I took the time to read many reviews....some good and some bad before heading out in the rain with my daughter to enjoy this adventure on August 12th. While reading reviews, I realized the negative reviews must come from those who don't live in my great state. Georgia is very hot and humid during the summer months. Lucky for us, it was raining when we decided to go tubing. My daughter described the rain as a "stinging rain". The drops were so large and came down so hard, that it hurt. The fun we had bonding and working as a team down for the two hour experience will bring a lifetime of wonderful memories. A must if you enjoy the water.
