“A Thrill Seekers Must”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

My son and husband took the challenge and tried out the wake boarding. They were beginners and were given the basic how to's and were sent out to the small pond for practice. When they mastered standing up, the graduated to the big lake. We paid for two hours and they were definitely worn out when their time was up. They had a difficult time at first, but finally got the hang of the line speed and were able to go part way around the lake, however, they had several HARD falls. I would not recommend this for a family with younger kids. My younger children went to the trampoline park, Spring Loaded next door.

Hi Chrissear,
So glad your husband and son decided to learn how to wakeboard! So sorry about the hard falls, our advice would be to spend a little more time on the beginner cable... not to be in such a hurry to graduate. Learning a new sport takes time and two hours really isn't very long! That is why we have a beginner lake and the main cable.
I would recommend a couple more visits, for most people who come to TSR, they find that the third visit is the magic visit, when it all falls into place. The kids would also benifit from a four hour or full day pass, believe it or not, they do have the energy!
The beginner lake is perfect for younger kids too, our day campers start at the age of 5! They love the gentle pull of the "Lil Bro" and they love being the center of attention, riding one at a time while everyone watches. They will be in no hurry to move up to the main cable!
I hope you can make it back to TSR, maybe try our early bird special - weekday mornings in summer 9:00 to noon just $22.00 - includes rentals!

“Love TSR!”

Great for kids and big kids of all ages. If you're riding the cables, the prices are much better during their "early bird" from 9-12am.
