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.

My friends and I (6 total) were pleasantly surprised when a friend suggested that we go to ASCI to white water raft on their elaborate man-made course. None of us had been there but saw it before by The Wisp. Once we all got into our wet suits and got the rest of our protective equipment, which was all in... More

I took a group of friends there for a weekend, did the rafting, the duckies twice, and the bodysurfing. We were exhausted but what an awesome trip!

Would definitely recommend. I went with my boyfriend and my two sons (12 and 14). My 12 year old was very nervous and our boat guide was great in getting him to warm up to the experience. It was so exciting but yet you felt safe b/c it was a controlled course. We left with a lifetime of memories, and... More

Good place to go just to see what's it all about, or to get into a raft and have a fun time in the whitewater. Our guide Ben was lots of fun, our group had a great time.

Four teenagers in our group of two families did the white water rafting earlier this week. Their ages were 14 to almost 17. They really enjoyed it and for two of them, it was a totally new adventure. They said their guide was really good. However, for the price, it was expensive. We went on a Monday and it was... More
