What you can expect
Channel your inner James Bond on a state-of-the-art Jetpack, using the power of water to propel yourself high above the lake. Spin, dive, and soar as you learn to use the equipment and experience the adrenaline-pumping thrill of flying.
Head to the beach and meet your instructor, who straps you into your 5-point safety harness and introduces you to your equipment. Start with an orientation on land and then in the water. The Jetpack attaches to a jet ski via a long hose, and the instructor controls the throttle that pumps water towards your backpack. The rest of the controls are up to you—handles let you steer from side to side and change the flow of water to propel yourself up and down.
A Headzone communication helmet lets you hear and talk to your instructor while you're in flight. After you're comfortable with the gear, try out some more skilled moves and manoeuvres. Test your stability as you wave at the camera, run across the surface of the water, and blast yourself upward towards the sky—Jetpacks can send you flying as high as 50 feet (15 m) above the water!
