IT’S LIKE A ROLLERCOASTER ON THE WATER!

Operated by the world-renowned Circle Line, The Beast is New York’s only jet-powered thrill ride speedboat attraction! Don’t be fooled – The Beast isn’t just a monster on the surface.

The Beast has 1400 BHP-horsepower with two ZF 3000 marine gears powered by twin Hamilton Jets, rocketing you through the water at a heart-pounding 40 knots (about 45 mph)!

YOU’LL GET WET!

Not definitely, but it usually happens. So leave your laptop at home.

IT’S EXTREME!

We travel at high speeds and bounce around, so nobody who is pregnant, has heart conditions or back injuries should ride.

HOLD ON TO YOUR HAT!

Things like hats and sunglasses can fly away during the boat ride.

IT’S LOUD!

Twin jet engines, what do you expect?

40″ OR TALLER!

You have to be this tall to ride. That’s 102cm in the rest of the world.

NO LAPS!

Kids must be able to sit in their own seat without assistance.

SIT DOWN!

…and buckle up. Passengers must be seated at all times!

NO SMOKING!

There is no smoking allowed while riding The Beast.

NO RAIN, ONLY SHINE!

The Beast does not go out when it’s raining. Check beforehand by calling our box office to confirm.
