Tickets For Under Water Dining At Lock 21 Sold Out In Less Than 12 Hours

Last June, we were among a select group of 12 people invited to a beta test of a unique experential tourism experiment called Under Water Dining At Lock 21, and predicted it would be a hit when it launched to the public.

Sure enough, it is. Under Water Dining—which takes visitors on a hands-on, historical dining experience through, inside and under the world’s highest hydraulic lift lock—announced its official launch for 2017 and tickets for their experiences sold out in under 12 hours!

 “We expected tickets to sell quickly, but we were overwhelmed by how quickly they sold out—the response has been incredible,” says Tracie Bertrand, Director of Tourism & Communications for Peterborough Economic Development.
