You'll get several runs down the course. Sessions start with an adventurous first run designed to get you used to the feel of the boat and working as a team. We progressively up the fear factor each time and by your final run you’ll be surfing, high siding, spinning and nose dunking with the very best! « less

Great few hours out whether participating or just relaxing with a nice drink and spectating. Easy to get to on a well served bus route.

Having received the experience as a gift for Christmas I was joined by two other family members for the White Water Rafting experience at Lee Valley. After a less than pleasant experience in the cafe with untrained staff and little knowledge we were relived with the expertise and fun-loving ethos of the raft guides. From the safety briefing to flipping... More

A fantastic experience, even in the rain! Definitely an adrenalin fuelled activity, it was great fun from start to finish. Thank you to Richard, our excellent instructor. Amazing to experience white water rafting at an Olympic venue and so good to see avenue still in constant use. Great fun for all the family, but you need to be a bit... More

I booked hydrospeeding for my partner and I to do on my birthday. We arrived early so we could watch the other activities going on. The place is fairly small but has so many things to watch. You can wander around the facility and get really close to the action. This is also really good if you are going with... More

My family booked this experience for me for my 50th Birthday and it was excellent! It was a thoroughly enjoyable 2 hours, which went far too quickly, I didnt want it to end. We undertook a thorough assessment and safety instruction and then had several circuits of the rapids, each one becoming more exciting than the last.We were taught how... More

We attended the Canoe Slalom World Cup 1 as our kids compete in Canoe Slalom. We had a fantastic day, very well organised, everywhere was very clean and well maintained. Cafe was reasonably priced for food and drinks, and the event was brilliant! Will be back for World Championships in 2015!

What a terrific 2+ hours spent at the White water centre - rafting. A great build up - safety briefing and training, simple paddling and drill, and the adrenalin builds as we had several circuits of the rapids. Always felt safe with our guide Paul even when we all capsized as we knew the drill and there were lots of... More

What a day! I visited the Lee Valley white water rafting centre in August 2014. From the start it was a well organised fun, exciting and safe day out in what was one of the Olympic 2012 venues. The day stared with a caffeine kick from a lovely coffee latte in the cafe. ( well priced).Then we were issued wet... More
