Rediscover your sense of adventure with the family and all go tubing in Northampton on a specially created white water course. Challenge one another to stay afloat in your inflatable rings as you are washed down the course trying to avoid the various obstacles such as whirlpools and eddy's. The UK's white water rafting course grades Northampton course 2 - 3, making it great fun and ensuring everybody is safe. Come and experience this stimulating rafting course for yourselves and enjoy an exciting, breathtaking day out together.
This experience is available from March to October on selected Saturdays.
For two adults (18 or over) and two children (8 - 17). Max weight 16 stone. No experience necessary but you must be able to swim. Any medical conditions must be declared before booking and venue may test fitness.
Tubing will go ahead in most conditions. For your safety, certain conditions may lead to postponement - you MUST call the venue for a weather check. For morning bookings call the day before, for afternoon/evening bookings call before setting out.
Sessions last around two hours from initial introduction to debrief, including at least five runs down the course. Please arrive a few minutes early to register and allow for time afterwards to shower and change. Sorry, latecomers can't be accommodated.
