The guide was a high school or college student and didn't know much about anything. The tour is very short, uninformative, and pretty boring. Even my six-year-old niece was not amused.

With exhilarating high speeds and full 180-360° spins, this jet-propelled ride blasts off to start and splashes down to stop!

Also enjoy rock-n-roll music and a fun narration about Chicago.
