"Not worth the time"
July, 2017
I was looking forward to this as a way to see Branson and the lake. We went to a mountain, the lake and then back. Smelling the fuel as you sit on the DUCK was horrible, the emcee, Captain Woody was obnoxious, and then we just went in the lake and did a circle and back out. I would not recommend this to anyone.

"Good for kids, Adults meh"
June, 2017
Knew it was going to be a long trip before we even got on the "Duck". They sell or give "duck calls" to kids, cute, but extremely annoying after about 10 minutes into the hour long ride. Then we get on the "Duck" the guide is telling us to move up, I passed on a row that had no leg room and my husband and I sat one row back, the guide looks at us and continues to say to move up, we ignored him after telling him we needed the leg room, even then your knees almost touch the seat in front of you, they have the rows so close in order to pack in as many peeps as possible even though they have plenty of "Ducks".
The remaining trip was spent with a kid kicking the seat, even after asking him to stop, then him "quacking" in my ear, to much trouble for the father to teach his kid manners. They drive around a rather desolate area with fairly interesting old military vehicles scattered around. Then stopping for a quick overview of the lake. One nice thing, they did allow each kid on the ride to "drive the Duck" which just drove around in a circle and not really touring the lake as we expected. Save your money if your not traveling with young kids and go see a show. We spent almost $60 to be miserable. I have 4 grandkids ages 11, 10, 9 and three and so I travel with little ones often (although mine do mind), so if I say this ride is annoying, then it IS annoying.

We visited Ride the Ducks 14 years ago when our kids were young and really enoyed it. We were back again this year, and did the adventure again, with our grown kids. Have to say, I think we enjoyed it more this time. What a fun way to spend time with kids of all ages.

"Lots of fun"
August, 2016
We took the grandchildren to ride the ducks - it was a lot of fun. My husband and I have been multiple times a year for many years and this is the first time for the Ducks. We did it for the children but we ended up totally enjoying it ourselves. We even got to see parts of Branson we have never seen. Very good time ... We always get our tickets from Reserve Branson. Always wind up with great tickets

"Excellent family fun"
August, 2016
My husband, my 7 yr old son and myself have been several times to Branson but have never been on ride the ducks. We totally enjoyed ourselves. Capt Smokey was a great captain and all the information that he shared with us about how the town had come about was so informative. He was very knowledgeable with his history and telling us about some of the shows to see was kind of nice. He even recommended a few places to go that were not expensive and would be a great family events. We really felt like we knew a little more about Branson when we were done. We enjoyed learning about Table Rock lake and the old military equipment. They did a great tribute to our military. We even enjoyed the little military museum up above there gift shop. So much fun for all ages and we would recommend it to everyone. Definitely enjoyed riding the ducks with Capt Smokey.

"Great time with the ducks"
July, 2016
My husband and I have been to Branson and have ridden the ducks before but this time our kids got to experience it with us. They had a great time and both got to drive the duck while on Table Rock lake. Our driver and captain were both great sources of knowledge and made the experience the best yet!!

Our second time on the Branson Ducks. I can appreciate the tribute to the vets (because my husband is a vet) by showing the old vehicles, but getting to the water takes too long. The old jokes and the fumes from the vehicle were a little much to take. What happened to giving the quackers away during the ride and encouraging everyone to quack at the passing Ducks vehicles? Make the ride shorter, reduce the price and give the quackers away again. And give vets a decent discount and we’ll come again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our ride aboard the ducks. Captain Candy did a great job entertaining us with commentary and corny jokes. We got great views from the mountain top and the splash into the water was exciting. Hearing some history of the vehicles and the dam construction was interesting and the ride went quickly. Definitely a good activity in Branson.

You’ll enjoy the history as you ride the duck around and see the military vehicles. I found it to be very interesting. Then when we went in the water, we continued with more history and fun for the kids to drive the duck. My grandkids loved it!
