I have been whitewater rafting in West Virginia (Lower New River and Summer Gauley River) and also up in Washington on the Skokomish River. When you go white water rafting on an actual real deal "hey-you-can-actually-die-doing-this" river the rafting company/guide gives you a block of...More

During the night you have the city lights on and the river rolling by. It is very calming. They also have concerts nearby during the day/ The Emporium restaurant is nearby for a drink or dinner.

My Ohio family visited and had fun rafting at the East Race. It is very reasonably priced entertainment. It also enabled my grandchildren to spend time in the great outdoors.

I've been White Water Rafting 3 times, and this place is just like the real thing. The rapids are class 2, so expect to get wet, but you're unlikely to fall out. They provide helmets, and life jackets if you do fall in. There were...More

It's a man made canal for rafting. It's very dangerous!!! I would only recommend it if you are a expert swimmer. My extended family went. We rented 2 boats and both tipped. Not enough life guards. The rapids are created by cement structures in the...More

Great way to spend some time on the weekends. You will get wet. Wear the right shoes and everything else is provided for a $5 per person ticket. Lots of fun!!

Some smart people created a very neat attraction. For paddlers with some experience this seems like a thrilling way to safely enjoy some wave action and obstacles to dodge. Lots of people using it the day I visited.
