Hold onto your hats! No, really: Hang on to them or they'll go flying out over the waves of Lake Michigan never to be seen again. Seadog promises a "wet and wild" 30-minute, breakneck speedboat adventure, where engines thrust the vessel up to 45mph on the open water. Breathtaking maneuvers include 180–360 degree spins, full-throttle slalom runs and sharp twists and turns. Some narration about Chicago is worked in among the rock & roll soundtrack and white-knuckle seat grabbing. Kids must be at least 48” tall to ride. See web site for additional tour times.
