The boats are very slow, but you can relax and enjoy the view down the river way. There are stops along the way if you want to get out to go shopping or eat at the restaurants.

I truly enjoy walking the Waterway. You can take little side trips to explore the area. Children may enjoy the boat ride.

Nice A/C excursion boat but since a dam has been constructed on the waterway, the boats are essentially landlocked and can no longer take passengers to Lake Woodlands.

Do not recommend unless you are playing Pokémon Go. The boat is hot, best place to sit is under the AC unit towards the front of the boat. Moves really slow and not an exciting view. Will try the trolley car next time.

We were visiting the Woodlands Mall and took a break to ride the Waterway Trolley and see the area. It was very relaxing in an air conditioned boat and we enjoyed the break. It is pretty inexpensive so I recommend this.

This is a short ride, but nice. You can learn a little bit about the area. The drivers are really nice.

typically, there is a 20 wait between trolleys, but they have construction right now. They go as fast as they can
