Noosa Thriller Review

I was slightly disappointed in the Thriller ride because I was expecting the driver to go faster and jump more waves along with doing more sharp, short turns in the water. It's not called the Thriller ride for nothing. My suggestion to improve it would be the following: you have 4 separate times throughout the day for when you take the boat out. How about advertising and making 2 of these rides a much more thrilling ride for those people that are wanting quite a thrill e.g. jump more waves for much longer, do more sharper and shorter turns, and go much faster in a longer line stretch across the ocean. Then the other 2 rides do them as the current existing boat ride where the boat doesn't go as fast, doesn't jump many waves and doesn't do many sharp, short turns. You would then cater for both groups of people who want an absolute thrill that it's just about scary but still quite on the safe side and then a more comfortable easier ride with minor thrills.

Hi Suzanne, thank you for your comments and recommenations. our 4 times per day depends on tides and sea conditions. each trip is different depending on sea conditions. this boat capable of 45 knots plus , to spend the whole time flat out in all sea conditions would not suit most people { not every one is a commando}. it would also be dangerous. in all conditions we have a duty of care for all on this ride, young or old . this is required by our licence to operate. Regards Bill and the noosa thriller team

Very disappointing!!! After I have read the summary of the activity i was like " Wooowww its gonna be awesome" . Of course "High-performance ride which includes wave-jumping, ocean swell surfing, 360-degree turns, figure-eights and teardrops." Sounds really good to me. We deffo didnt do all those tricks... and only few times anyway!! The driver didnt go really fast and was "on the brakes" very often. He stopped all the way near beaches to tell us the story of them, of the caves, and coastal walks too etc... But to be honest we didn't care as we book for adrenaline staffs : not visiting / enjoying the view etc... otherwise we would have rent a kayak and go to explore by ourselves...... And even after I mentioned that I wanted some adrenaline ( which is the purpose of the activity ) and to give me good reasons to hold myself to the handling thing as reques t ... he apparently didnt really care... Not recommanded.. doesnt worth the money at all t summary like that saying "adrenaline

The Noosa Thriller ride is different every trip depending on sea conditions. On your trip there wasn't much surf or swell so more donuts etc were preformed. Because this vessel was specially designed and built for this work you don't realise the speed in which you are travelling. So 40/50 knots is very fast on water. As part of our ride we do like to showcase out beautiful national park. Its disappointing that two french backpackers didn't appreciate the beauty and wildlife of our park. These areas you would not kayak to. The other customers on that ride sent through request for their photos and said they had lots of fun. Hope you both enjoy the rest of your travels here in Australia. Team Noosa Thriller
