Mark Twain Riverboat is an attraction, located at the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California, on which passengers embark on a scenic, 12-minute journey around the Rivers of America. Originally named Mark Twain Steamboat when the park opened in 1955, the stately, 5/8-scale stern-wheeler was the first functional riverboat to be built in the United States for fifty years. Other Disney riverboat attractions now appear at Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Paris.

Famous quotes containing the words mark twain, mark and/or twain:

    If you had made the acquiring of ignorance the study of your life, you could not have graduated with higher honor than you could to-day.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    But the mark of American merit in painting, in sculpture, in poetry, in fiction, in eloquence, seems to be a certain grace without grandeur, and itself not new but derivative; a vase of fair outline, but empty,—which whoso sees, may fill with what wit and character is in him, but which does not, like the charged cloud, overflow with terrible beauty, and emit lightnings on all beholders.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The very ink in which history is written is merely fluid prejudice.
    —Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
