Excellent, efficient service. Great prices. Fun!!! The only problem is that there are just sooooo many people. The river was crowded early in the morning and 1/2 of the floats were still left. The experience would be better if they limited floaters or spaced them out a bit. Also, I feel like they should have some responsibility to clean the... More

Nice employees and facilities, neat town- kind of like a mini gatlinburg with German flare. Bakery great, margaritas looking over river good environment, rained whole time so we couldn't really walk much.

Everyone was excited about a day of tubing on the river and we got a good day in. We arrived by 10 and bought the all day deal (unlimited shuttles up to their drop off location by the zip line. We also opted for the water slide stop that is about 1/3 the way down. That makes for a good... More

We took our 3 kids, 8,6,and 3 down the river and had a blast! It looked like a storm but the people in the shop said if it started to storm just get out let your tube go and walk to the road they will come pick you up! They also said if we had to get out they would... More

To be totally honest here we are from Florida and we had a preconceived notion about what river tubing was all about. The price is great for tubing and we thought oh, we don't need a stick. Big mistake. We were surprised how low the river was and how we kept getting stuck. So, I would recommend that you rent... More

We have always used Helen Tubing, but decided to change it up and try Cool River Tubing. Cool River is $5 per person, instead of the $3 rate for Helen Tubing. I thought maybe it would be a better/higher quality experience. I'd say it's pretty much the same. Save yourself some money and go to Helen Tubing. Cool River was... More

Been to Helen many times but the first time we went tubing. I chose this one because it's competitor sounded too crowded and we were right. We walked right in, paid, jumped right on the bus, did the slide which our 7 year granddaughter loved, and tubed for three hours. It was a great way to spend a hot afternoon.

We had a good time. Staff was friendly and they were accommodating with our younger family of 4. Would use them again.
