i want to say thank you to everyone that helped me and my family with the arrangements for my dads last boat ride, before dad passed, he had said that he wanted to be spread out to sea, and he wanted to go out on the beast, actually, he called it the tiger boat, we researched it, saw the original "Beast", with the brite and inviting, fun colors on it, i knew that it was what dad was talking about, my husband and i decided to go to the boardwalk, when we approached the dock we were in shock, the boat was red, white and blue, i dealt with it, and mentioned my distaste in what was at the dock and what was online, the day before dads celebration, we took another trip to the boardwalk, and there she was, the one dad wanted, brought out of retirement for a few days, i was never so happy in this time of sorrow, the staff was wonderful, arranged for the boat to leave earlier than normal with just friends and family able to board the boat, i must say, i cant thank all these individuals enough, you made my dad happy through me, we arranged the music, and it all went really well,,thank you, thank you, thank you!!

What an exciting ride. Better hold on and prepare to get wet...if you are sitting in the middle or the back. This is opposite of what you would think but we sat near the very front of the boat and were one of the few on the ride that were still dry. Great ride on a fast boat!

This ride is so exciting. This thing goes so fast and spins on its nose. I took my dad on this ride and he wanted to go back on it again. It was a great experience for the whole family.

This place totally sucked. The staff talked in the beginning for like 5 minutes. After that, they placed music but you really couldn't hear the music. You knew there was music because they had 2 girls dancing. The girls didn't even smile and they acted like they absolutely hated their job. It was obvious they didn't want to be there so no one paid any attention to them. They seemed like they were resentful high school cheerleader dropouts. It was extremely horrible. We were counting the moments for it to end!

YMCA dancing and fun. Took grandkids and everyone enjoyed the fast crazy boat ride to the fun dancing singing young ladies. And oh getting wet is just part of the fun, so pony up and get on the Beast and enjoy life. Come on down

If you don't want to get wet, sit near the back! If you have motion sickness, DO NOT GO ON THIS RIDE! Some children may be scared.

This is a rocking good time-literally! The boat takes you out on the bay at a high speed and you "rock" to upbeat rock style music. You will get wet so be ready for that. We enjoyed our trip on the Beast and you will too!

I enjoyed the ride but I assure you the ride is not 25 minutes long. It was about 10 min.
We left the dock at around 4:05. And we were back on solid ground docked and exiting the boat at 4:25.
It was disappointing 😡
But the ten minutes you are out on the water is fun.

This big boat is slower than my 18ft searay and does nothing but go out about a mile and turn around. I can do that myself and not spend the money.
