Additional Details

Join us on the the Boomerang Party Bus and let's go tubing down the Shenandoah River in Front Royal! These trips are truly for the fun & energetic crowd who would enjoy an adventurous day out of the city, in the sunshine, and on the river! Don't let the summer pass you by! Grab some friends or meet some on board & get ready for one of the most memorable days this summer!

Total trip: Approximately 8 to 9 hours (including 3 hours on the party bus and 4 hours on the river).

Capacity: 38 Players ... we'll be joining 2 other SOLD OUT buses.

* Roundtrip party bus transportation with U shaped seating, dancing poles, surround sound, and hardwood floors!
* The chance to meet lots of new people on board & on the river!
* Cooling off on a hot summer's day while enjoying the thrill of the rapids
* Between 3-4 hours on the river (depending on the current water levels, and how fast you choose to tube).
* Beautiful views, wildlife, and lots of blue skies!
* Bring your own lunch in a cooler and enjoy it while you float, or pull over to enjoy it while sunning on a large rock.
* Sit back and relax, or dance on board on your way home!

Our tubing trips vary between River Riders & Butts Tubes in Harper's Ferry, WVA, and Front Royal Canoe in Front Royal, VA. The decision where to tube is based on the current river levels, requests, and tubing availability. Since we cannot predict water levels, advanced notice on where we will be tubing is not available.

    All 38 spots confirmed and paid. With regards to Jason's question, the cooler tube is just a smaller tube that you can fit a cooler on.

    The bus usually makes a pit stop at a grocery store in case anybody forgot anything.

    *is this beer cooler tube just another tube(cooler not included) ?
    *can we buy beer/ice when we get there or do we need to bring it on the bus with us?

    Currently 29 out of 38 spots paid. If you are still interested in joining, then please e-mail me at [masked] or hitting the "PAY" button.

    With regards to Bob's comment. Yes, no alcohol is technically allowed. But based off our 2009, 2010, and 2011 river trips, we've somehow managed to party while floating down the river.

    I would think so on the bus; I do not know about the procurement of the beverage itself and that information must come from the operator of the so-called party bus. But on the river proper, according to the DNR Police, it's a big no-no.

    You would have to leave beer,wine, and liquor in the car in a cooler.

    I'd love to do this trip if you ever planned it for a Sunday in the future

    There is no alcohol allowed on the river, so the beer tube may not be a good idea......
