We paid for a 2 hour tubing session. The facility is not well organized. First, the facility did not have enough tubes for everyone. We had to wait at the bottom for people who finished their runs to give up their tubes so we could get tubes. Then, after we got up to the top of the runs, we waited 20-30 minutes (this is not a typo!) before it was our turn to go down. The lines were really really long. People were going down one at a time. Once someone went down the run, they would slide partly back up the run with their tube and then have to walk all the way back to the bottom of the run before they could exit. It took a while for the run to clear and no one could go until the run was clear. It is not efficiently designed. In the first hour, we went down twice and stood in line freezing the rest of the time. This was not fun. Perhaps Horseshoe could think of a better, more efficient way to organize this activity so that the lines could move faster and more time could be spent actually tubing. One suggestion is to have most of the runs designated as minimum of 4 riders so that groups could go down quicker and allow singles on only or two runs. Regardless, it was not worth the money. The runs are short, the lines are long and there must be better things that I could do with my time.
