We had a blast tubing with our friends. We went on a Monday and had the Esopus to ourselves. The rental equipment was a little dirty but overall we had a good time.

I have to admit that I was nervous from some of the reviews that I had read about how dangerous this event was going to be. I am so glad that we went. My husband got knocked out of the tube once. We were totally fine. There were parts of the creek that felt like a lazy river and other... More

The Esopus is not a lazy river at Great Adventure. It is a Class 2 Rapids. Wear a helmet and water shoes. The water is cold, though not 60 degrees as claimed by the employee at Town Tinker. They take Visa & MasterCard.

Went with a group of friends recently and we had a great time but disclaimer, this is NOT a lazy river. We didn't rent helmets and I wish we had because the water levels were really low and we kept hitting rocks. 2 of my friends fell out of their tubes and were pretty banged up. They decided to get...

We were not sure what to expect for our day of tubing. I had heard about this place years ago, and we finally got there. After reading the review I have to admit I was a little concerned. I was thinking lazy river, but I realized we were heading to Class II white water rapids. We were traveling with our... More

This is a great time. Make sure you don't go too early in the season (before July) as the water will be ice cold. You can rent a tube and even sneakers if you need them. They will drive you up in a bus and drop you off at the top of the river. Then you can cruise down at... More

If you have *any* misgivings about whitewater, please just don't go. We went on dam release day by chance, so the water was particularly fast and rough. After capsizing repeatedly on rocks, I was dragged by my tube over the bottom, totally helpless, got crazy banged up and truly could have drowned. I've never been so scared in my life.... More

Glad I'm alive today to post this review. I should of went with my first gut feeling that this is not safe...for anyone especially on a release day. The worst part of this experience is that my husband & I took our 19 & 14 year old along. When we checked in & they said my 14 year old had... More

I went tubing for the first time, and it was a thrill that everyone must experience at least once in their lifetime. We paid $25 that included a ride to the drop of location, life vest, and a tube. You can also rent water shoes and a helmet if you prefer. Most people, as I did, brought their own shoes.... More
