“Inexpensive little adventure for kiddos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

The kids loved the boat ride and seeing the sights of the Woodlands. We have been out there many times and always talked about doing it and never had. The tickets are inexpensive and good for the entire day. My reservation with doing it was the heat, I did not realize they were enclosed and air conditioned...game changer! The ride is fairly short, but kids love it, fun way to spend a family afternoon.

“Nice boat ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

We went last year it was a nice ride. It moves slow so you can enjoy the scenery. The price was a little expensive for me for a short time. All in all it was good something different to do.

“Why bother?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

These boats are a ride to no where over an uninspiring landscape. This is not San Antonio and these boats are a novelty if you are really short of things to do. Go to the Children's Museum instead for children. It is a novelty perhaps for one time, but why bother to ever come back?

“Cruisin' on the "River"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

While I enjoyed encountering some of the local wildlife (turtles & herons), cruising past buildings on a narrow waterway (man made) was not my cuppa.

If you are using the water trolly to get from Point A to Point B (transportation) then I would recommend it. But as a tourist attraction, it is really lacking.
