GREAT BUT DON'T THINK IT'S PERFECTLY SAFE

My first whitewater ride was in a 6 person raft with only my goup-6 adults. We all agreed to paddle hard and make it around as many times as we could. It was work but great, a... read more

So much fun - can't wait to do this again! I was a bit skeptical of whether or not it was too much adventure for me, but I am so glad I did this. Our guide, Alex, was fantastic and patient with everyone. We had six people plus our guide in our raft. Alex successfully coached us thru the course... More

The ASCI whitewater rafting was amazingly on top of Wisp mountain. You start with a 10-15 minute training to learn the safety rules and get your pfd and helmet. The best part was when you got to swim in the rapids. I would recommend being at least 10 because it does get tiring by the fifth time around paddling the... More

On a girls trip, we experienced the ASCI Whitewater rafting on top of WISP Mountain in McHenry, MD. We chose the lowest level of on the range of difficulty and had a blast, though one of the girls fell over, we quickly retrieved her. Our guide was fun and very helpful!

Without just watching. No sieves or foot entrapment hazards. Little flat water, so you're bouncing and getting wet most of the time, with a just enough break on the conveyor back to the start.

We were a group of four in our 60's celebrating a 69th birthday. After our very enjoyable experience with Adam, an excellent guide, Adam asked if we had always been risk takers. :) There really wasn't that much of a risk - and the rafting was vigorous and highly enjoyable. This facility is a hidden gem, definitely worth going out... More

This whitewater rafting company offers thrills and squeals on man-made lake in beautiful area. Expert guides make it worry-free. Our guide, Danny, kept everyone entertained and safe as he steered through mutliple rapids, varying each trip around the well-designed course. At pointson the course anyone interested could jump into the water. Our 3-generation family emerged from the adventure wet but... More

Great for the kids (10 & 13) knowing no underwater rocks, etc. being man-made! Kristin was an outstanding guide!! Very knowledgable & patient, got us comfortable enough to "raft surf" in the whitewater eddies for the majority of the time! We had plenty of time to raft & even though a bit pricey...was well worth the cost! Kids & I... More

Great place to kayak to improve your paddling skills and safe environment to learn a new sport. Fun to paddle alone or with friends and a great bargain if you own your equipment. $20/25 a day to get an exhausting workout at ASCI May thru October. Repeat customer year after year since they opened.

If you have never seen an artificial river this is a must. It is entertaining watching how they fill it. This is a safe guided way to try whitewater rafting. Nice locker rooms and showers available.
