Gondola Boats in Omaha

On Con-Agra Lake (the little man-made body of water in The Heartland of America Park) there are now gondola boats to compliment the little tour boat that was already there. The gondola boats are piloted by guys who look like real Venetian gondoliers. The little tourist boat is still there, but I'm not sure what rides cost now. It used to be only a quarter to ride the regular tour boat.
