Super quick injection of fun! - Exhilarating and fun experience. Went with my 10 year old neice who went from "I'm scared!" to "This is so much fun!" in a heartbeat. Perfect way to re-charge the batteries from walking endless sight seeing miles!

A water ceremony with a twist - We booked out a boat with family to hold a water ceremony for my Grandad (included spreading ashes, petals and note-lets) and the team who looked after us were absolutely fabulous from dock to water and back again. The team were completely led by what our wishes were; where to stop, which music to play and when to move on when it was finally time to say goodbye. …Then came the high speed ride. WOW! What an absolute thrill, even the oldest of the party (in their 90s) throughly enjoyed it! Lots of giggles and smiles - grandad would have loved it! Thank you to the team - Chris, Dennis and George for making this possible.

Poor!! - Unforeseen circumstances that happened after I had booked i.e protest in London leading to tube stations being closed last minute and roads being closed which left us not being able to travel by train to the venue and making booking a taxi last minute virtually impossible. Arrived only 15 mins late and told that boat had left and we couldn’t rearrange for another day or get a refund. Spoke to staff whilst on the way trying desperately to get there , only to be told nothing they can do and basically tough and basically we have lost £100 !!!! Will never use this company again! Really poor customer service and totally unacceptable !
