“go to the tubing in hendersonville!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Extremeley rude even while taking my money, should have known at that point it was gonna suck. 2 hour session really 1 hr 45 min, but started late 410 pm and stopped at 535, so really about and hour and a half. DO NOT GO NEAR THE PLACE. Workers about equivalent to a cheap carnival baloon & dart carnie person.

“Mud fest”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Do not waste your time or money. This is a tiny hill, that was not even totally covered in snow. The landing area was a giant mud pit. There was no snow at the bottom at all. By early afternoon the tubing area was covered in mud from the landing zone. It was a huge soggy, over-priced mess.

“Lots of fun”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

How can you not like snow tubing? This activity seems to get more and more popular. Tube World is located down towards the far west side of town and was actually our family's first tubing experience.

They have a decent setup, are able to blow snow if needed and are open into the evening. Lots of fun. You have to sign a waiver of course. The only small complaint I'd have is that the parking is somewhat limited and there aren't many places to sit for those who aren't tubing. By contrast, there is a place in Boone that has similar slopes, similar equipment and pricing but they have a nice place to sit down and warm up.

“Fun, but muddy and closed the lanes before the session was over.”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Like many of the other reviewers have said, this place is much smaller than it looks on the website and very muddy. Once you are off the tubing lanes, you have to go through a swamp. They could put down more straw or something to fix this. Kids don't mind mud though and the group we were with had a great time until the end. They advertise that you are paying for a 2 hour session. Then when you buy your tickets you find out that the session ends 15 minutes before the hour. That wouldn't be so bad, but the night we were there they closed the left 10 minutes before that. For the price you pay that is not right. All the kids had been expecting another slide or two and were disappointed they could not go again. When we complained the management was rude and unresponsive. I guess once they have your money they don't care.
