Row, Row Your Boat

Growing up the Canoes was one of my favorite attractions. My entire family including cousins and grand parents would board one boat and paddle away. Though probably not as fast as the canoe racers, we would circumnavigate the Rivers of America in a quick time. These photos are circa 1959 or 1960.

Beautfil pic. Love the old mill and Columbia in the scene.

Matterhorn - Do you know what the ride duration time is for the canoes? Have you ever timed it?

I recall it being between 12-15 minutes, but that was a long time ago. You didn't get to rotate through to a break until you made the allotted rounds anyway. If you wanted to go slower, nobody was timing you except your partner. And the lunch break was a rush to and from The Pit in 30 mins.
