Have you ever ridden a duck? I have twice. Well, it's not a real duck, just a vehicle that can go on land or water, so it's called a duck. It's a pretty neat experience to have at least once.
To Ride the Ducks http://www.bransonducks.com/ in Branson, MO means you board this bus-type vehicle that has no windows so it's all open out top. The driver is the tour guide who speaks into a microphone during the entire trip explaining all about Branson and making silly and not-so-funny jokes. Don't worry, though, because when you board the Duck you get a quack-maker that you can quack whenever the tour guide wasn't funny. :)
Most of the ride is on land, but eventually you roll quickly down this hill and splash into the water without too much warning! Sometimes you get splashed a bit but we didn't when we went. It depends on how windy the weather is, I guess.
You're only in the water for about 10 minutes, and the driver lets the kids take turns steering. Then, back to land you go and that's about it.
Riding the Ducks is something to experience at least once. You can go in Branson as well as in Philadelphia, Memphis, & Baltimore.
