If the relaxing nature of a traditional scenic cruise isn't for you, try a jet boat ride down the Gold Coast. You'll still get views of the same landmarks—Sea World, the Versace Hotel, Surfers Paradise, and the Southport Yacht Club—with high speeds and daredevil tricks thrown in between. Book this popular excursion ahead of time to avoid disappointment in sold-out tours.
What to Expect
Make your way to the departure location in Surfers Paradise for a safety briefing and life jacket fitting. Then climb aboard the state-of-the-art jet boat and take off for a sightseeing tour punctuated by thrilling moves. 

Zoom around the waterways of the Gold Coast, past mansions, beaches, and sandbanks. Hold on to your seat through a series of daredevil maneuvers and get views of landmarks, such as Wave Break Island and South Stradbroke Island. Tricks include high-speed drifting, beach buzzing, 360-degree spins, and power slides. Come dressed for splashes; getting wet is part of the deal.

No I dont think there are any restrictions, everyone has a seatbelt, they tell you to hang on if they do a 360 degree spin.
