Loud and Goofy - But not for Long

I have not ridden on this, but I've watched it countless times from shore. It looks like fun, but the water here is always cold - not like Hawaii or Florida. The company will be terminating this ride this year because they wanted to run 2 in parallel and the City Council and neighbors said no - too much noise.... More

It could have been great but sadly it was awful and a huge waste of money. The website says they will spend" ten minutes" training you how to fly, this did not happen. They asked us to arrive an hour early to learn the ropes and that didn't happen. We were instructed to watch a video first(at home) to learn... More

Alicia, thank you for sharing your feedback from your recent flight experience. I'm truly sorry it didn't live up to your expectations. We have made some recent changes to our overall flight process, where we now ask that all customers watch the pre-flight training video before coming in, so they have a chance to absorb it (and watch it again,...

Great experience!! It was fun, frustrating but overall a good learning & challenging one. I would def do this again & have it longer then 20mins. I would say at least 30-40mins, to really get a better experience & to have more time to really adapt to jet-boarding/jet pack. I will come back to catch more AIR!! 💨💨😎

I got my 20 minute flight as a gift so decided to use it with my nephews since no one else would come with me. First I was very scared of the "unknown" I have done skydiving, seadoos, scuba, etx but still nervous The staff was amazing from the time I booked until the time we left. My instructor was... More

This is your chance to defy gravity. Both the jet pack and the board were fun. Most agree though that the board is great fun, but definately more challenging. I would not recommend a flip on your first flight, it really hurts. You do not have to be a super athlete to do this but it is challenging. Overcoming the... More

I already reviewed this but it wasn't posted...not sure what happened. My husband and son did this. It is a lot harder than it looks. Neither my son, nor husband enjoyed this. And they like extreme activities. you cannot use your own camera....even if it is a goPro camera....no cell phone cameras either. You can purchase their goPro pictures though.

Drove five hours for our group of eight and got to facility over an hour early as recommended and the wait began. Turns out they had mechanical problems and after three hours gave us a refund. Extremely disappointed that they didn't have back up. It is unacceptable for a company who advertises a product where people travel from near and... More

Cindy, our sincere apologies about the disappointing experience you had at our Newport facility on Sunday. Believe it or not, we do have backups of all of our equipment, but we had compounded problems with our primary setup and our backups that day, which were completely unforeseen. Regardless, this clearly had a major ripple effect with your group and our... More
