I wanted to take one of the tour boats that are much bigger than this Rocket Boat. The Rocket Boat goes at about a 55 mile speed. The captain makes sharp turns, sudden stops, makes it bounce up and down, and makes it spins in circles for about 30 minutes. It was great. I laughed all the way through it.
