We wanted a relaxing afternoon so we decided to go tubing down instead of rafting. I love rolling thunder because they take you to the put in and you finish at their building where you parked instead of having to wait on them to come pick you up when you're finished like most places do. Staff was friendly, they got... More

After checking out other white water outfitters in the area we chose Rolling Thunder and we couldn't have been more pleased! We chose the Upper Ocoee section, the perfect blend of gentle shoals, flat water and class IVs. Our family had rafted at Yellowstone and our 19 year old son has experienced the New River, and we all enjoyed the... More

My boyfriend and I are city slickers to the fullest, but summer is drawing to a close and I wanted to surprise him with some adventure. I searched "white water rafting in Georgia," and several outfitters came up. I'm so glad I went with Rolling Thunder River! On the GA-TN border, it's surprisingly easy to get to from Atlanta. The...

Great fun for everyone. Beautiful scenery. Lots of excitement, but our guide, Dave (Osprey) made it seem easy. We swam in a smooth area. Guides all have great personalities with plenty of humor. They make so interesting. You can feel confident in their care.

We wanted to spend a day with our kids OUTSIDE before school started, so this was a last minute google search for something fun to do. Boy--- were we pleased to land on Rolling Thunder for White Water rafting. I strongly recommend it. Well-organized and with experienced guides. I am not sure if you can request a specific one, but...

Great place for white water rafting if you are in the Blue Ridge, GA area. The staff is friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed ourselves and a plus is the mini tour you get on the to the river.

We drove over from Hilton Head on a recommendation. Well worth every penny. Our guide David Wood guided the raft perfectly. If you want to try white water rafting, this is the place to go. Well run operation.
