We were fortunate to experience the ThamesJet boat ride in London over the summer holidays. The children absolutely loved it (Aged 11 & 12)! Not only was the experience educational but thrill seeking too! We arrived at Westminster Pier to a highly professional set up and were given life jackets and a talk before we boarded the speed boat – a very slick operation and felt safe from the outset.
After boarding the 12 seat speed boat, off we went up the River Thames and were given a mine of information about the landmarks from a recording – in a cockney accent & funny too, which of course added to the experience. The speed boat opened now and then – almost teasing us with what was about to come!!!
Once The River Thames opened up near Canary Wharf that was it!! Adrenaline rush!! The Speedboat went full force and OFF WE WENT!! James bond sound track pumping out of the speaker, bouncing up and down/side to side and going at great speed! All I could hear on the boat were screams (happy ones) and laughter.
Everyone really thoroughly enjoyed it & I would highly recommend. My eldest has asked if we can come back with her friends which I am excited to do so. ThamesJet even offers a Birthday parties – what a fantastic and different Birthday experience! Highly recommended by Lets Go with the Children!
LGWTC Guidance: Everyone really thoroughly enjoyed it & I would highly recommend.
