Jetpack to be new attraction
MORE than 20 thrill seekers got the chance to try out a water propelled jetpack in Airlie Beach on the weekend.
Members of the public and members of the tourism and media industries tried out the technology that will soon be a regular tourism attraction in Airlie Beach.
Director of Jetpack Adventures Ritchie Gregg said everyone who had a go was up and flying around within five minutes and they all had an incredible time trying out the futuristic tourist attraction.
“We were invited by Whitsunday Marketing and Development and the Whitsunday Regional Council to demonstrate the exciting water powered jetpack to the region” he said.
“Training, demonstrations and media events will occur for the first few weeks and then Jetpack Adventures will be open to the public here at Airlie Beach in time for the summer season.”
Operators of the Jetpack can learn to take off, fly, turn, hover and land in a matter of minutes.
The crew will be back in three weeks for another round of demonstrations and will be taking bookings from the public
