Wow wow wow

What an amazing experience. Lake Wakatipu was a bit choppy so we got a bit wet and bounced around on our way to smoother water but this was great fun and make the ride really exciting. The dirver was informative stopping a few times for photo's at some beautiful places. The Kawarau Rive was smooth and clear with the scenery to die for. Lots of 360 spins with the water splashes cooling us down on a hot windy day. Loved it and would recommend Thunder Jet, we enjoyed it more that the Shotover Jet that we went on a few years ago.

Best Jet Boat ride in Queenstown

Myself and three daughters (14,11and 9) all agree this was our favourite jet boat ride in Queenstown. The music was awesome, the views down the Frankton Arm of Lake Wakatipu were stunning and I personally loved looking at the million dollar houses on the side of the lake as we zoomed by. And then the ride was made even more stunning when we left the lake, zoomed under the bridge and onto the Kawarau river. Lots of 360’s made for lots of squeal of delight from us all. Thanks Thunder Jet - an awesome school holiday treat!
