Welcome to Break the Barrier, Rockets Speed Boat Ride on the Thames. Exclusively within the 'Thames High Speed Zone', you and a guest will race down the river with an expert skipper firing up the Rocket's engine with the winner of Visit England's 'Family Friendly Attraction of the Year' for 2017/18. Your Thames Rocket is a 12 metre long, fibreglass boat with two 315hp engine. You will blast through the water on the 40 minute ride that allows you to see the O2, the Cutty Sark and Greenwich. If the speed, splashes and sharp turns weren't enough, the soundtrack will ensure a lively ride, travelling through time with tunes taking you from the modern day back to the 1960's. With life jackets and waterproofs provided, you don't have to worry about getting wet with this super-fast jaunt down the Thames that will blow the other boat rides out of the water.
Need to Know
When you arrive at St Katherine Pier you will be greeted by a friendly member of staff who will provide you with waterproofs and a life jacket. After a quick safety briefing you will be off, powering down the Thames at incredible speeds. Your skipper will be in control of the boat whilst your guide provides an entertaining commentary along the way. This ride is not about seeing the sights - although you will stop at one or two landmarks, including the Thames Barrier ' the sheer thrill and liberating feel of speeding through London with nothing in your way is the main attraction.
