  • Reach speeds of up to 90km/h and experience awesome spins

Reach lightening speeds during this action-packed jet boat ride along the Waikato River. You'll hold on tight as your highly-trained driver squeezes through the narrowest section of the river and plays in the pressure waves of the Nga Awa Purua rapids, with plenty of spins thrown in along the way.

You'll shoot through the narrowest canyon on the Waikato River, ride in the pressure waves of the Nga Awa Purua rapids (river of springs) and experience multiple twists and turns.
