When I was a kid, my summers were not complete until I had one or two visits to the waterpark at the beach where my family vacationed. I would hit the gates running and do all the high-action rides over and over and over until the water and sun had sapped all my energy. When I reached that point, my next stop would always be the lazy river float. What better way to recover from a crazy day than to kick back and relax as the water gently carried me along? It was also great because I could hang out with and talk to everyone around me because we were all drifting along at the same leisurely pace.
Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Well, I’ve got good news for you! You can have the same world-away experience, without all the waterpark madness and expense, right here in the Smoky Mountains! The Smoky Mountain River Rat is the float attraction in the Smoky Mountains! With two tubing adventures on the Little River, Smoky Mountain River Rat has exactly what you need to get your relax on, with just the right amount of excitement and fun mixed in!
