  • This was a waste of $20. I asked the workers where the best place to sit was. They said the middle to the front. I asked, "So the front is good?" They said, "Yes". I sat in the front and it was no more than a regular jet boat ride. It wasn't very bumpy and they didn't do a lot of maneuvers. You have to sit at least 2 or 3 rows back in order to get the effect of the "water wall". At least that's what I'm calling it. No one told me about this before I went on. I had to keep turning around to see what was going on. This was something on my bucket list and I'm extremely disappointed.
  • Extremely fun! Must try! Best part of Kemah Boardwalk in my opinion. You get soaked thanks to the boat going fast, turning and slowing irregularly. And all this is happening while you are listening to upbeat music and watching crew members dance. It is amazing!
  • The best part of the Kemah Boardwalk is the Boardwalk Beast. My only suggestion is that they elongate the ride by 10 minutes and drive a bit faster. As a native Mainer, I expected a lot more speed and time out on the Bay.
  • The ride was a lot of fun and there was a ton of singing, clapping, and laughter on my boat. Only complaint is that when we bought the ticket they said the ride would be around 25-30 minutes. I feel like the "ride" was more like 15 minutes. The rest of the time was going out to the water and coming back.
  • Wow, you really get drenched if you sit towards the sides. Very fast ride with music pumping lets loose that crazy child in all of us!!
