Not even the Sydney night life is as fast and fun as a Sydney jet boat thrill ride! Jet boats that are capable of carrying loads of 20 and 23 people are making a splash in the harbour. Organized groups can share the thrill of a jet boat thrill ride together. Family groups, large and small can experience the exuberance of these untamed speed behemoths.
The operators of the Sydney speed boats push their crafts to the limits to give every person on board an experience they’ll never forget. At full speed the boats zip along only to make a sudden stop, giving the riders the thrill of feeling they’re about to go end over end. But not to worry, these boats are super stable and capable of doing stunts such as these without flipping or tumbling.
Nothing will prepare you for the dizzying effects of 360 degree turns at these speeds! Ponchos will be provided, and you’ll be needing them as the boat hums along at high speeds only to make a left or right turn resulting in a slide that will make you think you’re on a roller coaster as the water comes in torrents! The Surround Sound Music System will make this rocking experience rock even more! With no “slow zones”, there will be nothing but fast moving excitement from start to finish.
Scoot past Sydney’s most famous landmark, the Opera House. You’ll see the Harbour Islands and ride into Rose Bay and Watson Bay. There’ll be some wild wave jumping in the ocean as you arrive at Sydney Heads. The trip back will take you by the Taronga Zoo. The jet boat glides under the picturesque Harbour Bridge allowing you to take in this feat of engineering from a close up vantage point of its underside.
