So you're telling me that running with a jet boat up and down, day in day out doesn't cause a disturbance to the river's ecosystem?

Exactly what that corner of Heaven needed, some brain dead shitheads trashing the place like it's going out of style.. i suggest a couple of pubs and whore house along the banks for good measure..
The morons who though of this shit need to be castrated asap, along with those who allowed it.. this people simply need to stop reproducing (i)

:D The real me say: "F'in awesome! I wish I'll try it. I wish i had that guys job."

::(|) The old-aunt-scared-of-being-scared-of-everything-outside-her-room side of me say: "They should wear many helmets! This sad for the ecosystem! Imagine the risks if a plane fall on the boat! Why I cannot get a life like people allowing this??"

It would be quite a blast to make a run through that canyon if everything went good, but the safety record of these jet boat rides is not very good. Many of these boats have crashed causing deaths and injuries to passengers.

#21,
It really doesn't surprise me. Already wondered how good its safety record was. I guess it's a part of the thrill, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if passengers have to sign a safety provision.
Still, some people are thrill seekers and thrill seekers tend to get themselves killed for taking risks normal people wouldn't take.

I'd love to see the driving test they had to take to do that job. I wonder how many spare boats they have. 8-)
