I have to admit the Lazy River is always my favourite ride at any waterpark. We had just come from the hustle of Manhattan and were looking for a stop between New York and Philadelphia, this river tubing was perfect. The website says most of it. You do have to pay extra for parking and the facilities are basic but adequate. So the total for a family of 4 was $130 ( including parking ).
We went mid week, and there were no lines. We got changed into our swimming costumes, signed the waiver forms, paid and picked up our tubes and were in the river in 10 minutes. The first half of the ride was quite tame, you are just drifting down stream. The middle of the river is where the current is fastest, but its all quite slow, and the river was never deeper than 4 feet and seemed 18 inches to 2 feet in most places.
I cant see how people can have missed the signs for the burgers/hot dogs as there are 4 or 5 signs from up to half a mile before. It was great to have a break, and the cheesebuger, lemonade and icecream hit the spot.
After the stopping point the river was a little more interesting, with beautiful houses on the river bank on the PA side, and some 'rapids' ( very very tame - did not splash into the ring ) in the river. However the whole ride was through spectacular state park scenery, and was very beautiful and tranquil.
On getting out, there was a short walk up the hill to the road, and a bus was waiting to take us back to the car. I it was about 6 miles back to base.
We all loved the ride ( me the most though ), and totally recommend. The only 'gocha's' is you are commiting to the whole ride which took us 4 - 5 hours, when I had only planned 2 - 3. I think it depends on the speed of the river, and if I had less time I would look for the PA side where I think you can get shorter trips. Also this is not Disney , you are in the real countryside with mud, and real rocks etc. and DRT are working with that not against it.
