We had a BOGO ticket through the Super Splash Pass card. When purchasing our ticket, the person helping us was technology challenged and was having issues, but finally got us our tickets. Check in at the boat was fast and easy. Unfortunately, we discovered that when we got our tickets, the customer service person gave us two for the right date and two for the wrong date. That explains why she was having issues. The person checkin us in still let us all go on...thankfully! The boat ride was beautiful because it was really dark out. The characters did a great job of staying in characters. Unfortunately, we had some VERY obnoxious people on the walking part of the tour that kind of put a damper on the experience. Overall a decent time, especially for BOGO.

My 11 year old absolutely loved the experience, but as an adult I was disappointed. It was a ghost boat tour; but majority of the time we walked to a point, turned around and went back. Scare factor wasn't there...which is fine...but they definitely could've put more effort into it. Our tour was at 7:45, but we didn't even board the boat until 30 minutes later. Music on boat was so loud we couldn't hear the story. Overall I'd rate it a 1 star, but since my daughter absolutely loved it...I went with 3 stars.

The boat tour itself was beautiful. It was June and the weather was perfect. The scare part of it was not scary at all (in my opinion). However, there were many people who were screaming because they were freaked out. The actors didn't break character and you can most definitely appreciate all the effort that went into it.

The kids had a great time and even the five year old (who is pretty fearless in general) was not overly spooked. They do warn against taking young kids but in this case the warning about a pretty long walk was more pertinent. Tip—if you are a fat ass grandma with a bum hip don’t be the last one off the boat and therefore at the back the pack up the canyon. If you sit in the front on the top you will be last off. Trying to catch up with a snarling zombie on my heals and 1000% humidity is a bit much. The actors did get way too much in the faces of my older grandkids which I didn’t appreciate —If you have COVID concerns.

We have never been on the ghost boat tour so decided to try it. It really was fun and being close to Halloween made me feel that I wouldn’t miss the haunted house this year. There are many other receny reviews to give you an idea of the trip so I won’t repeat. What I didn't realize was that I thought it would be more like the daytime boat trip where you get out and there’s a short walk to the stop off point. My husband has some problem with doing fast walking but because I thought it would be a short walk that wouldn't be a problem. It was not short. There was another woman in front of us who also could not do strenuous walking so we really lagged behind. After reading other reviews I felt that it was somewhat a blessing in disguise. We weren’t slow on purpose but because we were I think we got more of the scare effect because there were only six of us in our two groups versus a whole pack of people. It really was fun but I wish we had known how long the trip really was because we may have reconsidered doing it. The one effect that I thought was the most interesting was lighting that made you feel that you were in water. All in all it was a fun trip. It helped to have the 20% off coupon but that could not be used to make a reservation online. The tickets needed to be purchased at one of the ticket booths downtown to get the discount.  Also there is an elevator that can be used to get from the boat to the upper level at the end.  We just needed to wait for the attendent to run it.
