Kid Friendly and Affordable

Great Place all the staff is friendly. One of the few places that allow kids under 6( but over 3) to go tubing and are very affordable.

The check in process is great. You leave your keys at the desk with a photo ID and pick them up when you return. Word of warning beyond my better judgement I took my wallet with me instead of leaving it in the car. DO yourself a favor and leave it in the car! They provide tubes and life jackets... More

We took my 3 and 5 year olds, my nieces who are 12 and 13, my 10 year old nephew, and my mom (whose age shall not be listed) tubing on Wednesday. It was 90+ degrees, so the cold river felt fantastic. Even on a weekday it was pretty crowded, so I can't imagine a weekend! We got stuck a... More

We had a nice three hour outing with Cool River Tubing. Staff were friendly and professional (particularly the lady who was our bus driver). Everything was efficient and it was nice to be in the cool water during the hot summer month of July. At places the water was a little shallow, so it would be good to buy a... More

It had been 20 years since we had "Tubed the Hooch", but coming back was even better! It was now just me and hubby. We were less stressed but also less athletic. The water was up a little so there wasn't so many times that we got stuck. I did end up flipping my tube a couple of times and... More

Yes - it's busy on the weekends and holidays. Yes - it gets busier as the day goes on. Yes - it can be crowded. Yes - you will get wet. And YES - your float down the river all depends on the river's water level. Wear shoes that fit your feet (Chaco's, tennis shoes - NO crocs or flip... More

We debated which tubing company to use in Helen and stopped by both. Cool River Tubing was the tubing company that offered both short and long trips. It cost more than Helen tubing but was MUCH MUCH cleaner...the changing rooms and the bathrooms... We also appreciated that they had all the supplies needed...life jackets and tubing sticks. I'm sure both... More

Absolutely wonderful.. DJ and Clay were amazing guides..They were wonderful with the children, and the scared grandma. . Funny, knowledgeable, very safety conscious. I would definately recommend !!! I wish it was longer it was so much fun. I didn't want it to end.
