Acquisition adds to City Experiences’ growing portfolio of experience-based offerings in top tourism destinations worldwide
City Experiences announced Thursday it has closed on the acquisition of Youngstown whitewater jet boat tour experiences provider Niagara Jet Adventures.
A press release stated, “Niagara Jet Adventures joins City Experiences’ growing portfolio of water-based experience companies and supports the company’s overall business strategy toward growing its product offerings for guests.”
Beginning Friday, May 28, Niagara Jet Adventures, located a few minutes away from Niagara Falls, will resume its operations. Tickets and reservations are now available at niagarajet.com.
With almost a decade of whitewater touring experience in some of the most intense rapids in the U.S., City Experiences said, “Niagara Jet Adventures provides an epic and safe whitewater jet boat adventure in the Niagara Gorge. Rated by USA Today as one of America’s Top Boat Tours, Niagara Jet Adventures offers various tour experiences that highlight both the Canadian and U.S. sides of the Niagara River. NJA takes guests through the thrilling Class-5, whirlpool rapids and includes narrated, guided tours of historic and geological landmarks.”
City Experiences has acquired five new companies and nine in total over the past few years. It has also integrated a proprietary ticketing system to enhance the customer journey and expanded to more than 110 countries, six continents and over 125 U.S. cities, including NYC, San Francisco, Paris, Rome and London.
“As our portfolio of global experiences continues to expand, we are thrilled to include Niagara Jets’ whitewater adventures, providing our guests with the best and most unique products possible,” says Mory DiMaurizio, chief operating officer of City Cruises, Canada. “This one-of-a-kind offering fits uniquely within our portfolio of offerings and solidifies our continued goal to become the world’s leader in experiences and transportation.”
