This is a must in the Dells! The ride is so fun and educational, but the guides are super friendly and a lot of fun! We had a great time on this adventure!

Next time just take a nice slow tour of the Dells. It might be just as fast. While the quick turns and fast stops were fun the actual speed part of the trip was dull. I think the "Speed" was maybe 30 mph tops.

What a blast - first experience at something like this. Power stops and spins at 45 mph, some of which occurred in river channels no more than 70 feet wide I'd guess. I would recommend going during temperatures above 75 as YOU WILL GET WET.
