We toured with the Minneapolis Queen. It's quite an informative 90 min tour, going through locks and learning about the history of the river in the area. There is comfortable seating, restrooms, a full bar and snacks available on board. What it isn't is a...More

We enjoyed our river cruise. It was 90 minutes long and began with a trip upriver through one of the locks. This process took a while but was actually pretty interesting (especially to my son). Then we came back through the lock again and cruised...More

We went on this for our anniversary. It was relaxing and fun but I wish it had been a little longer! Worth the price if you buy though Groupon

This attraction is a river boat cruise. You might be mistaking this attraction for a hotel.
