Absolutely Fantastic, an absolute must.

Arrived thinking the rain could cancel our Jet boat ride. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Rain stopped so time to go. OMG what a fantastic experience!!! So much fun, couldn't stop laughing. Scary in parts as the "captain of the Jet Boat" was an excellent driver but gave out hearts a scary flutter :) I recommend this ride 110%. You come off saying you want more and we will certainly be back again for sure. Thank you for the pictures, they will bring back the happy, fun, scary, soaking wet memories of the ride. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK GOLDFIELDS JET. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ p.s. take a spare set of clothes, you will get soaked !!!!
