Fun but super cheap tubes!

Their add says "why pay more at the other places when the tubes are the same" but trust me, they're not the same. We first checked out a place up the road that cost more but had... read more

My wife and I enjoyed River Rat tubing during the summer. It was a great way to cool off on a hot day. I recommend it for families and couples who want to have a great day together.

We visited River Rage for what we believed would be a safe tubing adventure with our friends and family. It was advertised as a safe family activity suitable for young children and no experience necessary. This turned out to be a terrifying experience. This activity is not suitable for children under age 12. There is no way to stay together... More

River was very low when we went so had a walk a bit but the views are amazing. Also, no crowds since late in the season. Very friendly staff and a great deal (only $10) for all day tubing.

This was our second time coming here. Never disappointed. You can tube down the river all day. Bus runs frequently so there was no waiting. Tubes are in great condition. The river is a little chilly but you get used to it quickly. Fun for the whole family.

We went to River Rage in Aug 2016. The day we went the temperature was in the 90s. At first my wife and I thought it was going to be a slow boring ride down the river. When in fact, it was a nice mix of rapids and gentle currents. We have three kid 10, 8, and 6. All of... More

Their add says "why pay more at the other places when the tubes are the same" but trust me, they're not the same. We first checked out a place up the road that cost more but had way better tubes. We decided we'd go with cheaper & I wish we hadn't. I asked our driver (on the way to the... More

The staff was extremely rude when I was paying for the tickets and water shoes. They gave me a pair that wasn't my size and said well that's not their problem. This was my First time ever water tubing and after today I wouldn't go back. The water was low and I keep getting stuck between rocks (which they didn't... More

The staff are nice but the floats are very uncomfortable. Some people in our party flipped, and lets just say that we have the scars and bruises to prove that this can be very dangerous. I would do this again, but I don't think this is ideal for children. You need to be a very strong swimmer. The rapids are... More

Friendly people, cool water on a hot day(!). Some little mild rapids to give a little thrill. It's fun that it is not overladen with rules just like when we were kids - there were lots of people on the river so it felt perfectly safe. If we didn't have so many things planned for the day we would have... More
