Zip across the water, let loose, and even let out a shriek or two when you ride the Scream Machine: a twin-engine jet boat whose speed, 360-degree turns, and nose dives make it feel more like a rollercoaster on water. Pick from multiple departure times, head to the dock, and strap in: you can soak up the sun (and get splashed by the surf) as you speed past Panama City Beach.
  • This one-of-a-kind thrill ride is perfect for adventurous travelers
  • Multiple departure times are available to fit around your sightseeing
  • Get ready to let loose (and get soaked) on this adrenaline-pumping ride
  • This experience is best suited to older children and adults

I’m sorry you felt you had a bad experience safety is our top priority I’ve been driving jet boats for 25 years and I have had zero incidence of any kind I have a perfect clean driving record if you felt the ride was unsafe you should’ve brought it to my attention then so we could have slowed it down for you or taking you back to the dock
