What a fun experience!! Check in early and get $1 off drink vouchers, you can bring your drink on the boat! The ride is a blast and they tell you about the mansions during the slow wake areas. We got our pictures taken and for$31 took them home as a souvenir. My only regret is we didn't have cash for tipping, they deserved it!
