I went on the Thames Rockets adventure on a Sunday afternoon. It was great fun and a brilliant way to see London! You get up to some pretty high speeds and the ride last about an hour. Definitely recommend as a present!

Hi there, Thames Rockets provide all guests with life jackets, water proof jackets and trousers (if it's raining). Guests might get a light splash or spray from the chop of the river but guests do not get soaked or drenched.
