This entertaining speedboat ride is one of the most thrilling things to do in New York City. It’s a wild ride aboard “The BEAST,” a custom-built vessel with pumping music and comedic narration. Zoom toward the Statue of Liberty and screech to a halt for a photo op, then hold on for plenty of splash-filled twists and turns.
  • Enjoy splashy action aboard the BEAST speedboat in NYC
  • See the city skyline of midtown and lower Manhattan
  • Get up close to Lady Liberty for photo ops
  • A must-do experience for adrenaline junkies
