We've been coming to River Rage for several years, and the quality of this business is in serious decline. I do want to say that the employees we interacted with were knowledgeable, helpful, and incredibly hard working. However, the grounds were in disrepair. The bathrooms...More

We have been going to River Rage for many years (4-5 times a year). Yesterday, July 4th, we took the whole family (14 of us) to go tubing and we were told that they don't have a Military discount anymore due to new management. We...More

DO NOT BRING KIDS. I can't emphasize this enough. On the very first rapid I witnessed a young girl about 13 y.o flip out backwards, hit her head on the rocks and struggle through the current. Next rapid I saw two kids each about 6-7...More

Easy to pay, sign up, restrooms were nasty, changing room lights were burned out. I should have run. They state anyone 3 and above will be fine. I am not a strong swimmer and when I asked about a life jacket, they were fairly non-commital....More

We went tubing again through River Rage about a week ago. I was not able to find a coupon anywhere for them. I also noticed that the competitors in the area had coupons making the rate about $1 different per person. A year ago suggested...More
