If you feel the need for speed – don't miss THE BEAST, New York City’s very own water thrill ride. Strap yourself in and allow the captain and crew to take you for a super-charged, wet n' wild ride through New York Harbor. THE BEAST pushes you across the water at high-speed for a wild ride. With its big sharp teeth carving the waters, The Beast zooms past skyscrapers at about 45mph! If you want to shake up your visit to New York City then a ride on THE BEAST is a must!

Slow things down for a moment for a close-up of the Statue of Liberty where you'll have a quick photo-op. You’ll come within 100 feet of the Lady Liberty! It is a neat opportunity at the end of the tour to snap some great photos of the famous statue. Loaded with almost 100 speakers, the boat crew blasts popular music and engages in funny banter throughout the tour. But be careful, the crazy captains might also be carrying water balloons and water guns to make sure you get nice and soaked!

A thrill ride that’s great for the whole family, THE BEAST holds 145 passengers at a time; the custom-built, 70-foot long boat is New York's largest and fastest speedboat. Experience New York City from a new perspective:  cruising across the harbor, viewing the city skyline on a mega speedboat. Sure, you leave the port slowly and calmly but then in a flash the mega engines kick into high gear and you are immediately flying across New York Harbor.
