Sunrise Jet is a great way to get a cheaper ride by booking the first ride of every day. This is available year round except at the New Year holidays. Be warned its cold so wrap up warmly and book at least 5 days in advance to avoid disappointment.
What to wear:
Even on the hottest days speed and water can be cool. Glasses, a hat and a warm layer are good ideas year round. In winter add gloves and lots of layers! The handrails are heated but the rest of you needs to cover up!
