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.

The ride was awesome! If you have Tweens or older this is a MUST! Speed, wetness, and history lesson in an action packed fun hour.

Awesome, unique experience. You will get wet so if you have kids that cry upon getting splashed, please keep them back (we had a kid crying the entire time behind us-but we still had a blast! The music is rocking while your cruising the river, with scenic views along the way. The front dives of the boat are the best... More

I went on tour with some friends back in June with Captain Craig, and we had an awesome time! Captain Craig was an awesome tour guide and we loved every time he shouted "hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on!" as we hit power turns. Thanks for a great time!

In my opinion, these jet boats are just awesome. I want one! You will get wet. The first time we were on these boats, my daughter was 5. Shes 12 now. It was maybe 70 out and sunny. No jackets. It felt warm. After a few of the power stops, we were soaked... and COLD. Despite my daughter's jaw clackin... More

We were lucky enough to get the newest Wild Thing boat, this one boasts 1500hp. Our pilot was great and showed us interesting sights in between the high speed runs, power stops and 360 spins (he hollers out "hang on hang on hang on" so it's not unexpected and quite safe). There seems to be multiple jet boat rides, this... More

I had a great experience when I went on the Jet Boat Tour with my spouse! We sat in the front row assuming that we wouldn't get as wet as the other riders towards the back... And I was wrong! The music on the boat was great, so I danced (with my hands) for the whole ride! At one point... More
