Q:

What dates will you be in Chicago? How heavy is the pack that rests on the shoulders?

Amy S.  asked on  Jun 25, 2013

A:

The pressure in the nozzles could reach 60 psi (only slightly higher than municipal pressures), but because of high flow rates, it may cause low-level pain and bruising in the arms, so one should not place hands or arms in the jets. Please contact Rocketman directly for specific scheduling requests.

Q:

Will be visiting Chicago from out of state and would like to see whether there's availability on 6th or 7th of July (afternoons)--prior to purchasing the Groupon: so... I clicked the link to your website; tried several times to check the availability/schedule of the Chicago location but ONLY the Ft Lauderdale booking/info opens under the "ride" and "contact" links (which has different minimum age requirement--18--and price/time offers). Help, please. :)

M. S.  asked on  Jun 15, 2013

A:

Groupon's advise is correct, pleae call the office. We have different rules depedning on what location we are operating. I believe we have open times on your requested dates. Please ask for KC when you call.

Q:

how good do your swimming skills have to be to do this?

qasim j.  asked on  Jun 15, 2013

A:

Being able to swin is not very important, not being afraid of the water IS very important. The jet pack floats so there is no worry of being pulled down.

Ben S.  from  Merchant  replied on  Jun 20, 2013

A:

According to their website, you should be a good swimmers, and be prepared to be in the water.
