Apple River Tanking

Check out the ultimate river experience you've never seen!

We're always looking for the next best experience to offer our customers. We introduce to you tanking - the newest outdoor river activity within hundreds of miles of the Twin Cities. Only at River's Edge can you enjoy what everyone has been talking about!

What is Tanking?

Tanking is floating down a river in a cattle tank, a vessel typically used to supply drinking water to livestock or horses. We modified the tank to allow seating for up to 6 adults, giving you the opportunity to float the river and enjoy the outdoor scenic beauty like never before. The best part is you are generally removed from the water, minimizing how much you get wet. This allows people to enjoy tanking during times of year when it's too cold to tube or waterslide.

What's Included?

  • With every tank rental, we provide 2 paddles, life jackets (adult sized) for all riders, and a shuttle to and from the river entry/exit points. 

Tanking is Family Friendly

"An adventure for all ages!"

We want tanking to be something that everyone can enjoy. Many of our customers have been asking us to offer something new and for all ages.

In an effort to focus on that welcoming experience, please see the below rules of tanking at River's Edge:

- We ask that there be at least one legal adult in the tank at all times
