good time

staff was friendly, took the family run which takes 2 hours. was mellow enough for my wife but had some small rapids which kept me entertained. Cost more than some but the tubes were better. One guy had a tube from one of the cheaper places and he had a hole in his after the first rapid. Money well spent!




We had a great time last weekend at River Rat. We took the whole family in from out of town and they loved it!

Best Tubing in town

I know tubing isn't for everyone but I think everyone should try it at least once.
Two runs, the family run is good lay back and let the river take you away. The local kids jump from a big rock about half way great fun to watch.
The adventure run is a little stronger rapids and a little faster. More shaded though. My family loves to go on both.
I looked online before taking my family of 5 tubing to check prices and so on. And, I kept hearing the $8 all day $9 all day why pay more, WELL let me tell you why you pay a little more....... for the best service the best staff and the best TUBES. $13 is sooooo much better.
You get good size tubes at river rats so you don't have to walk the whole river, they are much stronger then the others in town so they are less likly to pop. The staff tells you where to go to have the best trip. They are also very nice.
If you like it and plan to go more then 2 times get the season pass. $30 all season.
The only down side is the picnic area at the upper river is not that great.
Pay more because you get more.
