This place totally sucked. The staff talked in the beginning for like 5 minutes. After that, they placed music but you really couldn't hear the music. You knew there was music because they had 2 girls dancing. The girls didn't even smile and they acted...More

This ride is full of fun and Adventure but prepare to get wet. You ride the boat at a high speed out into the bay.

This is a rocking good time-literally! The boat takes you out on the bay at a high speed and you "rock" to upbeat rock style music. You will get wet so be ready for that. We enjoyed our trip on the Beast and you will...More

Quick ride on a speed boat to cool off and see the coastline from the water. Be prepared to get very wet or ask where to sit if you prefer not to. The staff was entertaining.

So much fun! Be prepared to get SOAKED! Felt great in the hot July weather. The ride is about 20 mins and worth every penny for the kids.

What an exciting ride. Better hold on and prepare to get wet...if you are sitting in the middle or the back. This is opposite of what you would think but we sat near the very front of the boat and were one of the few...More

We had a fun time but no if you’ve already got a boat this isn’t worth the money ($20 for adults, $15 for kids 12 & under). Staff was great, Madison was the entertainer for our ride. She stands in the center and dances to...More
