jet boats- open or closed?

I have been reading all the comments regarding the wet jet boat ride, there aren't very many on the enclosed ride. I would appreciate any comments on which is better. It sounds like the only difference is wet or dry? Which would be better for myself and 3 boys ages 15, 13, and 10. Also, any problems with sea sickness? Thank you!

With teens, wet is the only way to go. It's a lot of fun.

Perhaps the reason for fewer comment on dry is that it's newer.

YES to WET! ! ! Try to sit as close to front as possible. This is the best of the wet seats. and NO NO NO to seasickness. The rain slickers they have are a waste of time because ANY WHERE you sit you are going to get wet, leave them at the dock. You kids will love this trip, absolutely!!

The Dome jet boat give you a differant look at the water, because you get to SEE the water just over your head flowing away and it does look neat. But the wet boat is the best. Have fun and GET WET!!!

Might add that yes the wet way is the best, if its nice and warm or hot. But if its 55 degress outside, well I pick the enclosed ride. Niagara is a great city but it is pretty far north and even in the summer time has cool days. I would wait until you know what the weather is once you are there.

As for sea sickness, it depends on the person. Think your boys should be fine but you never know if they never been on the water. I would think the ride is rough like a jet ski but you need not to hang on.
