Rockin’ R River Rides, (Gruene) New Braunfels

To avoid the crowds, head to New Braunfels during the week! Rockin’ R River Rides on the Guadalupe River is open for parking, and you can call an uber to shuttle you since they aren’t allowed to shuttle due to Covid restrictions! You’ll need to bring your own tubes, and you can air them up there.

One of the most popular places to tube on the Guadalupe River is off Gruene Road in New Braunfels! The cool water of the Guadalupe feels wonderful, and it’s an fun and relaxing float with several small riffles and a few rapids mixed in for a great day on the river!

Enjoy a day floating on the Guadalupe! There are great stretches of floating and some fun rapids, too!

There are plenty of places along the river where you can jump out of your tube to swim and cool off. My kids insist of swimming most of the way, which leaves me holding the tubes. I like to take a rope to tie them all together, but easy release when we are heading down the rapids.

Know Before You Go:

Water shoes are a must!

We like to take a dry bag for the things we don’t like to get wet!

Be respectful of the homes along the river, and stay out of their yards.

Bring a trash bag to help keep the river clean.

Things To Do in New Braunfels


Landa Park is a fun, public park with a miniature train ride, miniature golf, paddle boats and of course swimming on the Comal River! 

The City Tube Chute on the Comal River at Prince Solms Park is a great way to keep cool and have fun!

Schlitterbahn is just incredible!  You get two great parks for one ticket, although either park would take you an entire day to explore! Stay at the Resort to get 2 days, early and late entry to the park and lots of free activities! 


We absolutely love The Gristmill in Gruene!  


Stay in a treehouse at River Road Treehouses!
