I saw an offer for this on Groupon and persuaded a group of ladies from work to come along. Driving there on a rainy Saturday in February I did think maybe I'd made a mistake. However, we were one of 4 groups that went out and every person I saw was laughing and enjoying the fun. Our guide, Beth, was... More

My daughter trains here, she is a Canoe Slalom athlete. The white water course is awesome. Well maintained with great features. Great if your into adrenaline sports. They do many activities as well as this and the country park has something for everyone.

We came as a family bringing the caravan so that i could participate in the full outlaw distance triathlon. The camping/caravanning site staff were excellent and so friendly, we could have asked for a better deal/service. Toilet blocks were cleaned often and the park was spotless. The kids loved the activities on offer especially the segways and the climbing. We... More

Absolutely fantastic day we had - I've never done this before and was a little apprehensive whether I would actually enjoy it. Went along with my hubby, his two brothers and their wives. Apart from the instructor, there was nobody under 40 in the raft!! Ben was great - had an absolute scream. Think the tone of the day was... More

We had a good safety / basic skills briefing, then hit the water. Having rafted elsewhere in the world this man made set up compared well. You go up and down the course a few times, carrying the raft back up each time. This is no hassle and allowed us time to chat about the course. Our guide Rob was... More

Booked husband and teenagers on for this activity, and we were really pleased. Instructor Danny was excellent, getting good balance of safety and good fun. You get 4 runs down the course, and pAddle back up the canal on the other side in between. Wet suit equipment etc all great. This is not a cheap activity, but excellent cue for... More

Seven of us, all work colleagues, went for a jolly to the white water course at The National Watersports Centre, Nottingham. We were kitted out with all the safety equipment and wetsuits then had an in depth safety briefing with our instructor Matt. All aboard the raft onto the smooth lake for practice paddling and instruction where Matt made us... More

Had an amazing time white water rafting. Ben and Beth were really good and friendly even though they carried on pushing us in the water.

Enjoyed watching the white water rapid shooters and were treated to some of the Great British Squad training - played mini Golf which I thought was quite expensive but enjoyed it anyway. Then had a good walk and watched the Nottingham Sailing Club out on the water again very relaxing. Watch the speed bumps on the roads around they are... More
