Hydro Attack, Queenstown

4.7
#32 of 157 in Outdoors in Queenstown
Head into the belly of the beast at Hydro Attack, a tour operator that takes you skidding over and under the waters in a shark-themed covered vessel. See Lake Wakatipu from above and below in a Seabreacher X watercraft, zipping across the waters at an intense 80 km/h (50 mph). Your driver will dive beneath the surface, take you leaping up into the air, then back down. The trip lasts 20 minutes, giving you a fresh perspective on the lake, the surrounding scenery, and what lies beneath. All visitors over six years of age can enjoy the experience.

  • Such a unique experience, completely different to anything I have ever done before! Best part was definitely going underwater and jumping out again! A must-do in QT!
  • Fantastic experience. It is something unique. You have to do this if you are in Queenstown. Even the kids aged 4 years did this adventurous activity. It is super fun to go dive inside and fly out. You actually feel the water pressure in your ears when the Hydro Attack Submarine dives below the water. Enjoyed a lot.
  • Amazing fun. A truly unique experience. A must try for all especially the adrenaline junkies.
  • Non Cooperative staff.... Only place where the local people were non-profit co-operative in Entire New Zealand trip of mine.... Hydro attack is not worth it compared to other joyful rides... Charges are very high & ride is not worth the amount spend on it at all. 1 star for the shark I sat. Atleast basic courtesy & co-operation is expected towards foreign tourists
  • Amazing. Actually, just amazing. Thrill seekers, do this. Otherwise wimp out. But don’t. Man up.
