Circle Line The BEAST Speedboat Ride

Adult Price From: $30.00
Child Price From: $25.00

Be sure to brave "The Beast" - New York's very own thrilling speedboat ride! 

Your daring captain will take you for a wet n' wild ride through the New York harbor on  New York City's only jet-powered thrill ride attraction. You'll reach heart racing speeds while twisting, turning and skimming toward the Statue of Liberty.

Hold onto your hat and get ready for the ride of your life because for 30 fun-filled minutes you'll be soaring past the skyscrapers at a heart-pounding 40 knots (about 45 mph)! It's like a rollercoaster on the water and chances are very good that you will get wet. 

While you are out in the harbor you will also stop for a close-up of the Statue of Liberty where you'll have a quick photo-op. 

It's loud, it's fast, it's extreme, it's a pure thrill! 

Note: You must be at least 40" (102cm) tall to ride "The Beast." The boat travels at high speeds and bounces around so nobody who is pregnant, has a heart condition or back injuries should ride.
