It was an absolutely amazing experience

It was an absolutely amazing experience. The helicopter views were breathtaking and WOW the Jetboat Ride was not for the faint-hearted. We thoroughly enjoyed our first experience and look forward to all the others we have booked during our stay in Oz. Thank you.

I bought the experience for my husbands birthday

I bought the experience for my husbands birthday. He loved the jetboating and enjoyed the helicopter flight however we paid for a 10 minute flight and he only got a 5 minute flight so that was disappointing. We also had to wait an hour before they got on the flight, then when he did get on he was put in the front with the pilot which was great as it was his birthday. Then he got taken out and put in the back because another passenger who was travelling alone got put in the front. Not really sure why that was done. Overall a little disappointed with the helicopter section.
