We had alot of fun but it was exhausting, the full day includes biking, hiking and rafting. The biking portion is the most exhausting, not because it's 25 miles but because the bike seats are not comfortable, after the first 10 miles the seat started to become extremely painful to sit on. I would highly recommend a seat cushion. Besides... More

Excellent guides- on/off the river. Limited/small rapids but it was expected in the 'family style' rafting;for folks wanting more action, go with the 'dam' release tour. The lunch break was good as well. There's a bit of driving(20 min school bus ride each way) down to Jim Thorpe and back up to the main office but all are described in... More

I went with my 12 yo son about 2 weeks ago for a dam release. whole experience form start to finish was fantastic. guides were great. felt safe and supported by staff the whole time. The water level was a little low but certainly not their fault. I definitely recommend renting or bringing water guns to supplement the buckets in... More

We rode the dam release trip which took about 4.5 hours on the water. Plenty of rapids to keep it exciting throughout the entire trip. Would recommend even without much experience.

We just spent to day on the family rafting trip. We are a multi-generational group ranging in age from 6 to 80. Our guides did a great job of taking care of us. The 9 to 45 year olds were involved in splashing, but Yoo (our tour leader) warned that no one should splash my 80 old father-in-law (he has... More

We took our kids ranging in ages 6-15. It was a great trip for all. Expect to wait a bit for late arrivals to check in, but once you are on your way, it is worth it. There are a few rushing rapids, but a smooth ride. Be prepared to paddle in many dead spots. It is a lot like... More

My family and I have been wanting to go white water rafting for some years. While in Jim Thorpe we finally did so. What a wonderful family experience!!!! We booked the Family White Water rafting. The cost per person is certainly worth it as the admission also gave us an all you can eat luncheon. Also, we each were given... More

We went there on a chill Sept morning. we were the first batch of people to be ushered into one of the many rafts. The good thing here (or bad, depends on how you see it) is that there is no guide on your raft, The guides come on their own kayaks. There were about 20 rafts on t he... More
