Lyme RIB Rides Questions & Answers

Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

Hi, I'm thinking of taking my 6 and 9 year old boys on the 30 minute rib ride next week. I know they'll love it but I'm such an anxious mum. Is it safe for them, no chance of them falling/bouncing out when the rib does tight, fast turns? I'm one of those parents who cling onto my kids hands on rollercoasters (not that it would do a jot of good if something went wrong!)

Mine are now grown but I'd have taken my young lad on this boat. The crew were very friendly, professional and safety conscious. We did the longer sight seeing ride. Maybe consider that if you're not sure - it's still a thrill. Your boys will love the boat and its 500bhp engines! I doubt they'd do the job if there was any risk. If you go on a rollercoaster it's not 100% safe. Neither is being driven in a car.....

Hi, we did the longer ride but I think the speed may be the same as the 30minute ride. We felt safe the whole time and the skipper said that no one had ever fallen out! My 8 year old couldn’t reach the bar to hold on but I held her hand for the entire ride and didn’t feel unsafe with only one hand on the rail myself. Everyone has to wear a safety vest and listen to a safety briefing beforehand so we all felt health and safety was paramount. Hope you enjoy! X

It is fast but staff are very experienced and brief you beforehand extremely well. I wouldn’t say there is a risk
