I can’t think of a better way to relax on the Chattahoochee. I like cool river better than their competitor personally. They have slides available but I never take advantage of that. Enjoy!

Excellent facilities and very helpful staff. The river is a nice distraction from all the tourist traps in the town. Great way to spend an hour or two.

The whole thing was great. Buy your trip upstairs, come down and get your tube ( and life jackets for kids) get on the bus. You don't wait long, as soon as a bus fills up, they're taking off. Probably a 7 minute ride later,...More

My friend and I had a blast on the 2 hour river tubing! Nice gentle ride with just a few larger drops. Can’t beat $8 for 2 hours of fun. Take an extra $2 to rent a locker!

Sorry, I do not know. I would suggest calling them next late May. I don't believe they open until Memorial Day. The depth of the water has a lot to do with it too.
