“Me and my family and friends have been going here for the past five years or so as sort of a tradition and compared to some of the other tubing places I’ve been to these guys are my favorite” states Chris from Evart via Yelp. “The staff is friendly, the trip seems to take just the right amount of time, and the Muskegon river is really nice and deep.”

According to Wikipedia, “Tubing (also known as inner tubing, “bumper tubing” or even toobing) is a recreational activity where an individual rides on top of an inner tube, either on water, snow, or through the air. The tubes themselves are also known as “donuts” or “biscuits” due to their shape.”
