Get ready for a thrilling adventure in the shark machine! Launching from our central Queenstown location, we'll embark on an adrenaline-fueled journey across the beautiful Lake Whakatipu. Imagine a stunt plane on water - sit comfortably in the cockpit and brace yourself for the g-forces as one of our skilled pilots delivers an unforgettable experience. Gaze through the F-16 fighter-grade glass of the semi-submersible shark, and watch the sky vanish as your pilot dives deep beneath the water, only to breach the surface and propel the entire 6-meter-long shark into the air. Capable of rolling at a 90-degree angle, performing tight doughnut turns, and reaching top speeds of 80 kph on water and 40 kph underwater, this exhilarating experience is one you won't soon forget.

Option to add video of your ride
Please check in ten minutes before your ride departure time at our kiosk on the Lapsley Butson Wharf on the Queenstown lakefront by Earnslaw Park. (Next to Perkys Floating Bar and Pedro's By the Lake Restaurant.)
Accomodation pickups aren't available.
The minimum ride to ride is six years old. Hydro Attack isn't recommended for pregnant people or anyone with serious neck, back, hip or knee issues. Due to the cosy confines of the cockpit, we need to make sure that all our passengers can get in and out of the cockpit quickly and safely in the unlikely event of an emergency. Due to this, there is a recommended maximum height restriction of 195cm (6ft 4’) and a maximum recommended weight restriction of 105kg (232lbs or 16.5 stone) in place. If you’re over the height or weight restriction we would need you to come down to our operating berth prior to booking so one of our team can assess whether you will be comfortable in the craft. Please contact the Hydro Attack team if you are unsure whether to book or not.
Full refund if cancelled up to 24 hours before activity starts.
Good weather is required for this experience. If we need to cancel due to poor weather, you'll be offered a different date or a full refund.
