Fun place for the summer.

Be realistic when you go to the Salt River...you're floating down a river all day in 100 degree weather. Make sure to bring lots of sunblock, beverages, and some snacks. I'd... read more

We just went on the 2.5hr trip on June 19. The weather was 110+, so we opted to get there early, around 10am. Got our tubes (using discount coupons available at the local Taco Bell) and off we went. The tubes really are black rubber and they get H-O-T! I'd suggest you bring a beach towel or old sheet to... More

Went tubing when temp was 114 degrees. Great fun!!!! Did cover the tubes with a large beach towel which worked well so tubes were not hot. Water shoes are a must since there are a lot of rocks. Will be going again when back in town.

Always a blast!! I always pull off about half way down and jump off the rocks to the right of the beach, be careful and safe if you do but it's really fun.

This is our 3rd trip to Scottsdale & our 3rd trip tubing down the Salt River. It is the highlight of our vacation every time! It is such an incredibly relaxing and great way to spend a hot day. We get an extra tube to put the cooler & snacks in and off we go. Make sure you do the... More

My friends and family find tubing down the Salt River a great way to squelch the blistering summer heat. Floating down the cool water looking at the desert foliage and wildlife and talking with other tubers is so relaxing. BUT WORD OF WARNING. "WEAR LOTS OF SUNSCREEN". Its a great trip but it is the desert and you will burn.

Love the Salt River Tubing!!! There 's a bus picking you up and dropping you off at the meeting place. You can also choose the shorter or longer floating time along the river. There 're a few rapids just to add some fun. Make sure you wear PLENTY of sun protection, face and body, pack drinking water, wear water sandal... More

I go several times a year, mostly with adult friends but have taken the 3 yr old. So fun, but be aware of drunkenness, nudity, and foul language as floating down river. Its definitely a sun screen needed event and please take life jackets! I can say that once tried, you'll find yourself addicted to floating down the river over... More

Be realistic when you go to the Salt River...you're floating down a river all day in 100 degree weather. Make sure to bring lots of sunblock, beverages, and some snacks. I'd recommend double and triple bagging things, as they could always get wet. I'd also recommend wearing some type of water shoe, and be careful during the rougher parts of... More

The set up and ease of use is as good as possible handling large numbers of people the float is as fun as you make it I do it once a year just a relaxing way to cool off in the summer months

We travelled all the way from Ohio to experience this attraction along with many others. I have been here twice before and wanted to bring my husband. It was the weekend they opened so we checked out the website that said ALL DAY TUBE RENTAL We got there in the parking lot around 1pm and got ready, loaded the cooler... More
