Former Seadog Captain Eddie Brochin from "The Extreme" brings over 5000 hours of experience to the Louisville Waterfront aboard his own twin engine jet boat, The Scream Machine. Although this vessel is much smaller than the Extreme, it is also faster and more maneuverable than the 70-footer he used to operate out of Chicago's Navy Pier. On this thrill ride you can enjoy high-speed hairpin turns, fishtails, power slides, nose dives, and the legendary 360° spin at top speed.
The Thrill Ride is not for the faint of heart, and you must be at least 38" to ride. You might get wet, so either dress appropriately or inform the captain you'd like to stay dry. If you prefer a moderate performance ride, I recommend the Sunset Cruise. If you are looking for the ultimate date night, I recommend the evening Skyline Tour or Fireworks Tour.
Make a reservation, and I'll meet you at the docks!
She's a 30' - 800 hp thrill ride powered by a set of twin Turbo Yanmar 350 diesel engines.
