This was my second time rafting and it was so much fun! I was little scared because I fell in on my first rafting trip but our guide Cat made me feel super comfortable and made sure I didn't fall in this time!

Went for the first weekend of the season through middle ocoee section and it was brilliant. Our guide, Gabe was superb making the trip very enjoyable. Rolling Thunder is simply a bunch of very nice people. Their facilities are customer friendly and clean. Definitely looking to go back in the summer and try out the upper ocoee section.

Our son and three of his buddies went rafting on the river today (first day of the season). They had a blast! Their guide was Vince and you could tell he enjoyed taking four eighteen year old guys down the river. The staff was very helpful and pleasant right from the time we checked in until the end of the... More

The first day of the new season is so exciting for us after a long, dreary winter. We're so glad you decided to spend it on the river with us. Vince is an extraordinary guide as well as an all around great guy. Thank you for taking the time to post a great review. We appreciate you. Hope to see... More

Some friends and I went rafting to celebrate my friend Sean's 30th birthday and we all had an incredible time. We actually stayed in Bryson City and drove over just to raft with Rolling Thunder. Our guide, James, was easily one of the better river guides I've had. He was a freaking blast! We will definitely visit again.

Went on the Middle Ocoee about a week ago. It was absolutely amazing. The staff was great, funny, and made sure we had a great time. They also went over all safety before taking on the river and ensured that everyone had proper equipment. Our guide Sosebee was the absolute best, hands down. I highly suggest you request him to...

Been rafting once before in a different natural river where there was just 2 rafts on a 6 hour trip and did not see another party all day but did have to walk over a small parts of the course due to low water level where the river went very wide. This river has a controlled release from a reservoir... More
