This was my family's first tubing excursion in Helen. I can't compare and contrast the various tubing companies in the area, but I can comment on the river experience itself. We tubed on a Sunday, around 1:00. I knew it would be busy on a summer weekend, but it was even more crowded than I could have imagined. The river... More

this is one of the better tubing experience , there are two options , the shorter ride which is around a hour, and the longer ride which is two hours, it's fun for the family and is great for the hotter days, the only down side is you will find that you will have to get out of your tube... More

Just left very disappointed(2days ago). Eight miles out of Helen, the entire city of Atlanta decided to create a traffic jam to get into town. Gridlock! It took 1 1/2 hour just to get into town and then there is no parking. Add to that a literal 1 hour and 10 minute wait in line, I was ready to call... More

Well organized. They should make the $$ for the sticks less than the $5 they charge..else the place is well set for a family & friends day out in a very German setting.

Went with the family including two college age and one middle schooler. We had a great time floating down the river. Great family fun. Advice, get there early. We went in the afternoon and the river was packed! It made it a little difficult traversing the river. Price was great as a family event.

Water level was to low to flow comfortably down the river. Lots of big rocks in your way and you get stuck in them very easily. I had to get off the tube and push my tube off a rock. More work than fun.

My husband and I had a lot of fun rafting. This river was a really good time. Looking forward to bringing our kids back the next time we visit GA. Be sure to invest in the stick, worth the $5.

You won't find more family fun than this in Helen. Not only is it a fun time, but it's very affordable. A 1-3 hour personal tube for floating down the river can be as cheap as $5----or a little more if you want a life jacket and paddle-stick. In fact, if you have teens that you want out of your...

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
