The Main Event

Experience a high-speed thrill seeking Ultimate London Adventure on a renowned Thames Rockets speed boat. The most popular of the speedboat experiences on the Rockets, you will see the Capital like never before as you whizz your way down the river Thames.

This is no ordinary experience as you will blast your way from the London Eye Pier for 50 minutes of thrill seeking, high adrenaline adventure, taking in the iconic landmarks of the city all whilst strapped into a powerful speedboat in supplied life jackets and waterproofs. Sights such as the Houses of Parliament, Shakespeare's Globe, The Shard and St Pauls Cathedral are just some of the incredible buildings you see from a vantage point like no other sat with your loved ones on the ride of a lifetime!

880 horsepower engines will make you twist and turn down the Thames up to speeds of 35 miles per hour all whilst listening to a medley of classic anthems and songs that will get you really fired up for the buzz and excitement of the experience!

And don't worry if your historical knowledge isn't up to scratch as there is a guide on each boat to regale you with tales of a comedic nature about London and its famous surroundings. This is, of course, as well as a highly trained skipper that will guide you every step of the way.

  • Highly recommend

    A little hard to find where you were supposed to go, but that might have just been me. Everything about this was professionally done, from the moment you get into the boat to when you're back on land. Highly recommend.

  • Thrilling Experience

    Wow that was a thrilling experience. All my family members enjoyed lots including my little one and parents. I didn’t expect my son would enjoy so much. Definitely, this experience is beyond any age limits, where all age groups will enjoy for sure. A piece of cherry on the cake, the representative on the boat. He stole the show and grabbed everyone’s attention.
