A great experience from start to finish. We boarded at Bankside Pier (ignore the Uber people who tell you that the Rockets don't run from that pier). We were given lifejackets (which a member of staff checked we had fitted properly), boarded the boat and after a short safety notice we were off. The boats cannot go fast until they pass Tower Bridge so you have a couple of minutes of peace and quiet before the mayhem begins. We raced up to the barrier and back with music blasting and the wind in our hair and it was brilliant. The ride's pretty smooth but you do get the odd bumpy bit when you cross wake from other craft and you might get a bit wet - but you're on a river for goodness sake. I took my 9 year old daughter who loved it. Team Joey and Mark were first rate. I twice needed to contact Customer Support before our trip and on both occasions they answered the phone promptly and were very helpful.

We took a ride with Thames Rockets for my Birthday with Bill and Charlene. The experience was great, I haven’t had so much fun in ages. Both myself and my Husband had a really good time. I personally just felt alive at the high speeds and would go again without hesitation. What made it even better was with Tesco Clubcard vouchers, we just had the booking fee to pay. The staff were really friendly and I had happy birthday sung to me! I also had a good experience with the team on the phone, as I had issues with rebooking trains and changing the time of the trip. Would highly recommend to anyone. You don’t get wet and neither of us felt we were flung around. Go and enjoy!
