Cast off on a scenic half-mile adventure into the wilds of old America aboard a steam-powered paddler. Board the 19th-century-inspired Mark Twain riverboat nestled in the heart of Frontierland and embark on a relaxing sightseeing voyage around Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island.

Sights to See
During this charming, 14-minute journey into America’s early frontier, sharp-eyed explorers can observe a menagerie of sights along the river’s edge, including:

    • The new north bank of the Columbia Gorge, complete with a beautiful waterfront and 5 sparkling waterfalls
    • The rustic cabin of a frontier settler
    • An idyllic Native American village
    • A busy beaver at work chewing on the train trestle
    • A moose enjoying a leisurely lunch
    • Haunted Mansion lurking in the shadows
    • A skunk staring down raccoons
    • Mountain lions relaxing in the sun
    • An osprey guarding its nest
    • The Disneyland Railroad steaming into the wilderness

Along the way, listen to lively narration about a time when traveling was as much about new discoveries as it was about transportation.
