This ride is for you if you are not looking for history lesson.

Took a bunch of teenagers on this ride as part of my daughter's 16th b-day NYC trip. With zero tolerance to history lessons during summer break, this tour was exactly what doctor ordered. Just enough time was spent to take pictures by the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Entire trip was filled with thrill and excitement. Spraying people with water-guns is was really unnecessary. There is enough mist and natural splashing from the boat. If you state clearly in the beginning of the ride that you don't want to be sprayed, then they will probably won't do it.

The Beast via Viator, awesome!

Not only have I lived in NYC for over 10 years and have guests in often for which I always plan a lot of activities, but I had never done the Beast until now when some friends were visiting. It was so fun- wind in our hair, the crew, the vibe, the music- so fun loving and awesome. A great way to pick up the pace, literally, and see the city. Did not bother a friend who has sea sick/ motion sick tendencies. It's big enough and fast enough. You may bet a little wet, but it sure feels good on a hot day. The crew was so friendly and fun too!

This was the second time we took the BEAST and it lived up to its expectations again. Capt Showtime and Kraken showed us a good time. Our newbie guest and kids had a great time and it was exhilarating and wet to cool us off on a hot day.

Took four grandkids on The Beast last weekend. We all loved the experience. Went from West 42nd Street to tip of Manhattan and then to Statue of Liberty in a matter of minutes, virtually flying through the water. A couple of spins then got everyone wet. Finally, we raced back to where we started. Awesome ride!
