Fun but super cheap tubes!

Their add says "why pay more at the other places when the tubes are the same" but trust me, they're not the same. We first checked out a place up the road that cost more but had... read more

This was our first experience tubing and not a great one. Staff dropped us off with vague wave toward a steep bank that was the put-in. We were unprepared for the current and yelling frantically as a few kids were swept downstream while another's tube took off without her. The driver seemed oblivious and took off as we stumbled and... More

So after reading all the reviews I felt the urge to write about our experience this past summer. We thought how fun a relaxing day on the river with our kids 5 years old at the time, 16yr, & 24yr. We got there and I went in to pay I asked the girls at the desk if it was safe... More

My family and I went tubing this past July. I thought that this would be a fun experience for the family as it was advertised as such. They advertised a "family float" as well as a more dangerous float if you were up for the challenge. My husband and I along with our 3 children age 13, 11, and 4... More

My wife and I enjoyed River Rat tubing during the summer. It was a great way to cool off on a hot day. I recommend it for families and couples who want to have a great day together.

We visited River Rage for what we believed would be a safe tubing adventure with our friends and family. It was advertised as a safe family activity suitable for young children and no experience necessary. This turned out to be a terrifying experience. This activity is not suitable for children under age 12. There is no way to stay together... More

River was very low when we went so had a walk a bit but the views are amazing. Also, no crowds since late in the season. Very friendly staff and a great deal (only $10) for all day tubing.

This was our second time coming here. Never disappointed. You can tube down the river all day. Bus runs frequently so there was no waiting. Tubes are in great condition. The river is a little chilly but you get used to it quickly. Fun for the whole family.

We went to River Rage in Aug 2016. The day we went the temperature was in the 90s. At first my wife and I thought it was going to be a slow boring ride down the river. When in fact, it was a nice mix of rapids and gentle currents. We have three kid 10, 8, and 6. All of... More
