    I got dumped
    Christopher_M, Oct 2022
    Mannnnnn I got dumped after this cuz my ex thought I was trying to make her work out instead of having a date. Smh y’all need figure y’all stuff out I deserve a refund.
    Response from Host, Nov 2022
    Hi Christopher, We are sorry to hear you got dumped on your date. Our pedal boats are human-powered and so they do require a touch of exercise to keep them moving. Our boats feature a large hull for increased buoyancy that creates a super stable and smooth ride. And our large paddlewheel makes for much more efficient pedaling so the boat moves with much greater ease compared to other pedal boats on the market. Our swan boats glide on the surface of the water creating less friction than other human-powered boats. So while our boats do require human power to keep them moving, we pride ourselves are providing the best pedal boat to explore the lake. Kind Regards.
    The employees were nice....

    Night time fun
    Felicia_W, Aug 2022
    Had so much fun padding around. We laughed so much while learning to navigate the swans the lake was a nice size.well do this again. It would be nice if they had a timer or clock on the swan just in case you didn't bring your phone with you
    Unfortunately they didn't...
    JonathanE_A, Jul 2022
    Unfortunately they didn't let me go up and enjoy with my wife, we arrived 5 minutes late because I drove 1 hour and found traffic and they didn't allow me to go up and enjoy my ride. Very bad part of the person who was working.
    10/10 but get there early
    mariah_t, Jul 2022
    I had so much fun with my boyfriend for the surprise best date night. Just go early because the line gets really long.

    Alexis_S, Jul 2022
    It was a cool experience, it just doesn’t make sense that you have to wait in a long line even though you made a reservation. Other than that everything was pretty cool.
    Date Night Idea
    Anthony_T, Jul 2022
    Great night date idea, bring a little picnic basket and hang out on the water. I also suggest bringing a speaker to set the mood
    If you like piña coladas…

    LaKisha_C, Jun 2022
    Bring your Meagan knees honey! This was a workout. But it was very beautiful when the sun went down and all of the illuminated swans were moving about the water. Played our music and had a romantic time with my husband. We slept good that night. Lol
