I had an awesome time on Kjet last week. The team was great and the boat ride was thrilling whilst also scenic. I also really enjoyed the underwater observatory!

Even in wintertime it’s a great thing to do in Queenstown! I did it together with my 13-year old son and we enjoyed the ride very much! Loved the 360°- spins
