This was probably the most scary and most fun thing I've ever done. That River threw me to the bottom and thrashed me around (almost drowned), but I was naive to think I didn't need to use a life jacket, and when I got dumped,...More

I have been on quite a few tubing excursions. Most of them disappoint with lots of rocks/low areas and very little rapids. This one we really had no issues with getting stuck due to low water and the rapids were fun. My husband who did...More

This is not the lazy river you are imagining right now. Use caution, practice safety measures, and strap your kids with a life vest because it will get a little rough. Read the signs that are posted at the check-in office prior to taking the...More

We had a couple of hours of fun tubing down the river with the boys. It is not a flat river, there are small rapids of level 1 and 2. It is a bit too long at end of end, but we really enjoyed it.

They must be 5 years old and at least 42" tall. I would highly suggest a life jacket and an experienced tuber for each child.
