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.

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.
