There are several paid parking lots in the East Bank of the Flats with one located directly adjacent to Collision Bend Brewery; however, there is limited street parking. Guest can also take advantage of the Cleveland RTA rail system with the Green and Blue lines dropping guests just a few feet from Collision Bend Brewery.  Please plan ample time for parking so you can arrive to your tour at least 15 minutes before the schedule departure time.

Our tours run year round rain or shine.

  • In the Summer the bus is an open air ride without AC.
  • If it’s raining we keep the windows closed, we don’t want to get wet either.
  • During cold weather we turn on both heaters and keep the windows closed.

How far in advance should I buy my ticket?2020-04-05T12:25:09-04:00

Tickets are sold on a first come first serve basis and we have limited seating on the bus. So it’s always best to purchase tickets in advance. Occasionally we can honor last-minute ticket sales.

How is the seating arranged?2020-04-05T12:23:54-04:00

Seating is on a first come first served basis. If you have a ticket you have a seat and there isn’t a bad seat on the bus. If you want to sit together we suggest you arrive early.

Can we bring alcoholic beverages on the bus?2020-04-05T12:24:34-04:00

Sorry, beer and wine only, please. Passengers will be asked to provide ID to prove they are 21 years of age or older. If you bring a cooler on-board the bus it must fit on your lap. All beverages must be closed when you board the bus and no open containers will be allowed off the bus.

Is the tour appropriate for all ages?2020-04-05T12:25:19-04:00

No, The jokes heard on the bus are similar to the ones heard in a comedy club. No one under 13 is permitted, we recommend following guidelines of bringing your teenager to a comedy club.

Are car seats allowed?2020-04-05T12:23:37-04:00

No, because there are no seat belts on the bus no small children or babies are allowed. Refunds will not be issued for tickets purchased for small children.

Is it appropriate to leave a gratuity?2020-04-05T12:07:40-04:00

Gratuities are never expected, but always appreciated by the drivers and comedians. Believe us, once you’ve gone on the tour you’ll want to tip them.

How should I dress?2020-02-24T13:24:01-05:00

Wear anything you like except your birthday suit, however, keep in mind our bus is an open-air bus similar to a trolley, so we recommend you wear weather appropriate clothing. If it’s cold or raining we will roll down the clear vinyl window coverings and turn on the heaters if needed to prevent the cold air or rain from getting in the bus as best we can. The bus does not have air conditioning.

How long does the tour last?2020-04-05T12:24:15-04:00

Each tour will last about 90 minutes with a 15-minute bathroom break in the middle of the tour.

What is the cancellation policy?2020-04-05T12:15:24-04:00

Our policy is NO REFUNDS. Why would you want to cancel such a fun time?

That being said, in the rare event we don’t have enough passengers registered for a tour, we may have to cancel it. We will do our best to make this decision 2 hours before tour time. All passengers will be notified using the contact information you provided during the booking process.

Is the bus wheelchair accessible?2020-04-05T12:24:50-04:00

Unfortunately not. The bus doesn’t have a wheelchair lift. However we do our best to accommodate all of our passengers and can store mobility devices in the bus if necessary. Please call us to discuss your specific requirements.
