SS MUCKENTHALER: Life on the Mississippi


Join us as we steam down the Mighty Mississippi from St Louis to New Orleans. Meet a parcel of rogues, saloon girls, frontier's men, gamblers, gunfighters, con-men, Southern Belles, and roust-a-bouts that call the river home.

Guests will arrive at a frontier saloon; get involved with shoot-outs, bar fights, and defenestration before boarding the riverboat SS MUCKENTHALER.

Stand a turn at the helm of the riverboat and steer her along her course. Meet with Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher, and Huck Finn (? – if we can find actors)

Dance to the strains of the Dixieland band, and try your hand at games of chance, including Faro, cluck-luck, and poker.  Bid on treasures at the silent auction that will benefit the Muck as you “steam down the Ol’ Mississip’.”
