Perhaps it was the large amount of rain the day before we had our experience but to me the staff was not very informative about the perils one can encounter after such a significant rainfall. Mind you we were all set for some adventure but...More

Place was basic. Just pay and catch a bus to the river and float. Many reviews complained about scraping their legs etc. that is not the river rages fault, you could get scrapes with any tubing company. Ride was not as much fun as it...More

We had family recommend tubing down the river and originally went to another company that charges more for the same experience, so I'd recommend looking around when you go to make sure you get a good deal like at river rage. They drive you up...More

I have been tubing in Townsend with other places, and thought I would give River Rage a try. I was very disappointed. It had rained the day before, and I was not told how that would affect my experience. When I arrived, I signed a...More

One of the least expensive, most fun tubing adventures. Only 10 dollars a person, and you can go all day if you want. 3 to 5 minutes drive up the road equals an hour and half float back down the river. There were a few...More

Had a great time with the family. Plan to do this again when we return. River was low, only got stuck and had to get out and walk once or twice

The food was good! The restaurant service was ok. But then we went to tube and it was downhill from there. First of all, we called before we made the hour drive and were told they had tubes with bottoms for the little kids, which...More

This is the only tube place offering a shortened ride. My kids are young and 3 hours seems like too much, so we did a 1 1/2 hour version and it was good. Beware, the upper route is a bit rough. We made it through...More

Do not go to this tubing company! The staff were VERY rude and were not helpful at all. Once we paid no one instructed us what to do next. We sat outside for about 15 minutes while the shuttle drivers sat around cussing before anyone...More
