WHAT TO EXPECT
Get ready for Queenstown's ultimate adrenaline experience... the Hydro Attack! It's a high-speed thrill ride in a semi-submersible shark and it's tons of fun! Sit back in the state-of-the-art cockpit and prepare to get your heart racing!
To start your adventure, head out in the Hydro Attack passenger boat to the operating area on the main part of the lake. Once in position, it’s time to up the adrenaline. Board the shark from the boat and get ready for some serious fun! It's time to scream in the shark machine!
You'll feel like you're in a stunt plane on the water as you zoom and fly around. Sit back in the cockpit and get ready to feel the g-force as you experience a 12-minute ride.
Looking through the F-16 fighter grade glass of the shark, you'll see the sky disappear as your pilot descends into a long dive under the water! Then, get the adrenaline pumping as you break the surface and launch the entire 6 metres of the shark in the air. You'll fly 5 metres into the air - awesome!
You'll also love the 90-degree rolls and tight doughnut turns! Reaching top speeds of 80 kph on water and 40 kph underwater, this is a fast-paced adventure you'll never forget.
After your ride, settle back on the boat to watch your friends, family and other passengers have a turn.
