Tubing & Water Park Overview

At Helen Tubing & Water Park, you’ve got plenty of options for how to spend your day on a budget you can afford. For those who are running a bit short on time, you might want to just go with a single tubing pass for just $3. The cost of admission gets you a tube, a life vest, a shuttle ride, and the tubing adventure of your choice. You can pick from the short run, which will take about 1 – 1.5 hours to complete, or the long run which takes about 2 – 3 hours. If you and your family really love tubing and have the time, you might consider picking up an all day tubing pass for $8. The best value is to purchase admission to the water park for $15 which will provide you with access to all of the park’s attractions, as well as tubing on the ‘Hooch. Free shuttles pick up visitors at the water park every 15 minutes, so when you’re done enjoying the water slides, you can head out to the river for a spell.

Planning Ahead

Whenever you’re planning on spending a day in the sun and water, it’s important to take the time to make sure that everyone in your group is protected with a waterproof sunscreen for safety. If you’re coming to the water park with kids who aren’t potty trained, you’ll need to show the park that the little one is equipped with a “swimmie” diaper that’s specifically designed for the water and a waterproof plastic cover for the diaper. Both of these items can be purchased in the water park’s store once you arrive. Be advised that dogs are not allowed in the water park, so if you’re traveling with your pooch, you’ll need to arrange to have him stay behind at the cabin or send him to doggy daycare. Water shoes aren’t required, but are recommended to protect feet in the river, and as the concrete around the pool can get hot during the day.
