We went with 10 families and all had a great time. They made sure we all got tubes and got dropped off together. We had children of all ages as well as adults. Definitely recommend. We also packed lunches and drove through Smoky Mountain and...More

Beautiful scenery and a slow ride down the river with some small rapids to make it interesting. Spots along the way to stop and relax make this 1 1/2 mile journey a perfect way to spend the day. At $10 per person you can ride...More

Too many rafters and the and they leave trash. They also use river for bathroom. Need guides and discipline.

Easy to pay, sign up, restrooms were nasty, changing room lights were burned out. I should have run. They state anyone 3 and above will be fine. I am not a strong swimmer and when I asked about a life jacket, they were fairly non-commital....More

We went tubing again through River Rage about a week ago. I was not able to find a coupon anywhere for them. I also noticed that the competitors in the area had coupons making the rate about $1 different per person. A year ago suggested...More

The employees were very nice. Facility was nothing to write home about but has some changing rooms and bathroom. Lockers are very small and recommend you keep everything in your car. They will keep your car keys for free. I thought the van/bus they took...More
