Eric & Heather Hamell opened Tubby Tubes in 2002 and later purchased The Lake George Guide. Tubby Tubes new owner, Jamie Johnson, says he’s excited to add water to his family of adventure-centric activities in the Lake George area which include eight adventure courses and the new “Low Rider” zipline course which opened this past April.
Customers will still see familiar faces as the two families will work together in this season of transition. Longtime Adirondack Extreme Manager Jaime DeLong will oversee both attractions and joins the Johnson Family as a Tubby Tubes River Co. minority owner.
The Hamell family plans to focus their energy on expanding advertising and marketing services offered by The Lake George Guide, and fostering the success of other Lake George Regional businesses.
Tubby Tubes will become Tubby Tubes River Co. with the unveiling of a new logo and website. The Johnson family plans to reinvest in the Lake Luzerne-based property by adding additional new and exciting adventure-based activities, a new welcome center, remodeled cafe, and expanded parking.
