We had a great time!

Other than the cranky shuttle driver, we had a great time and found the location to be very convenient. We did a tube float one day and kayaks another. Fun time with the kids!

This was my 4th time going white water rafting, and Ocoee River has by far been the best! We did the full day experience, and it was really nice getting a break for lunch (which was really good) off of the river, and then continuing to the rapids. There was a short break in the rapids where the river was... More

Gigi, glad to hear you and the family had a great time even though it sounds like our shuttle driver was not on his A game that particular day. Please accept my apologies for his lack of enthusiasm. It is rare for us to have that happen but we're not perfect though we keep trying. Hope to see you again. More

Our younger teens (13 and 14) and family friends had a blast. The guide was excellent, well informed, and took good care of us. Our youngest was nervous, but loved every minute of it. We came away with smiles and memories. Thanks Will for making our trip awesome!

I went with 12 other friends, and the first time for most of us White Water Rafting. Principal Joe was our guide, and he had an awesome personality and very experienced. I was the one that was most nervous, while the rest of the group wanted 'wild and exciting' and he made me feel very comfortable. He told me where... More

It was our first time white water rafting, and we did the whole run. Coach hit many highlights that none if the other guides do. We "surfed" at least 4 times, and near the end of one rapid circled in an eddy (right above a drop) until the rest of our group passed through. He was very clear on safety... More

My husband and I with our two girls 13 and 16 did the middle Ocoee. I was a little worried with my girls but Travis did a great job. He was very knowledgable about the river and how to handle all the rapids. He had us practice our strokes and commands a good bit in the start to make sure... More

The trip down the Lower Ocoee with Rolling Thunder was my first experience white water rafting. I had such a great time that I'm already planning a return trip! All of the staff at Rolling Thunder were very friendly and focused on not only your enjoyment of the trip but also your safety. Our guide, Osprey, was great! When he... More
