The BEAST Speedboat Ride
ROAR DOWN THE HUDSON RIVER FROM PIER 83 TO THE STATUE OF LIBERTY WITH LOTS OF TWISTS, TURNS AND SPLASHY ACTION. - The BEAST
Take a ride on New York's only jet-powered thrill ride attraction, the massively exciting BEAST Speedboat.
This 70-foot powerboat is 'like a rollercoaster on the water', traveling at speeds of up to 40 knots (45 mph). The 1400 BHP horsepower combines with the 2 ZF 3000 marine gears powered by twin Hamilton Jets to give you the fastest, most fun sightseeing experience in New York City!
During this 30 minute cruise, you will get wet, it will be loud, and you must be buckled in. We suggest leaving the hats and sunglasses off, as they may fly off during the ride to the Statue of Liberty. The cruise leaves every hour on the hour from 10 am to 6 pm during its operating season of May-September, but does not operate during rain.
This is the perfect summer group activity, with options for private group charters seating up to 138 people. Trust us, a ride on The Beast is a unique NYC experience that your group will never forget!
