Published by Thames Rockets 168 days ago

It's that time of year again! Last weekend our first Jingle Bell Blast took off from the London Eye pier amongst plenty of laughs, gifts and "ho ho ho's". Our guests arrived at Boarding Gate One with a little Christmas twinkle in their eye, ready to meet a very special guest! Every year, our friend St Nick himself greets all Thames Rockets Jingle Bell Blast passengers with goody bags for everyone. Christmas really does come early with plenty of gifts for Mum, Dad, Granny, Grandad and of course the kids! Laden with goods it was time to board for a

festively fun super speedboat adventure! Cranking up the Christmas songs and blasting off to Canary Wharf, our passengers squealed with delight as the sights of seasonal London turned into a blur! 30 knots, twists, turns and smiles form ear to ear. Nothing says Christmas like flying down the Thames at 30 knots! We're running our Jingle Bell Blast every Friday, Saturday and Sunday before Christmas. Give your loved ones a Christmas to remember with the Jingle Bell Blast. Looking for other fantastic festive adventures in London? EyeSkate (L
