We love tubing in Helen. There's not much difference in the two tubing businesses. Cool River is a dollar or two more expensive, for some reason. My kids like their tube color better, though. Most people on here recommended a stick, but unless the river is low, a shove with your foot will work. I don't like having to keep... More

We had a blast! But I am certain if we had not come prepared it wouldn't have been as fun. Water shoes and push sticks are a must! Thank you TA reviewers for all the helpful advice!

For starters, we had the best time, the second time around. So we did do this twice. With that being said the first time was a HUGE learning curve. The water was really low and I had to walk about the first forty five minutes of the two hour ride. We didn't rent a stick and found out fast that... More

Great price, parking convenience, and transport to the launch site. We read other reviews on Trip Advisor before arriving and brought our own stick and old shoes which are a must. Two hours of fun passed quickly and we wished we could have done it again but we were only here for a short time. Lovely time.

We went on a Monday late in the day about 5:30 pm and it was almost empty on the river. We enjoyed a nice float without bumping into many folks. The water is cool but after you get wet it feels good.. $5 each is a great price. They offer straps to tie tubes together. We did not get a... More

We went to the ziplines and had an awesome time! The guides were great!. Tubing is free when you zipline and that was fun as well. They take pictures of your group toward the end. They let you purchase a cd for $10 and they actually got some really good shots of our family so I was really happy! Highly... More

Only $5 per person for 2-3 hours of fun and adventure. Small lockers are available for just $2 for those needing to stash clothing or personal items before hopping the bus to the drop off location. Wear water shoes or old tennis shoes to help navigate through occasional shallow areas. Flip-flops will be lost. Rent a stick! We didn't and... More

We took my 12 year old and 6 yr old! They both loved it! Great for any ages! Make sure to have water shoes or tennis shoes cause you will have to get up and push your tube if the water levels are low. It is very crowded but still fun! Dont take cell phones or cameras they will get... More

$10 for 2 adults to do the long trip. Staff is always pleasant! Lines move fast. We tube every summer when we come to Helen.
