The Extreme Thrill ride actually lived up to its name! Great fun, great thrills. Just as we started out, it began to rain. It made the trip even more thrilling. Flying across the tops of the waves, feeling and hearing the pounding of the boat when it connected with water, then feeling the wind and rain sting your cheeks. Makes me smile just to think about it. VERY EXCITING. The twists and turns made this feeling like a roller coaster on water. The first 360 left me gasping for air. HIGHLY recommend if you love speed, love getting wet and love the Chicago Sky Line.

Took family visiting from out of town ages 7-37. They all enjoyed it. The guide pointed out main buildings on north and south ends of downtown with a couple of stories. The rides between points of interest are straight, but fast. We were in the front and stayed dry.

Fun, fast, factual and fabulous! If you have a teenager, this is a great option for the architectural river tour. It covers a good part of the information about Chicago architecture and the speed out in the lake is sure to please the teens!
