Jet Boat World celebrates the Making of a Kiwi Legend in displays of early jet boats, water jets and stories of the people who were part of jet boating's pioneering history.
Jet Boat World is a hands-on journey through jet boating history, told like nowhere else in New Zealand. Jet Boat World is part of Alpine Jet Thrills base located at Springfield Adventure Park in the very place where so much of the early development and experimental jet boating took place at Woodstock Beach on the Waimakariri River, here in Canterbury, New Zealand.
Jet Boat World has been established to protect and promote the cultural significance of New Zealand's role in introducing the jet boat to the world. See Bill Hamilton's last jet boat.
