Comments about Smart Destinations SHARK Speedboat Thrill Ride:

To begin it was raining, as we got underway, pouring. It didn't matter. Everyone was singing along with the loud music, waving their arms and laughing. I never saw so much laughing. A summer camp of maybe 50 teens, a father and son, my grand daughter and me and a group of 4 friends all laughing and screaming as we got soaked to the skin. Later saw them all buying cheap clothes to go home in. It is a blast. Just wish the crew had a little more involvement other than saying when you yell we go faster and giving us a few tidbits of info on NYC. It was great. Since Circle Line owns it I would recommend they give a little "fun" training to the crew so they can compete with the Beast speedboat which is a party on the water.
