I have lived in Charlotte for a little under two years and I can not say enough good things about the WWC. There are so many activities offered ( rafting, paddleboarding, kayaking, ropes course, zip lines, rock climbing, mountain biking, obstacle courses etc.). In addition to the paid activities you can also come out to run or bike the trails... More

Visited the Whitewater Center on Sat Aug 23rd. Made online reservations to raft at 1pm and 3pm. Showed at 12:45pm and our name was not on the role call. They were very busy and this was a major issue as their system showed our 1pm reservation was actually three days earier in the week! However I did have a confirmed... More

What a riot! We were treated to this park while visiting a relative. Three in our raft flew into the rapids for extra fun by our awesome leader. Would love to do this again!

You can waste a day riding rides, or you can spend the day being part of the adventure. We took our Boy Scout Troop, and everyone from the youngest Scout to the oldest leader found something to enjoy. Our biggest highlight was the whitewater rafting, but we also did the zip lines, mountain bikes, obstacle course, and the flatwater paddleboarding... More

My pre-teen and his friend did the Wet & Wild summer camp last month and LOVED it! They got to do white water rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, bouldering, rock climbing and zip lining. They were all smiles the whole week. The counselors were awesome! The drop off and pick up routine was a very organized and pick up required photo... More

As senior travelers, we enjoyed walking around the premises watching the rock climbers, whitewater kayakers and rafters, zip liners, and more. Even the restaurant served up a pretty delicious lunch with excellent views of the outside activities.

I have been going to the Whitewater Center for years and it seems to keep getting better each year. I am not one of those that goes out there to do a lot of the activities. I enjoy taking the dog and walking around, watching people on the rafts, and eating at the restaurant having a glass of wine. If... More

This was a terrific experience. There are a variety of activities to do for all ages. While some of us rafted, others of us kayaked. We also climbed rock walls and did zip lines and rope courses. The staff is very knowledgable, helpful, and encouraging. Their love of the activities they monitor is very clear. I would suggest bringing water... More
