It's fast, furious and a world first! Thames Rockets is a new and thrilling high speed boat ride within the Thames High Speed Zone.
Your ride takes place in a 12 metre long aero-dynamically designed fiberglass ‘Thames Rockets’ with a powerful 630hp of engine power. The racy red speedboat will zoom you up the Thames at a thrilling speed of 35mph exclusively in the new high speed zone! With a rousing ‘best of British’ soundtrack, including the sounds of Winston Churchill, Peggy Mitchell, Del Boy and Boris Johnson, this is sure to be a rocket ride to remember. A comic host will keep the British entertainment flowing and there are plenty more thrills and surprises along the way. You will flash past the Cutty Sark, The O2 and Greenwich on your way to the Thames Barrier before heading back to the launch pad, covering 20 miles in total, all in the new Thames high speed zone.
Once you arrive at St Katharine's Pier you will be kitted out with waterproofs and a life jacket. You will then board the speedboat and receive a safety briefing from your expert skipper. The rocket will 'launch' and you will take off on your high speed ride. As part of this package you will also receive a London Rib Voyages T-shirt as a memento of your day.
