RiverQuest: Spirits of the Riverfront (10/23/09)

This event is sold out. Thanks for your interest in RiverQuest programs--catch us again next year!


RiverQuest conjures up the Spirits of the Riverfront again this fall aboard EXPLORER, the world's first green vessel built expressly for education. Our third-annual installment features the antics of a zany crew in a 2-hour tour on Fri. 10/16, Sat. 10/17, Fri. 10/23 and Sat. 10/24.

Passengers hear 13 ghastly tales--some truer than others--of life and after-life along the rivers and waterways of Southwestern Pennsylvania, as well as other watery locales like the Florida and Alabama bayous where EXPLORER was built. Tours depart the North Shore Dock at 7:00pm sharp.

RiverQuest and special guests share stories of storm-ravaged rivers and lakes, legends of deadly fog, and conspiracy theories surrounding the ghost bomber of the Mon. Other seasonal activities and sweet treats are included.Because of the nature of the content, this tour is most appropriate for visitors ages 8 and up.

Please note: there is a $3 to $5 charge for parking in Carnegie Science Center's parking lots, based on availability.

Program operates rain or shine, and some portions of the program are held topside on the covered observation deck where we can see the city. Adult tickets are $20; Seniors (62+) and children 17 and under are $15. For additional information or for assistance with purchasing tickets, call RiverQuest at 412-231-2712 during normal business hours. Note that adverse wind conditions will necessitate conducting the program on the vessel parked at the dock.
