Towable tubes can be a good way to remember the simpler things in life. If you have ever spent time at a lake, we are pretty sure that you have either seen someone using one or may have been that person on one. The best and worse thing about towable tubes is that they offer a thrilling ride. On the other hand, it can give you that same dip in your stomach that you would experience on a roller coaster, and that means you want to be careful. In other words, no amateur stunts and please wear a life jacket. We know that it may seem like harmless fun but it is pretty easy to become disoriented if you get thrown from your tube. So always remember safety first.
