We arrived at the South location full of excitement and were impressed by the cadence with which we were checked in, paid and whisked away to the take-off location. As a solo mom with a young child, I was assured that the river was slow...More

Zen tubing in Asheville, NC, is an awesome experience. Great fun for families . No wild rapids, no waterfalls... Just a relaxing ride. You can connect your tubes so you don't get separated, get a tube for your cooler and go!!!
