A really fun experience, thoroughly enjoyed by our 7 yr olds-but ruined for the adults by the fact we were told the wait wd be 1 hour (which was fine), which turned into TWO hrs as they continued to put other families ahead of us in the queue, despite us enquiring several times what the delay was-and continuing to be fobbed off by ridiculous excuses.
How difficult is it to write a name on a white board, with a time beside it-and cross names off as you go...?? Hardly rocket science. Guess that's why these people run a BANANA BOAT for a living... We wont be back.

This has to be one of the best value entertainment deals around.
The scenic tour to Cooks Beach is great fun.
I would be wary of taking kids under around 7 on anything but the kids ride along the beach (which they will love) as the trips are quite long and the sea can be rougher than it looks so a lot of hanging on involved - fun for the adults and older kids but could be difficult for littlies .

If you're after an activity for anyone then give this a go. We had a 4 and 6 year old with us and went with dad on a kids ride with the kids and they loved it.. The older ones went on a thrill ride they also loved it.
