Wonderful experience. We brought the dogs and had a lot of fun. Relaxing in some spots but the a little faster in other spots. Very inexpensive we went in October so the water was a little chilly but definitely worth it. Can't wait to go...More

We did this with our 7 year old daughter and my 13 year old niece! We had a blast only wish we did the longer ride down the river! Get the stick for five!! It is worth it and helps!!

Although the river was a bit low in spots we had a great time floating down it. Get the push stick! It comes in handy when trying to steer around the rocks in the creek! Needless to say, we got soaked.

We really enjoyed tubing. The only thing is that I wish the tubes were a bit much spacious for the larger clientele. Nevertheless we made it work and had a blast. The price was definitely right. For 2 adults and 1 child we paid $15....More

We love cool river tubing. You sometimes have to take the shorter float because of river levels but both are beautiful and relaxing. The facilities are great and buses are constantly running so you do not have to wait long to get on the river....More

Labor Day weekend. The bus ride to the launch is not for the faint-of-heart! Opted for the one-hour float. Launching into the river is a short easy walk down the ramp and into the river. Some fast water and rapids pepper the slow floating through...More

Helpful staff answered all our questions and helped us out of the river at the end. They have limited shower facilities but lots of changing rooms. During peak hours the place is packed and waits may be long for the bus.

Took the short trip that lasted a bit over an hour on a weekday at the end of August - not crowded, water flow was gentle except for a few quicker but still mild "rapids", and we all had a blast. Our 65 pound Doberman...More

We did the ropes course, zip line and the river tubing. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The ropes course is both fun and can be challenging based on the level you want to try. They offer a separate course for little ones, one for...More

Went on the short trip with family twice, once in August and once today(Sept 2017). Fun trip both times. The only cons: doors to the bathrooms are very light and space is tight, making it very easy for people to unintentionally door you in the...More

We did the lower. The water last week was higher and flowing faster, of course. This week it's lower, but in doing the lower he should not have too many problems. Hope you'll have a good time. Our kids and grands always... More
