A boat ride is a type of attraction=* where people board a boat, are taken for a short trip and returned to their startpoint, often faring via nice views with a guide giving some historical background. The boat trips are never functional.

These boat rides are typically found in historical city centers, near natural features such as fords or in theme parks. When used in a theme park, this tag should only be used for the gentle attractions.
