Your experience starts as soon as you arrive in the stunning Kawarau Gorge and are greeted by one of our fun and friendly staff. After a full safety briefing, head down the banks of the mighty Kawarau River and step aboard one of our purpose built V8 jet boats - your adrenaline journey is about to begin. Your highly trained driver will navigate the shallow, braided waters of the Bannockburn arm at epic speeds. Power up stream through the breathtaking narrow Kawarau Gorge, racing past canyon walls before arriving at the base of the impressive Staircase Rapids. The only ride to offer shallow water and deep rapids in one adrenaline filled hit, with multiple 360 spins thrown in. No need to look anywhere else - Experience the best.
