Considered one of the premier boardwalks in the United States, Kemah Boardwalk features a variety of amusement park rides, restaurants, shops and a marina. If you're looking for thrills, try the Boardwalk Bullet Roller Coaster, the most popular ride at Kemah. With 42 total track crossovers (the most ever designed into a wooden coaster), the twists and turns of this ride promise to make you scream with delight. The boardwalk also offers other adrenaline-pumping options along with classics such as a carousel, a ferris wheel and a replica of the 1863 CP Huntington steam train.Want to take a speedy spin on Galveston Bay?

Be prepared to get wet as your boat reaches speeds of up to 40 miles per hour (65 kph). Tickets are required for all rides and can be purchased on-site at Kemah. When you get hungry, choose from a number of restaurants where you can purchase lunch or snacks. One of the boardwalk’s centerpiece restaurants is the Aquarium, where the dining room encircles a 50,000-gallon tank full of colorful fish, sharks and stingrays. After your fill of fun, meet your driver at the designated time for your return to downtown Houston, where your tour ends.
