End of Season Party

Published by Thames Rockets 2443 days ago

Thames Rockets have brought the curtain down on another wonderful summer season this week with our annual staff party. We've had a blast this season whizzing thousands of you around the Thames on our No.1 guided speedboat experiences. This year we have had plenty to celebrate in our 11th year of business - our 7th consecutive TripAdvisor 'Certificate of Excellence', passing a milestone 7,000 5/5 reviews, our first Viator Award for 'top customer service' and a huge highlight was scooping our first ever VisitEngland Award being named 'Family Friendly Attraction 2017'. So, as ever, to say a huge thank you to our fantastic, dedicated and hard working team of booking administrators, boarding managers, guides, and skippers we all went off for a jolly good night out. First stop, after herding the cats together at Vauxhall station, was with Whistle Punks for their 'Axe Throwing'. There were a few nervous faces amongst the team to begin with - we now know how some of you must feel the first time you climb onboard a Thames Rocket! However the team at Whistle Punks were amazing, putting all the team through their paces. Then it was competition time! After a furious hour or so of axes whistling through the air we had a winner... superstar guide David. Congratulations to guide James for getting onto Whistle Punks 'Wall of Fame' for scoring 50+ points overall and to guide Bill for nailing his double axe trick shot (see photos below!). After all that furious adrenaline fuelled axe throwing it was time for a nice sit down and a drink, we headed over to the Tamesis DockTamesis Dock is a converted 1930s dutch barge, (of course we had to end up on a boat!) moored up permanently between Lambeth Bridge and Vauxhall Bridge and serves as a floating pub, live music and event space.  If you haven't had a chance to come onboard for a speedy adventure with Thames Rockets this year don't worry, trips are operated all year round and we've still plenty of special trips coming up as well including; Halloween, Christmas specials and our NYE experience as well. The biggest thank you goes to you - our valued passengers - without whom we would just be a bunch of people floating around on a boat. Here's to many more seasons of super speedy blasts. We're ready. Are you?
