Cool River Tubing Helen
Where are we going today?
Ready for an adventure? Great! Just head to Cool River Tubing, and you will embark on a pretty awesome adventure out in nature....and on tubes!
Tubing is such a fun experience, and it's one you can enjoy with the whole family. Cool River Tubing have made it easy to arrange, and you get to spend a day out on the Chattahoochee River in the beautiful Georgia nature. How cool does that sound!
Cool River Tubing offer tube rental as part of a one trip package, or you can rent the tube for the entire day. Not only that, but there is a pretty awesome waterslide that you can enjoy too - and they have combo packages for the lot!
The single trip package consists of either a one hour, or a two hour trip. The longer ride can take up to 2.5 hours. They also know that different people need different tubes, which is why they have tubes with and without bottoms. For those little ones under 12 years, they have tubes fitted with bottoms, so they can be safe and secure as they head down the river!
The Chattahoochee Outpost address is listed on this website, and that is where all of those very cool tubers get out at the end of the river. Here, you can park, and get your tickets, before taking a bus to the starting point.
This way, you'll always end up with your car.
The outpost is a great place to spend some time too. There are picnic tables if you want to bring your own lunch and enjoy a full day. There are also concession stands, and a gift shop to pick up those extra items!
Get out in the outdoors, and enjoy the Georgia sun next family day out. It's a TUBLUAR idea!

If you have over 10 people there is a group rate, so why not bring the students down for a celebration!.

Why not bring a picnic! There are picnic tables available on a first come basis, so just enjoy the sun!.
Any Top Tips?
If you have a dog, why not bring it along! They allow dogs in the tubes :).
Doing our bit
The waterslides have a lifeguard on duty.
Need a little extra help?
You don't need to be physically fit, but if there isn't enough rain, it might be harder to paddle. You need upper body strength.
Can I get one of those?
There is a gift shop where you can pick up some great souvenirs as a reminder of your day!.
The minimum age is 3 years to tube. They don't have weight or weight restrictions.

This place had the laid back atmosphere we were looking for! The prices are great and you can have a nice long ride down the river, with bus service to take you back. We went right after a good rain so the rocks were not a problem. We also ziplined, definitely fun and a good deal, I wish the ziplines were through tree canopies though.
