Goofy and fun

We live close to the boardwalk. This is fun to do with friends visiting from out of town. Fun ride out on the bay, singing, being goofy etc. Fun activity for the kids.

This attraction is for summer only. We went in March and they were closed. Most of Kemah Boardwalk was closed, except for the restaurants and several shops.

The Boardwalk Beast is a beautiful speedboat that goes out into the bay going fast, making sharp turns, and jumping waves, the whole time blasting Rock and Roll music!!! The employees dance on the deck, and lead the guests in having a great time!!! Rider Beware though-YOU WILL GET WET !!! Feels GREAT on a hot summer day!!!

If you enjoy speed and water you'll love this. Word of warning, if you don't want to get soaked do NOT sit in the back corners. Absolutely loved this little thrill ride

This never gets old, no matter how many times we go. The energy of the crew for the music/dancing was lacking this time, there was no real effort to engage the passengers and that detracted from the experience (not the norm we've experienced). be prepared to get wet (not just damp - WET) which is a great part of the...

Our first trip to Kemah was with my daughter and 12 year old grandson in August. My second trip was 2 weeks ago with my son, husband and 3 year old grandson. We all rode the beast and had such a wonderful time. Even the 3 year old was laughing so hard. It was a little better in Oct because... More

The ride was just awesome and you really get pretty wet. The speed gets your attention and the crew is pretty cool. The view of the shoreline is also great. Be sure not to miss this ride.

It was my husband's birthday so this is what he wanted to do. The price was reasonable, $20/person. The entire adventure lasted about 25 minutes, could have been a little longer. Overall it was fun.
