Best thing I did in New Zealand This is a must do for anyone visiting the North island. Brilliant experience and a great adrenaline rush. Well organised company and friendly staff. The power of the boat was phenomenal especially when it went through the Rapids. Beautiful stretch of the Waikato river to go down as well. If you are thinking of doing a boat trip while in the area then do this one.
Couldn't stop smiling! Absolutely fantastic, adrenalin rushing all round great time. Very safe. Fully professional service. Had a few stops along the way for info on the river. Heaps of 360 spins. Great value. Usb can be bought of all pics and video they take of you for just $40. Well worth it. Have a go, you'll love it!
We had a cracking time at Rapids Jet boat! We've been on some other jet boat rides in NZ, Australia and Fiji and this we easily the best. The power and the speed which our driver Simon navigated the rapids was spectacular, and in between the rapids either doing 360s or just flying across the flat water at top speed was awesome. We had our 7yo boy on the boat and he had a ball. The round trip up and down the river goes for 35 minutes and they make every second count going up and down the rapids or short breaks with some great insight about the river. The heated hand rails also a nice touch if its cold on the river. Thanks you Simon and the team. Highly recommend.
Family school holidays wow Took our nine year old and he loved it. Great way to finish the school holidays, Shannon our driver was awesome will be back for anther adventure.
Absolutely must do!! My boyfriend and I really loved this rapid jet experience. It's an expensive activity compared to other things to do in the area but we highly recommend that it's worth the money!! If you're in Lake Taupo area, this is a must do. Thanks to our driver who was excellent and explained a lot about the area and the boat we were on. Loved it!
Great experience.Staff were friendly and informative. Our driver Shannon made you feel safe and comfortable whilst showing how exciting it could be.Horrible weather, next time would love for you to turn on the sunshine please!Highly recommended, great to have photos of the ride to look back on.Would do again in a heartbeat.
My Tongariro Crossing trek got canceled so I was finding something else to do last minute to fill the time. Great online booking at 6am I was able to get a spot later in the day. Really friendly crew and super fun 30-35min spent on the riverReview from Justin V, USA
Best birthday treat on a wet day 17th birthday skydive called off due to weather. Went down to Rapid Jet to see if we could get a ride [having done Huka Falls jet previously] and the team at Rapid Jets could not have been more understanding or welcoming. They made everything easy and the kids totally loved the ride.......35 minutes of adrenaline charged fun leading to HUGE smiles when they got back....and an awesome photo package for not huge $$$$ Well done!
What an amazing experience. Awesome company. Shannon was awesome driver and highly informative. Highly recommend to everyone. Thanks heaps guys, we will be back
YES! BY FAR the best Jet Boat company I've ever been on. Lots of information of movies being set in the area, all of the team has great genuine customer service, the location feels hidden & less commercial. It's a great time and although a wild ride, I felt safe at all times & I don't think anyone would leave this place disappointed./div>
