It was ok...The river level is too low making the flow difficult. We were getting stuck in every rock down the river so we decided not to run the entire ride because It wasn't that pleasant...staff were nice...

Get the sticks and tie up with a buddy. We never really got stuck that way. The wait was about an hour, but they were kind enough to distribute cold ice water. Once you were on the river all cares melted away, what a blast!!!...More

We went down the river Saturday with Cool River! There were tons of people but even with all those people the wait wasn't very long at all... especially compared with what we were told the wait would be at the water park!

If you go first thing when they open then it's not near as crowded. The service was fine but the worse part was having to smell those life jackets the whole time. I'm pretty sure that they have never been washed before.

Great question! Their competitor does photos, but last time I went, they did not.

Not sure about latest time to start tubing....but the long trip takes about 5 hours. If you decide on the short trip - I would allow 3 hours. All will depend on how swift the current is on any particular day. Hope that... More
