Earlybird Shark Ride Experience in Queenstown

Hydro Attack Limited

Select Option


The Earlybird Special is a discounted price only available for the first two time-slots of the day (2 spaces per time-slot).

It’s time to scream in the shark machine.
You’re inside what feels like a cross between a fighter jet and a torpedo.
It’s skimming across the top of the lake at 80kph then it dives under the water, surrounding you in serene liquid blue.
Next your pilot points the shark at the sky and it blasts back out again, straight up into the air before shattering the lake into a million crystal shards on a screaming re-entry.
Whatever else you’ve done in the name of extreme excitement, nothing has prepared you for a ride in one of Hydro Attack’s sharks.
Hydro Attack is the world’s first commercial operator of these unique semi-submersible machines so while you’re in Queenstown don’t miss your chance to have a go.

What You'll Get


Start the day with an adrenaline blast on the Earlybird special! Experience a high-speed thrill ride in one of our semi-submersible sharks as one of our experienced pilots takes you on the ride of your life. Dive under the crystal clear waters and then blast up into the air then watch the aqua blue water surround the fighter-jet glass canopy as you do side rolls and tight turns like an aquatic rollercoaster. Your shark experience is one-on-one with your pilot so you decide if you want to go mild or wild. Are you ready for the ultimate blend of shark and machine?
Trips are 15 minutes out on the water. Please allow 25 minutes total for the whole experience including safety briefing and loading and unloading.
