For tubing in the Smoky Mountains you and your friends should go try out the River Rat. They have tubing, kayaking and rafting everyone in your family can enjoy. It’s a day full of fun where you and your travel companions will make many memories together. You have many options of packages to choose from. Don’t just limit yourself to one thing there’s so much that can be done.
If you just want to tube all day then its $13. However the price is cheaper for groups. This total includes the tube rental, tax, unlimited shuttle service and a life jacket. If you ever wanted to try to kayak then don’t miss your chance while you’re vacationing in Pigeon Forge. The price for kayaking is $15 for the first trip and $5 for every additional time after that. The folks at River Rat want to save you some money as well. If you want to whitewater raft and tube you could save $8 dollars and by the combo pack for $39.95 or save $13 and book a whitewater rafting trip and receive free tubing pass.
Once you decide which package is best for you and your friends you will load up in the River Rat shuttle and will be taken one mile up the river to tube or kayak back down to the River Rat store. If you choose to float down the river you’ll be looking at about an hour of floating so be sure you wear your sunscreen and water shoes. You’ll make plenty of memories and share a lot of laughs on this adventure with River Rat.
River Rat has been open since 1995 and their visitors go back to them each time they are in the Smokies. Next time you’re in town you should go out and visit them too. Maybe you’ll find this place to become a tradition for you and your family that everyone will look forward to when they come to Pigeon Forge every year!
