Not a bad hour out on the water. We were sitting in the front row so was a bit underwhelming. Try sit in the back row to get more of the action. We got to about 90km/hr and did some great spins. I think kids would enjoy this.
I would recommend a beanie/ear warmers and sunglasses. The hand rails are heated so gloves aren't really necessary

KJet take you on the lake and then two rivers with different characteristics. The driver made a special effort to make it exciting with 360 degree spins and weaving in and out of obstacles on the river. Great fun.

$100 for an hour ride in a jet boat - however, it does not deliver on the thrills it advertises. An average experience.

It was nice to do once, but very expensive. Also, it was not much action, less than expected.
