How to Prepare for your WildThing Jet Boat Tour

You’ve already booked your tickets for an exciting day on a WildThing Jet Boat. How do you prepare for your tour to ensure that you have the best time imaginable? We’ve compiled a list of a few recommendations to make sure you have a splashing good time:

-Arrive about 25 minutes before your tour, so enough time is allowed for check-in and orientation of the facility.

-We wouldn’t suggest bringing your phone or valuables, unless they are in a secure waterproof bag that fits in your pocket.

-Keep in mind that there is no bathroom on board, but facilities are available at the point of embarkation.

-In cases of inclement weather or if someone isn’t feeling well in your group, your tickets are valid until used, so you may reschedule to another time, or gift them to family or friends that are coming to the Dells!

Last but not least, prepare yourself for a wild ride! For more information, visit our frequently asked questions at:

360 degrees of Spin on a WildThing Jet Boat Tour!

Wisconsin Dells’ most popular Jet Boat Tour is all about fun! Gather your friends and hang on as you experience a WildThing Jet Boat Ride! Be prepared to get soaked and cool off in the hot summer sun. This 1,200 horsepower jet boat will take you beneath the towering cliffs of the Upper Wisconsin River, passing the famous Sunset Cliff & Witches Gulch. My favorite part of the tour is when the boat suddenly comes to an abrupt stop, causing it to spin 360 degrees and a big wave to come overboard, cooling off everyone!

Besides getting splashed, you’ll learn about the past history on the Dells and the rock formations along the Wisconsin River. With all of the excitement and fun to be had on a WildThing Jet Boat ride, be sure to give it a spin this summer on your next visit to Wisconsin Dells.
