Theme Park
River Rat Tubing offers river-tubing fun for the whole family. You can take it easy or go a little faster with two sections of the Little River available for tubing. The upper section, the adventure float, offers a scenic trip along tree-lined banks that features rapids and swimming holes. The lower section serves as a family area with a rope swing, small area of more gentle rapids, and a rock jump. Bring your swimsuit and water shoes. Tubes with covered bottoms are available for very small children; you can also rent a tether to attach your child's tube to yours.

  • Very nice tubing experience. I had to knock it down a star, because (1) they don't offer a military discount, but if we had paid online then they would have discounted $2 each person; and (2) they couldn't find the waivers we all submitted online, so we had to do them again in person. It seemed the staff in the office weren't trained well enough on the booking procedure. Otherwise, it was fun tubing down the river, and the fact that one can go down the river all day long does make it very enjoyable.
  • No doubt the river is really nice and hence not giving extra stars for the river and its surrounding beauty to the rafting company. As far as the Raft company is concerned... This is not the company to go for for a real adventure. We had a 'not so great experience'. And when complained (needed to send them a few email) their response was even more disappointing as if we were at fault and in addition they politely offered us to come have raft again! ha I will drive down 11 hours so that they can correct their mistake. Anyways it clearly showed how they just shoved off the concern we raised. They were friendly but we needed adventure which was very sub par.
  • This is the longer of River Rats 2 water tubbing experiences. We vacationed in the Smokey's for a week and we bought River Rats package with water rafting (which was amazing!) and unlimited tubbing. We went tubbing 5 times between their 2 locations. It's a fun experience for everyone! Water levels were different on the couple days we were there. Higher water left a fast and more fun experience... but that's on nature, not the company. The employees were super friendly and helpful. You want a fun experience, go with this company!
  • It's one of the best time we've ever had, Wayne was very kind and a great Host , Our guide Richard is a great guy to be with, He knows the waters like a back of his hand and so this is Richard's backyard.... Three cheers to you guys... Thank you
  • Great place to Haveing self or family fun or to have some time to relax while seeing new things. The staff are friendly and helpful.
