Visit Helen Tubing & Waterpark this summer for the ultimate lazy river experience

Helen Tubing & Waterpark is this summer’s hotspot

When the world seems to be moving too quickly, you can slow down on a river. Georgia has lots of places where you can put a tube in the water and just float your cares away. Rental fees often include the tube, life vest and a shuttle ride to the river. Some locations even rent tubes with coolers, so you can bring food and drinks. Tubing can be enjoyable for the entire family, as long as children meet height and age requirements.

Helen Tubing & Waterpark is offering the ultimate Georgia lazy river experience this summer. Open seven days a week from Memorial Day, May 29, through Labor Day, Sept. 4, patrons can float down the iconic Chattahoochee River for a fun, leisurely trip that lasts for up to 150 minutes.

After a fun day of tubing, visitors can stop by the full service restaurant and bar conveniently located at the end of the river trip. From there, eaters can watch fellow tubers float on by while they enjoy a meal and some drinks. The real fun, of course, is on the water.

Weather permitting, tubing begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. each day. A shuttle is available to take visitors up river so they can joint the join. Ticket prices range in a variety of prices and offers. For $14 on weekdays, visitors can get the standard tubing experience. On weekends, the ticket price increases to $18. That offer, however, comes without the more comfortable tube option.

For $18 on weekdays and $20 on the weekends, tubers can get a tube that comes with both a headrest and a bottom portion. Each ticket is for a single trip, which begins at 9917 Highway 75 North and ends at 685 Edelweiss Street.

Helen Tubing & Waterpark offers free parking, restrooms, changing rooms, picnic tables, lockers, a gift shop, pavilion and Wild Hog BBQ.

The lazy river, however, is just one half of the experience. Open seven days a week, starting on Memorial Day, visitors can also experience the local waterpark. Tickets range from $12.99 for weekday visitors under 42 inches to $24.99 for weekend visitors above 42 inches. The park is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and includes water slides, a playground and more.
