Shotover Jet has become Trip Advisor's most reviewed single activity in Queenstown.

Known as the world's leading travel review and planning website, Trip Advisor enables guests to review activities, accommodation, restaurants and bars and give honest personal opinion and feedback.

Shotover Jet has notched up 1000 reviews to take the No 1 spot.

"The fact that 1000 people have taken the time to put 'pen to paper' ‐ so to speak ‐ is great," Shotover Jet general manager Clark Scott said.

"It means a lot to us and the fact this makes us the number one reviewed single activity on Trip Advisor ‐ with almost twice as many reviews as similar activities ‐ is huge."

Byron from Australia said in his Trip Advisor review that Shotover Jet was the "scariest most exhilarating boat ride in my life".

He added: "I had no control, I was apprehensive initially, sitting on the port side of the jet boat near the engines at the rear. Getting wet in near freezing conditions heightened my senses and eventual trust in the pilot made for some of the best adrenalin pumping excitement of my 65 years ‐ 44 years as a game boat captain/fisherman. I highly recommend the experience to anyone and everyone. What a blast."

Maria from New Zealand said "if it's good enough for The Cambridges ‐ it's good enough for the NZ taxpayers. Quite a scintillating experience," she said.
