Don’t miss the chance to ride the Beast. Visitors rave about this high-speed, high-energy “sightseeing” speedboat ride around New York City’s harbor and the Hudson River (How fast is it? Blink and you might miss the sights!) Equipped with two 2,600 horsepower engines, and 90 speakers, this is a loud, whirlwind of a ride that you’ll never forget.
Do you have the courage to board the Beast? New York City’s Circle Line Sightseeing at 42nd Street brings you the rare opportunity to embark on a real thrill ride, right in the waters off Manhattan. Your captain will take you on a high-speed, 30-minute ride through the city’s world-famous harbor, past iconic sights like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, all while treating you to a roller coaster of a boat ride that is guaranteed to get your heart pounding and bring you to the edge.
The Beast, Manhattan’s fastest and largest speedboat, is “awakened” between October and May of each year (due to temperatures, it is not in operation during the winter season). During this high season, the cruise operates between 10:00am and 6:00pm, with a special schedule operating on July 4th. Please note that passengers must be at least 40” or 100cm tall to ride the Beast, and expectant mothers are not allowed on board. This cruise does not operate when it rains, due to high speeds….while getting a little wet may be expected, no one wants you to go home drenched, cold and miserable!
