin. We opted to not wear the waterproof clothing company supplies as we stayed walking distance from attraction and quite happy to get changed if necessary. Family had fun getting a good soaking, laughing at eachother being collected by sea spray/spin wave on a ride that... More

Good fun. Staff helpful and jackets supplied essential. Timing just right. Best on a dry sunny day. Sitting at back ensures you get wet!

Staff very pleasant and happy. Great idea having splash jackets as you do get very wet. Freestyle part of trip lots of fun however, needed ongoing commentary from driver on slower parts of the trip to make it more interesting.

HI Tara, Thank you for your review of Jetboat Extreme. The back row always seems to get a wave of water over them at least once throughout the trip. We do supply coats just in case people would like to utilise them. Hope you enjoyed the experience . More

It would be much better if you can buy a day pass and go as many times as you like, I did not want to leave

Thank you for your review! It is definitely a ride you want to do over and over again, if we could offer a full day pass that would be great - unfortunately we would run out of seats. Hope to see you on the boat again soon! More

Declan was our thrillseeking driver of the Jetboat.☺ Not only did we get to see some of the sights along the river shore, but also some of the wildlife as well, which Declan shared interesting information about. He was a bit of a 'tease' leading us into a false sense of security & then with a flick of the boat... More

HI Elizabeth, Thank you for your review of Jetboat Extreme and Declan! He surely knows how to put that boat into a spin and ensure everyone get drenched and feels safe at the same time. It is a great way to see the Gold Coast and learn a few interesting facts along the way. See you next time! More

My family of 6 did the jet boat while on a short holiday. I don't think I've laughed so hard in all my life. We had the entire back row, starting out dry and ending totally drenched ... We had the best time of our lives and will 100% be doing it again. Everyone must try this at least once... More
