River guides outfit each participant with a tube and life jacket before shuttling them to the Upper Hudson River, where they take in scenic views of the Adirondacks and float on water 2 to 3 feet deep that boasts an average temperature of 72 degrees. Trips depart at 1 p.m. throughout Memorial Day weekend and on weekends in June.
Guests can also make selections from the Tubby Tubes snack bar, including cheeseburgers ($3.50), soft pretzels ($3), and grilled-chicken sandwiches ($4).
A tow system pulls an inner tube and its passenger to the top of a slide, from which the inflated vessel speeds down the hillside, twists through trees, and plunges into adrenaline-pumping drops. These thrills and the occasional daredevil squirrel emerge from Tubby Tubes' nine winter tubing runs, where attendants push tubers down powdery slopes that double as express lanes for snowmen on their morning commutes.
As the weather warms, the park shifts its focus to its four downhill tubing slides. To add more excitement, the company's crew revamped the colorful slides with snow-like surfaces that create increased speeds. This spirit for adventure echoes at nearby Lower Hudson Gorge, where Tubby Tubes' rafts and tubes explore the flat waters and tree-lined banks.
