My 8 and 12 year olds sons loved the jet boat ride- even though it the snow that was hitting their face felt like bullets and they were freezing cold. The jet boat captain was friendly and informative. He has amazing skills to weave in and out so closely to the river's edge- which thrilled and terrified my kids! We enjoyed how long this event went and the pick up shuttle bus saved us having to worry about how to get there.
Exhilarating experience....worth every penny and a must do. Puts all the other jet boat rides in the shadows.
Awesome it is a must do in Queenstown our driver was fantastic how he manouvers through the rocky cliffs
AMAZING just do it
took our 11 year old granddaughter on her fist trip to Queens town from Australia this was her favourite part . well done.
Location of the shotoverjet is amazing. Staff were excellent and our ride was exhilarating. If your after a rush go for it. Head to Arrowtown after for a chill out.
Great fun and I thorougyhly enjoyed myself - very skilled driver who took us very close to the cliffs but we didn't feel scared at all. I wanted to do a second ride (at an extremely good price) but time didn't permit - so glad we got to experience it and would recommend it to anyone of any age
A great white knuckle ride with a top rate company who put safety first.
Every bit as good as the video from the website suggests! And logistics were very easy - getting there and coming back.
We did the sunrise special which was fantastic. It was everything we had read about and more. The whole experience from getting on the shuttle, onto the jetboat and back to Queenstown was fuss-free and easy. Didn't get as wet as we thought we might. We all thought it was awesome and something you absolutely have to do whilst there.
So awesome. Never been so cold in my entire life. But very worth it!!! :)
It was a thrill ride from top to bottom! Most excellent!! I kept thinking, I wish my boys could have been here to ride it - they would have loved it!!
This was a fun experience. You will most likely get wet at some point - sit in the middle to get the least wet. Where sunglasses as you are going fast and it's hard to keep your eyes open otherwise. The drivers are amazing.
