Helen Things to Do: 64 reviews and 131 photos

I rarely write reviews, but this memorial day horrible experience in tubing in the
river made me to write this. I suggest not go with kids under 10, water level is
very low there are so many rocs, it is very skiddy and dangerous for tubing.
so many changes of hitting rocks. it is shame on law enforcement officials of helen
allowing tubing companies to operate freely for few bucks of economy, i know there is
waiver agreement but it doesn't matter, allowing tube renting for kids under 10 is
dangerous, they know the situation, but people who come from out of town do not know
the intencity of danger unless you try it. As they said kids can go so i thought water level is
good and it won't be tough ride. it is not scary ride it is dangarous ride.
any type of scary thing is ok, but danagerous nature of water flow towards the rocks
is not fun for my kids, no help available, no proper exists for people who do not
like, no proper warning sign boards before entering the river with the tube.

i am just talking about my situation, just trying to share my experience.
