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.
