Terrific ride! It was only 25% as exciting as the open boat ride, but much drier. This ride allows you to take photos, which cannot be taken on the open boat ride. This ride is terrific for those with small children, those wanting to stay dry, and those desiring to take photos. You do ride the rapids, but in the dryness of the closed boat.

This is a great alternative to the boats that leave you soaked with water from the Niagara Lake. The domed jet went through the same rapids and also included some great historical facts about the local geography of Niagara.

The jet boat ride was exhilarating!! The tour guide was amazing, and thorough about the history of Niagara Falls. They stopped numerous times for picture opportunities. They even did some bonus runs, which made the ride longer which I thought was generous. Overall, a great experience and highly recommend it to anyone who plans a trip to Niagara Falls!! It's a must do ride!!!

It was a very good trip.. We chose the domed boat just to stay dry.. If you want to get wet then definitely ride on the open boat. You will not be disappointed..
