Williams Lake, British Columbia
October 14, 2002
The well-trained drivers do several 360 spins in the boats, which among other things, tends to get you a little wet, so don't refuse to take the rain gear offered at the start of the ride. During one of these 360 degree spins taking place right by the docks, the company has a camera set up to take a picture which you can buy at the end of your ride.
The drivers also provide a thrill by turning the boat into trees and bushes in the water. The boat is going so fast it slides by these objects before actually turning, but it is hard to convince first time passengers they are not going to slam into a tree trunk or some shrubs.
We spent three or four minutes at the base of the falls which allowed ample time for picture taking. Our driver was happy to help out.
The boats are powered by 496 Cu. in. 8.1 litre Chevrolet V8 engines and have tremendous speed and acceleration.
It is a great ride and well worth the price.
