My daughter and I did your jet boat ride in Queenstown this afternoon. It is our last day in New Zealand and were looking forward to ending our trip on a high with an exhilarating and fun jet boat ride with Kjet. Unfortunately our ride was neither of these things. Firstly the one hour ride ended up being only 45 minutes. The 45 minutes did not live up to our expectations in any way. I have been jet boating both in Queenstown and elsewhere and loved every minute of it but this ride was not exciting, thrilling or even interesting in any way. We did 5 360 degree spins and apart from that, it was simply a fast ride up and down very boring parts of both rivers. There was none of the advertised 'thrill'. We didn't go anywhere near rock faces or trees or anything else that was in the promotional video. We were both incredibly disappointed and it was a very poor way to end our holiday. Our driver seemed completely disinterested and the rest of the boat seemed to be equally disappointed in the ride. There was certainly no information about the local area, as mentioned in many reviews.

I feel we wasted our money and certainly would not recommend your company to others who wish to do a jet boat ride. Talking to others in Queenstown who had taken trips with other companies, their experiences were completely different to ours and they had the experience we were expecting.

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

Wow! What a thrill! Awesome! Pure adrenaline. The driver was excellent! Stopped in several spots with great professional explanation. The safety was great. The thrilling spins were great. Remember when you arrive they have also an aquarium! We want to go back for more! We recommend it. 👌🏼

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.
