Testimonials

Rapids Jet staff were fantastic, down to earth, lots of fun. The ride itself is great, with a few stops along the way for the driver to talk you through some of the movie locations in this spot (namely The Hobbit) and about the river. It was informative and fun. Lots of 'rapids' to jet over.

Our boat ride with Simon was awesome. We're pretty sure he thinks he has the best job on the planet! He knew the area well and relayed interested facts while joking around and getting us all wet. We would do it again in a heartbeat!

Took my Sister and our Nephew and Niece from America today on this ride. I have done a lot of Jet Boating and this experience rates right up there as one of the best I've ever experienced.. From the great professional friendly staff, to the beautifully balanced boat, to the driver who was awesome. The thrills of going down the rapids, 180 degree turns, fast boating, exciting driving, to learning some of the history of the river and surrounding area. This is an experience I would recommend for any one as one TO DO if your coming to Taupo.

This was my second visit for another thrilling experience over the rapids and exhilarating 370 degree spins. The staff are very friendly and obliging and our driver Simon was awesome. He was knowledgeable about the history of the river and area including the movies made in the location. His driving was exceptional and the ride through and over the rapids was 'out of this world'. In my opinion this was more fun than the rides I've had on the Huka jet. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

What a hoot! The driver had the perfect balance of driving/talking - who knew these things went just 10cm above water. Great heated bars, healthy bit of thrill - absolutely stunning location. Total mix of white water rafting and jetskis.
