Bought a 50 min trip for a 10 year old's birthday present and we both thoroughly loved it. The sightseeing bit was interesting/informative, but the best bit is when they open up the the throttle on the boat and let it rip! Stupidly fun.

Hi there, Thames Rockets provide all guests with life jackets, water proof jackets and trousers (if it's raining). Guests might get a light splash or spray from the chop of the river but guests do not get soaked or drenched.
