Ride in a jet boat

Searing up the green highway at 90 kilometres per hour, punters on the New Zealand River Jet get a whistle-stop tour of the upper Waikato.

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

Invented in New Zealand, the jetboat is as successful as a driver of thrill-seeking tourism as it is a product in its own right.
