This Map shows the City Limits of New Braunfels
(the pink area) where the New River Rules and Restrictions apply.
This Map shows where disposable containers are banned in New Braunfels, it also shows where the New Braunfels
"Can Ban" is in effect. The "pink area" on the map below indicates the City Limits of New Braunfels where the
"Can Ban" and "Disposable Container Ban" are in effect, restrictions on Cooler Size & Music Volume are also in effect.
As noted on the Map above: None of the New Braunfels recently passed " River Rules & Laws" apply outside the New Braunfels
City Limits. This means starting immediately above the "Gruene Bridge" and going up-river towards Canyon Lake
on the Guadalupe River, you will not be subject to fines and scrutiny under the New River Rules and Laws recently passed
by the City of New Braunfels. Essentially, you will be in the "Hassle Free Zone" above Gruene Bridge and all the way
up the Guadalupe River to the Tube Haus in Canyon Lake, TX!
Tube Haus is "Your
Tubing Oasis located in the Heart of the Hassle Free Zone!"
- Beverages in Cans are OK at Tube Haus
- Disposable Containers are OK at Tube Haus
- Any Size Coolers are OK at Tube Haus
- Music On River is OK at Tube Haus
- Alcohol On River is OK at Tube Haus, the best place to "drink and float the river on a tube"
See A Full Comparison List of River Rules and Laws between the "Danger Zone" and the "Hassle Free Zone"
It's about 12 to 13 miles between the
"Danger Zone" (All Of New Braunfels City Limits, the area shaded in
Pink on the Map above),
and the "Hassle Free Zone" known as Tube Haus (at the top of the Map) in Canyon Lake, Texas.
Everything within the New Braunfels City Limits / Boundaries is being referred to as the "Danger Zone" because
the local rivers within the city limits are laced with Law Enforcement Agents ready to ticket all unsuspecting tourists
and visitors who have no clue about the long list of restrictions placed on their freedoms when they try their hand at River Tubing
and Water Activities on either the Guadalupe River or Comal River within the City Limits of New Braunfels.
Some cities and towns around the country generate additional revenues with "Speed Traps", but the City Of New Braunfels
has come up with a new twist to generate funds for the City Coffers. Hefty Fines await unsuspecting families when
they unknowingly bring sandwiches packed in a plastic zip lock baggies, or candy bars and their wrappers or a
simple can of Coca Cola or Pepsi. If your music can be heard from more than 50 ft (how do they measure this exactly???),
you'll be hit with a hefty fine... if you grabbed the standard 28 quart cooler from the garage and packed up some great
snacks and sodas for the Family, then you will be found as a criminal in New Braunfels if you show up at any River
within the City Limits and forking over your hard earned cash to the Local Judge or City Clerk, because only 16 quart coolers
or smaller are allowed on the rivers (what Out-of-Towner knows this stuff???)
Oh well, too bad, too sad, the law is the law, no matter if it's wrong or being used for the wrong purposes.
If you have read this nugget of Free Speech, it's been posted by The Original Tube Haus (Since 1978), then you have been forewarned
of the Danger Zone that lurks within the City Limits Of New Braunfels. New Braunfels used to be one of
the finest and fairest cities in Texas, but somehow the loonies finagled their way into positions
of power and greed... and so goes the same old story of corruption and poor judgment across our land.
The legal costs of Lawsuits, negative publicity in the media, combined with the horrible experiences
tourists are having when ticketed and fined, and lost revenues from a downturn in tourism
is costing the City of New Braunfels way more than what they were paying out to clean up trash
on the river and maintain the stellar reputation they once had. Read the lawsuit update by clicking
on the link below... it seems that someone has passed the "Cool-aid" around and infected the local population
as the update article is stating the Locals support the Disposable Container Ban and the other
absurd restrictions recently passed by the City Council. I'm scratching my head and wondering...?
