Shotover Jet Ride, Queenstown
Hop on board the original Shotover River jet boat adventure that has injected a shot of adrenaline into over three million people since 1965. Know you're getting the best of the best as you shoot up the Shotover River's sheer rock-faced canyons, with the only company permitted to operate there. Experience 360 degree spins, hair-raising close calls with the canyon walls, and some of the most incredible views you'll see in your lifetime as you skim across as little as 10cm of water at speeds of up to 85kph. A complimentary shuttle operates from The Station Info Centre up to every 15 minutes, and you will be provided with lifejackets and splash coats before boarding the jetboats. Restrictions apply on passenger height and health, and what can be taken onboard the jetboats, so make sure you check these beforehand.
