Our family had a great time zip lining and white water rafting. The facility was clean, neat and very friendly. Our group had Del Rio and Josh as their guides... They made our group feel safe and have a great time. After a picnic lunch (they have lots of covered tables to enjoy lunch) we went on our rafting adventure.... More

We went to this company to zip line. There zip lines go across the Pigeon River and it is amazing. This was my first time doing this and I have a terrible fear of heights. Our guides Jared and Dylan made me feel comfortable and I completed the course. They really were a lot of fun. It was a great... More

We took a Jeep Tour up Rocky Top Mountain and "Shady Grady" was our guide. What a beautiful trip it was and Grady had so much knowledge about the area and fun stories to share. Well worth the money for views you won't get anywhere else on Parkway! Ask for Grady!

I can't say enough good things about our rafting experience. Gale, our guide, was very friendly, knowledge & so much fun. My 12 year old was extremely nervous but Gale made him feel comfortable & safe. I highly recommend Wildwater for you adventure & just ask for Gale.

We would have done the ziplining there also, but our youngest is only 8 and 10 was the minimum age. You get a great discount for booking more than one... More
