  • The Beast was brilliant, the weather was miserable but we had a great time. Fabulous way of seeing Liberty up close. Crew were great and really looked after us. Really recommended!  more »
  • The beast ride was great. We saw the Statue of Liberty upclose. The staff took photos for us. We definitely bought tickets as something fun to do with our 8 year old but all enjoyed it.  more »
  • Couldn't do the Beast in 2016 due to the weather so could not wait to do it on my second visit to NYC. I was a bit disappointed and think it's a bit hyped up really...I didn't really want to get soaked but that's meant to be apart of the cheap thrill right so I was fully prepared with head scarf and all. The only people that got wet was the two young girls sitting right at the back (last seats) and were totally up for getting drenched. Apart from them you don't get wet at all...The two guys on the boat have a water gun and one of them was literally spraying it in my face and at others. A father and his young children had to ask for more water from the water gun as they were a little disappointed haha... I would recommend but not as great as I thought I would be, the views are amazing, take lovely pics and hold on tight .
  • DO NOT LEAVE NYC WITHOUT GOING TO THE BEAST! If I could I would rate this 20 out of 5 stars! Totally worth it the price, every single cent that is. Usually I don't go to the same place twice however, I am going to try this ride one more time before I go back home in Autumn! Guys you are awesome! I tried this ride yesterday and I can say I had the ride of my life. Not only is this boat fast, it also does some drifts near the statue of Liberty (After they take a picture of you and the Statue First). I would also advise you to bring some extra clothes with you for after the ride, your upper body will get all wet. Can't wait to try it again!
