The boat ride had no booze prior to 12 noon, when you were already on the mountain. The mountain was STRICTLY for hiking unless you went to the 'inn' which was a little difficult to find. THERE IS NO OKTOBERFEST ON THE GROUNDS. Save your money-- go to an actual oktoberfest, this wasn't worth it.

food on the boat was over priced, not good and ran out quickly. Food at event was a madhouse-- a big line.

they say no food allowed on boat but many had backpacks full of snacks & beverages. Food at Oktoberfest is not that good...suggest you eat at the restaurant at Bear Mountain Inn on the property for the same money you'll spend on tasteless, cold Oktoberfest food.

The ticket said that you couldn't bring food and beverages on board the boat but the Circle Line crew did allow you to do that. You just couldn't bring any alcoholic beverages on with you.
