FAaaaasaSssT!

This ride was super fun and incredibly fast. However, since it is on a wooden track it is pretty jerky. Go at night to see all of the Kemah lights!

Our grandson loved this. This was the last thing we did before leaving, you get soaking wet. This is a large speedboat that takes you out into the bay for a nice escape from this horrible Texas heat.

Oh yeah, how fun was this boat trip through the Kemah Boardwalk to Galveston Bay. Plenty of fun and exciting views with the "love boat" crew...

Hang on for a fun, wet ride in the bay. We picked a seat about 3/4 from the front of the boat not knowing what to expect. The crew were funny and entertaining and the boat ride was exhilarating but prepare to get wet! The captain turns the boat to arc the water over the boat and on to the... More

I rode this in 2011 and it was a bit more fun than this time. However the music was good and it went quite fast. I was disappointed not to get a bit splashed, i was sat at the front

The crew had plenty of energy, and were very entertaining. Just know that you will be very wet by the time the ride is over. Sit toward the front of the boat, it is more dry there.

The Beast is fun for the kids and young adults. Be aware that you will usually get wet, sometimes very wet! The driver knows how to make the boat spray large waves over almost the whole boat. Not recommended on cool days!

This was a trip that blew away the cobwebs so to speak. This was a truly fun half hour. Luckily we did not queue got straight on the boat after purchasing our tickets. Loud music, dancing crew, speed what's not to like. Yes you do get wet, that just adds to the experience. Great fun.
