I visited the Pride of the Susquehanna with two of the boys I babysit for the summer. I thought it would be a fun educational outing given that the website stated that audio of the history of Harrisburg plays during the ride. Unfortunately, we were not able to hear any of the audio. There were only two speakers working even... More

I booked the Murder Mystery Dinner / Theater as part of a weekend get-away with my wife and I'm glad I did. The boarding process was easy and the staff showed you to your seats. Dinner is catered by a local company and was very good. The riverboat staff are all very friendly and professional. The murder mystery show was... More

It's a 45 minute ride up the Susquehanna River. There's a narration relating the history of the area, the river, and Central Pennsylvania. There are buildings along the Harrisburg waterfront. These are very impressive and appear to be residences and ex-residences. Who lived there? When? Unfortunately the narrative totally ignores what's along the entire waterfront. But you can't fit much... More

We had reserved and paid for tickets online well ahead of time but on the day of our trip it was pouring rain. They were kind enough to allow us to come later in the day after the rain was supposed to let up. No charge or anything for the change. It was greatly appreciated. While still quite gloomy and...

We had some time to kill on a Saturday morning so we decided to take the paddle boat ride.We did find out that the Susquehanna paddle boat was one of the few still operating in the U.S.. The ride lasted about 45 minutes which included a narration regarding the history of the area and the boat. When you are done... More

We went for a Sunday outing with our family including grandkids. We took the 45 minute tour and thought it was really nice. The one thing that would have improved the trip is if they would have pointed out the points of interest or history facts, anything.

Took a mid-day scenic ride with our granddaughter through the week. The boat is well cared for and has a small snack bar. They offer dinner and other "special" cruises. It's one of only a few remaining authentic paddle wheels. There is a narrative while the boat is going, but it's hard to hear unless you are inside or by... More

Whether you are looking for a date night or something fun to do with the kids it's a great time. Dinner cruises, beer tasting and others give you a reason to go back again and again.
