Satan's Kingdom

Satan's Kingdom is the place on the Farmington River in New Hartford where people rent tubes and go into the river.  A bus picks them up a mile downriver and brings them back to Satan's Kingdom.

That looks refreshing as all get out. That'll cool you off.

In fact it's not "my kind of sport", and I don't know how to swim! LOL
But I'm sure Cezar would love to try it!Looks very funny and your pictures are great!

There is a place like this in Arizona that people go to all summer long. It's something I've never done. These people appear to have a great time.

There are places in Costa Rica for this, as well as just East of Phoenix/Scottsdale. It is fun.

I loved to do things like this when I was younger, too, and after looking at your photos, I want to do it again, but I'm not sure my kids would let me off the leash! Hope your week is off to a good start, Jack! Enjoy!

Mama Zen said...

That looks awesome!

I love these scenes! Years ago when our kids were small, our entire neighborhood would float down the Apple River in Wisconsin with families and sometimes with just adults. Fun!!

I think I would give it a try... Funny there should be a bus service!

Lowell said...

Is this where they had the big tubing brawl recently?

Great fun. Were you out there with your camera on one of the tubes?

VP said...

It looks more like the kingdom of Neptune, but I would like to give it a try anyway!

Dianne said...

Wow! This looks like fun Jack .... I'm sure the scenery on the way down would be gorgeous.

Randy said...

That would make for a fun time.

It sounds like a lot of fun! Strange name though. :)

Satan must be very gentle in New England. Daniel Webster was able to defeat him.

Scary sounding place, lively looking shots ;-)

I've done this in Mexico in some ancient Mayan canals among the mangroves. The difference is the water was very calm so I moved quite slowly towards the Caribbean Sea, giving me time to watch all the fauna there in and out of the water. It was fantastic!

SRQ said...

Wow -- that looks like fun! Nice pics, Jack. I'll pose the question everyone is wondering: Did you bubble wrap your camera, don a lifejacket and go tubing???

EG CameraGirl said...

I bet the name makes it seem all the more appealing. :)
