Ride The Ducks Haunted Ducks Tours Begin Today
Thursday tours added in 2014 due to popular demand
NEWPORT, Ky. – In time for Halloween, Haunted Ducks Tours offered through Ride The Ducks Newport will open to the public Thursday, Oct. 2.
In addition to Friday and Saturday nights, 2014 marks the first season Haunted Duck Tours are offered on Thursday evenings due to the growing popularity of this Greater Cincinnati Halloween must-do.
Haunted Ducks Tours are the most unique Halloween-themed tour in the region, with guests traveling on land and through the Ohio River on Ride The Ducks Newport’s signature customized amphibious vehicles crafted from models used during World War II.
Haunted Ducks Tour guides will share local ghost stories and the lore of such famously haunted landmarks as Music Hall, Taft Museum and the Thompson House. Guests will be armed with “Wacky Quackers” to scare away ghosts on the perfect Halloween tour for anyone with a taste for spooky fun.
Haunted Ducks Tour times are 6 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 8 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, from Oct. 2 through Nov. 1. Due to the Light the Night Walk on Oct. 9, Haunted Ducks Tours will not run that evening.
Admission is $17 for Haunted Ducks Tours, which is recommended for guests 16 years of age and older.
Four boats are in the Newport fleet, each seating up to 35 guests. Standard Ride The Ducks tours are offered between noon and 5 p.m. The complete operating schedule can be found on the Ride The Ducks Newport website, www.newportducks.com.
