We coordinate an annual camp for 120+ military teens. While en route to raft the Ocoee River with another company, we were notified that the TVA closed the Ocoee due to unsafe water conditions. We called Rolling Thunder to see if we could tube in McCaysville. Rolling Thunder offered to take our large group rafting on the Nantahala instead. Rolling... More

I am a Grandmother who took her Grandchildren for a tubing adventure on the Toccoa river in McCaysville, Ga. I do not know who had more fun, me or the Grandchildren. We did the 3 hour trip, the price was great, only $12.00 each. The scenery was beautiful. We all loved the fact that we got to see bridges. The... More

My husband and I together with our 17 year old son, 14 year old daughter, and her friend did the DoubleTrouble with lunch. It was an awesome experience and I highly recommend!

Awesome first time experience. Stiles was our guide. He did a great job directing us through. We went with a wild ride and didn't lose any riders. One got knocked out briefly but it was bc we rescued someone from another boat and he knocked our guy out. We are already talking about an annual trip. I was extremely nervous... More

We did a group trip with Rolling Thunder Rafting! It was a blast!! Lauren was our guide for the trip. We did the Upper River trip with the Olympic rapids and had a great time. Ask for Lauren! :)

With out a doubt the greatest White Water Rafting experience I've ever had. All of the workers are great and very helpful and know how to treat their customers with respect and make them feel at home. Our tour guide Will was awesome and really helped make the experience. 10/10 will definitely be going back for some more rafting!

Had a great time with my 9 year old daughter today thanks to Rolling Thunder! (Go for the guide assisted, don't wimp out) She said it was the best time ever. The guides were great. We were safe, but not hovered over - just how it should be. Book now!
