I've read some of the other bad reviews and I just laugh at some of the things they are complaining about! We go tubing all the time in the TX hillcountry, so we know what to expect. First off, you are tubing down a NATURAL river, not the lazy river at a water park! Things happen when Mother Nature decides... More

I wouldn't recommend taking a child under 10 on the upper unless they are a very good swimmer. Even with a life vest some of the rapids are very rough. The company doesn't make you wear shoes but if you go without you could be seriously hurt. I had on water shoes and a rock cut through my shoe and... More

We had so much fun, we did the upper river twice today. Can't beat the price either. Other companies charge more but have shorter river trips. Definitely worth the money.

The service was awful. No information was given and the staff acted like it was a burden to serve us. They told us we could take a bag of drinks and then told us that we couldn't once we had already purchased our tickets. They interrogated us like police, and were overall rude, after we had payed and would not... More

My wife and I experienced this first time adventure and we had a blast!!! ALL the staff were super friendly and very helpful, they answered all our first timers questions and even gave us tips for the trip. Not sure why the other reviews are complaining about all the danger, ALL the other companies were on the same river as... More

We ate at the restaurant first before tubing- There was only 1 other table when we got there, so we had our pick of tables. By the time we were done 5 other tables had come in and they put all of them directly next to us, basically in one section of the restaurant and the rest of the place... More

We've used River Rage several times and it's always been good. We enjoy floating the lower better than the upper, but both are nice.

After reading the reviews on here I had my mind made we were NOT going here. Everyone said they were rude and dirty. Well the first night we were in town I was starving so we stopped at the first restaurant we seen which happened to be Little River BBQ which is right next door to River Rage. They were... More

My Son-in-Law likes this location. Yes, this is a cheaper Float Trip company (green tubes), however, they are not refurbishing as they go which is sad and I am a visual person so it was a big turn off. Otherwise, I can't say anything else negative of our experience. If you are on a budget it is not a no... More

Had family in town and wanted to take them tubing, only the upper run was open due to lack of rain. The young girls behind the counter were kind and courteous (go PF Tigers) the van driver was informative and the water was cold. A couple of good rapids despite the low level took 2 runs down the river. Our... More
