Hold onto your hats because for 30 fun-filled minutes, you'll be soaring past New York's towering skyscrapers at a heart-pounding 45 miles per hour!

The last Attraction Ticket we bought was for ‘The Beast’ New York Speedboat Cruise. This was one of the real highlights of the holiday but only after more New York trauma! The Attraction Ticket stated that there was no need to book and to turn up 20 minutes before the intended trip. This we did arriving just before 1000. When I presented the tickets I was told that the next available trip was at 1400 which would incur a four hour wait. Not being prepared to accept this I was eventually taken past security to the operating offices. Here I was told that there was no availability as a school had booked the two trips before 1400. I pointed out the wording on the voucher to which they replied that Attraction Tickets were at fault and should not have printed that information. It was only after I stated that the ticket constituted a written contract that they changed their approach PULLED SOME STRINGS and got us onto the 1100 trip. Once on we were surprised to note that the boat was practically empty! However the trip itself was fantastic with a great crew who made it even more enjoyable and in the end worth the hassle. The morel is ‘ to go on the trip is a must but do not trust the information you have been given. Book in advance!’ Regards Chris kent UK
