The Beast – Speedboat Ride

The Beast rides are available from may onwards annually.  When May comes around, 138 passengers will be reminded to “Hang on!”. This jet-powered racing boat accelerates from 0 to more than 70 km/hour in a matter of seconds. Your captains, Mad Dog, and Wild Thing take you on an exciting, adrenaline-fueled ride across the New York Harbor. “The Beast” will also make a quick stop at the Statue of Liberty for a close-up photo opportunity. This might be the fastest way to get a close-up to Miss Liberty.

Get your adrenaline fix here – guaranteed! This exciting adventure has the New York skyline as the backdrop and is an absolute thrill to take part in! When it’s warm in New York City (The Beast does not ride in the rain) this is the best thing you can do for a refreshing switch up from the heat of the city. Besides the amazing view of Manhattan skyline, you’ll see famous Brooklyn Bridge, New Jersey Skyline and lower Manhattan. Please note your children have to be at least 1 meter in height to board.
