THRILL NOT TO MISS! This is a locally owned JET BOAT EXPERIENCE on the RAPIDS which allows you to obtain a different perspective of the Waikato River - my elderly parents (77 years and 74 years) loved every adrenaline second of the thrills.We cant wait to share our experience with all our friends and family and I would encourage young and old to hop on board and share in the unique beauty and power that New Zealand has to offer.
Return visitor. Friendly, professional staff. No waiting around. Awesome ride. Highly recommend rapid jet.
Amazing fun! We deliberated between taking our friends to Huka and Rapid. We have done the Huka and Shotover previously. Huka and Shotover are really good fun! Rapid is great fun, exhilarating and so much better value for money! The staff are great and in particular Shannon our driver, who was amazing! Safe, informative and a fun character!Taupo tourism operators - Shannon is your benchmark how an employee should engage with tourists! Just brilliant!!
BRILLIANT TRIP! The massive number of excellent reviews really says it all. Efficient checking in, large waterproof coats and clear light glasses provided - very useful when you are travelling at 80kmh! Exhilarating 35 minute trip withsome commentary along the way but most importantly thrills and speed without ever feeling unsafe.
A MUST DO!!!!! Went on this today, absolutely brilliant. VERY friendly staff and a superb jet-boat ride. 5 stars from me *****
Just really Good fun! You never know how good something is going to be when you hand your money over but this was a great thrill.Dave our drive was great anymore lay back he would of fell out of the boat and the girls in the shop were great I received my photos no problemI would highly recommend this next time anybody travels to Taupo
Second time we have been on rapid jet and just as good if not better than when Dave took us 😳 🤪 Shannon took us on this trip he did a fantastic job very skillful driver and very entertaining great knowledge of the river and surrounding area, Rapid jet is awesome!!!Very well set up and professional in what they do, if you have been once and think oh I’ve already done it go and do it again it’s so cool the second time!!!! Thanks Rapid Jet
