What’s new for teens in Boston?

You can knock the B word (for boring!) right out of their vocabulary with a high-speed ride on Codzilla (617-227-4321, www.bostonharborcruises.com/codzilla, adults $27, children ages 3-11 $23) departing from Boston Harbor. The wet and wild ride on a state-of-the-art jet boat takes you up to speeds of 40 miles per hour as it turns and spins over ocean waves.

Equally thrilling, in a different way, is the Ghosts & Gravestones of Boston tour (617-269-3626, www.ghostsandgravestones.com, adults $39.90, ages 6-12 $25.20, seven nights a week, June-Oct.). Hop aboard a black trolley for a 1½-hour twisted tour to graveyards, unmarked burying grounds, haunted hotels, and chilling murder sites. The funny and spooky guides are really entertaining, and the tour is actually informative — a great way to learn of some of the city’s spine-tingling past. It’s not recommended for kids under 13.
