A great activity for the whole family (as long as the young ones are 8 or older) or a fun day trip for the grown ups! If you grew up here in Arizona, you’re likely familiar with Salt River tubing. Spend 2, 3 or even 5 hours floating down the cool Salt River. A quick bus ride to the start point after renting your tubes starts the adventure. Get off at any of the three exit points. Bring plenty of sunscreen, water shoes, an old sheet to keep your tube cool, a cooler full of lot’s of water, and lots of snacks!

Experience a multi-sensory, walk-through cinematic gallery created with cutting-edge Sensory4 Technology experience. The exhibit traces millions of years of evolution and that culminates with the impressive great white shark. View shark models cast from real great whites along with a collection of real shark jaws and teeth and ancient, rare fossils.
