Average

Long way from best jet boat experiences we have had but was okay. Didn't get wet doing spins. Driver said after if you want to get wet go with someone else. Extremely steep access so not good for anyone that struggles with down and uphill walking. We got it dirt cheap so passed but wouldn't pay anything like full price.
