Thames Rocket was an absolutely brillaint experience. Booking was easily made on the internet and when I had to change my booking nothing was to much trouble. My family and I enjoyed every minute of the very fast ride upto Grenwich and the Thames barrier and back . Staff were very accomodating and great fun. Would highly recommend

My husband & children (9 & 6 yrs old) throughly enjoyed our trip. Rory our guide was full of energy, humour & knowledge. The blasting music particularly added to the experience to us (baywatch, & Bond) especially during the speedy twists and turns. We all learnt many historical facts too. Thank you for a memorable making moment!

I love speed boat rides and this was no exception. I took my two children aged 15 & 10 on this and it was awesome.
