This experience is well planned out. There are several levels of white water depending on the route. Water flow is controlled by a timed release at the dam.

We had a fantastic time on the challenge trip and the zip line course. Rafting was very exciting and our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful the whole trip. We got launched off at cutbait rapid but our guide had explained the rapid and prepared us so we knew what to do. The zip line course was great also and the guides were great also. Our trip was amazing and we appreciate all the staff for the fun, safe, and friendly experience. Would recommend to everyone up for an adventure!
Guides were nice and knowledgeable. The basic package is perfect for beginners it was very easy to get through. The river is fun but didn’t offer any BIG rapids. it was definitely still enjoyable or guide Jackson was great!
So much fun! Our guide was Jackson, He was very Informative, fun, and calm. As parents it was really nice to just take a few quiet moments as we floated down the river, but then when I came to the Rapids Jackson knew that we also loved a good adrenaline rush; and he specifically helped guide us so that we could get the most fun out of the experience. He was also very informative on the history of the river and the buildings nearby, and it was so cool to learn all of that; such as the impact of the damns, the man made creation of the river, Pemberton and Coca-cola, and more fun facts that just made the experience that much more worth it. Will be back soon!
Loved the experience, the staff expertise and professionalism, and the variety of offers available. The gift shop has everything you need to prepare for your outing including lockers, bathroom, shoes, and much more. When you return you may want a souvenir or something. The staff is great here!
We had a great experience! The river was pretty flat & calm, but the rapids were a great rush with big waves. We were very much beginners, but felt comfortable and safe with our guide. Highly recommend our guide, Smiley. If it’s a beautiful day, be prepared to wait. Appx 60 people were on our 3pm time slot, so we spent at least an an hour for everyone prepping, waiting, lining up, etc. then another hour and a half on the ride itself. Definitely recommend to anyone who doesn’t mind waiting to get wet.
