Great experience, lots of excitement. The journey up was great too! Knowledgeable driver and funny. Jet boat was quality, shame it was over so quick.

The drive to Skippers Canyon was epic along the old goldmine track. Our driver was great up to the canyon with lots of stories and history about the place. The jet boat was ok, not as much of an adrenalin rush as I thought it would be.

Because we could ride and see Skippers Canyon as extra on top of the jetride itself. Very professionally done.

Good use for more mature customer, good history lesson on the drive there and back and the original bungy. However, not enough time on the water, and too much stopping whilst on the water.
