Elysha 1 year ago The Huka Falls Jet was great fun! Loved the 360 spins and getting up close to the Huka Falls! The staff were friendly and the boat driver gave us some great information about the local attractions during our ride. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would recommend it to other people.

This was a really fast and exciting way to view the falls
Laura Burns 2 years ago

This was a really fast and exciting way to view the falls. The first part of the ride is down river to get yourself ready for the experience and entails a bit of history and information on the area. You then zip up the the falls, doing 360° turns while you go. Super fun jet ride - I've done these rides before and this location is perfect for it! $100 each (approx) was a great deal we thought ! Would recommend :)

The falls where the jet boat goes up to is out of this world
Michelle 3 years ago

The falls where the jet boat goes up to is out of this world!!! The falls are massive with raging water and the jetboat gets really close to the falls. The scenery of the trip is amazing as is the trip itself. Really really fun!

Not to be missed when visiting Taupo!
