Scream Machine Thrill Ride at Panama City Beach

star-4.5
77
Zip across the water, let loose, and even let out a shriek or two when you ride the Scream Machine: a twin-engine jet boat whose speed, 360-degree turns, and nose dives make it feel more like a rollercoaster on water. Pick from multiple departure times, head to the dock, and strap in: you can soak up the sun (and get splashed by the surf) as you speed past Panama City Beach.
