Thames Thriller (50mins) Halloween Special!

 10,343 reviews

As the nights begin to draw in, a sense of a chill sits in the air and the moon is at its fullest (and reddest!) it’s time to wrap up warm and welcome the new season in the spookiest and silliest way possible!

Let’s be honest - 2020 has been scary enough for us all, so this year Thames Rockets is making Halloween a real family affair. Slap on the face paint, grab your nearest witches hat, dress the kids up and come on down for a super spooky speedy speedboat adventure that we guarantee will blow the cobwebs away.

Our ‘gruesome guides’ will be ready for your arrival with Halloween treats and to get you ready for your thrilling Thames experience. Creep on board with your fellow ghosts and ghouls and get involved in some seasonal silliness whilst your guide tells some of London’s creepiest and spookiest stories (all family friendly of course!).

We’ll be getting the kids involved all along the way from Parliament to Tower Bridge, we want to hear the best witches cackles and the scariest screams! This is quality family time - guaranteed!

Once past Tower Bridge it’s time for the real ‘fright’. Hold on tight as your ‘spooky skipper’ revs up your Rocket to a hair raising 35mph! Be whooshed away on your very own ‘fright flight’ with a monster mash up of Halloween themed hits to sing along to. Twist and turn as the sun sets and the moon rises high in the darkening sky…

Once back to Tower Bridge the whole family can settle their nerves and enjoy the lights of London lighting up just for you.

At Thames Rockets we believe it is time for quality family time, which is why this Halloween we are offering this one-off family friendly adventure at the spook-tacular family price of just £129 (two adults two children).

What are you waiting for? Dust off that witches hat and bring your little monsters down for a frighteningly good time this Halloween.

Two scheduled sailings:

15:00 suitable for littler monsters who prefer the daytime

16:15 for bigger monsters who like things a little bit darker with sunset @ 16:34


From start to finish amazing fun. The Halloween trip was my fourth time on the Thames rocket. Telling all my friends and family how great all the staff were and how exhilarating the whole experience was.


"Great Halloween!"

We booked the Thames Thriller as part of a work do - what fun! We had such a great time together speeding down the Thames. The ghost stories from the guides were brill and the hot toddy was delicious - especially as the sun sets over London.



I have seen some of the reviews on here and I have to say that the team on the Halloween night one was fantastic. The ride was great and the team on the night were FIRST CLASS.
