When I first saw this, my initial impression was as a Disney-esque kiddie ride. And it is, to a point. But it was a nice break from the walking. We went in the evening while the Christmas lights were up. The boat driver (Nikita?) was very enthusiastic in her talk, which I imagine is tough when you give the same speech a dozen or more times a day. She was also very knowledgeable about the area and kept everyone entertained. The price was about 8 bucks, and for the money, it was well worth it. Ride runs about 35 minutes.
