Heart of The Missouri Tour - Battleship Missouri
This tour offers all of the Mighty Mo Pass amenities in addition to the strenuous Heart of the Missouri Tour that showcases the power behind the Mighty Mo, known to many as one of the greatest battleships of all time. This is the most requested guided tour, allowing you to see the mechanics behind this Iowa-class battleship which was designed for speed and firepower. What exactly does it take to move a ship three football fields long at a speed of nearly 40 mph? How does one 16 inch gun fire a 2,700 pound projectile to an incredible 23 miles with pinpoint accuracy? Not only will this tour answer some of your most frequently asked questions about one of history's most dominant warships, but you'll also get hands on training with lessons on lighting off one of the eight three story Babcock and Wilcox boilers. Grab on to the throttles, releasing the steam which drives the ship's massive propellers. Venture down Broadway, the longest and widest passage on the ship and meet (via video) the ship's last Chief Engineer, who will explain the work of the "snipes," the men who worked below the water line in the heart of the Missouri. If you're up for it, test your firing skills in the aft plotting room, where you will enter data into the Missouri's giant analog computers and pull the trigger that fires the big guns.
This is a physically strenuous tour and is not recommended for those with mobility constraints. You must be able to climb ten sets of ladders (Navy talk for steep, narrow stairs), step over a dozen two foot high obstacles and navigate through tight doorways and low overheads.
