Comments about Smart Destinations :

Gave this as a gift to my husband. It was everything it promised to be, fast, thrilling, you get a little wet depending on where you sit and if you're not a fan of 80's music at high volumes this might not be for you. But it was a lot of fun, a great way to see the city and cool down from the heat! Be warned if you're someone who isn't a fan of rollercoasters this might be too much for you but if you like fast pace turns, an entertaining guide and the water, you'll love it!
