Theme for June and July Cruises: "The Good, the Bad, & the Dead."  (Theme for the September Cruise TBD)

This wild west interactive mystery will keep you on the edge of your seat! Folks are upset over the Riverboat coming to town and fighting over what will happen to the Saloon.  Miss Sally and her gals are sorely troubled and the Widow thinks this is just another excuse for carrying on.  There's a mysterious cowboy clearly up to something and the Sheriff's worried that Miss Annie will try to shoot up the whole town.  Could all these shenanigans lead to murder? You better believe it, partner! So hitch up your petticoats and help the Sheriff solve the crime.  This rootin' tootin' hilarious show is a must see.
