The Showboat was a ride located in Lagoon Lake, it opened 

In 1959. It would cruise Lagoon’s lake in search of an elusive dragon.

The loading dock was in the northwest corner of Lagoon Lake. This dock would later be used for the Water Skeeters. A new loading dock for the Water Skeeters was built on the northeast corner of the lake which was accessed by a bridge going over the Wild Kingdom Train. A large metal gate (which had been in place since the days of the Showboat) remained until sometime around the late ’80s or early ’90s. It was removed and placed in a storage area or “bone yard” behind Pioneer Village. It could be seen there from the Lagoon Trail until vegetation grew up around it.
