City Tube Chute on the Comal River


The City Tube Chute is a water slide carved into the side of the City’s dam on the Comal River. It diverts tubers around the dam as they float the river. It is an exhilarating ride that attracts tubers from all around the area and is the longest of its kind in the world. The City Tube Chute facility features tube rentals and personal flotation devices.

In order to protect the beauty of our rivers so future generations can have just as much fun on them as you do, we've created rules meant to protect you AND this area's rivers. Please visit to review river rules while tubing on the Comal or Guadalupe Rivers in New Braunfels. Let's all enjoy the river in a fun and responsible manner!

City Tube Chute Rules

  • No alcohol on City property
  • Hanging on the Tube Chute wall is not permitted
  • No canoes, kayaks or any other objects that may be rendered unsafe are allowed through the chute
  • No jumping or diving
  • No Styrofoam or glass is allowed
  • No tubes larger than 60 inches wide will be allowed through the chute


Due to the strong current in and around the chute, it is recommended that weak swimmers wear lifejackets to help keep them safe. Shoes are also recommended as rocks and broken glass in the river can easily cut bare feet.
