The duck boats are back at Stone Mountain Park after undergoing maintenance reviews in the wake of last week's deadly collision in Philadelphia.
The Ride the Duck boat rides stopped running last Wednesday. Herschend Family Entertainment, the Norcross-based company that makes and operates the land-water vehicles, ordered maintenance reviews on all of its boats after one collided with a barge in the Delaware River in Philadelphia. Two people were killed.
Jeanine Jones, a Stone Mountain Park spokeswoman, said the boats are running two at a time, but all five boats will be in rotation this weekend.
Herschend said operations are still suspended in Philadelphia, pending further investigation.
