This man-made course was fun (although nothing is as good as the real thing) because the guides taught skills and created challenges for everyone in the raft. Everyone on our trip definitely pushed themselves beyond their limit and was proud to say so afterwards. Expect to get wet, repeatedly! A few things to consider: 1. Bring a towel! You will... More

We were here for a few days and wanted to do some controlled white water rafting. I called and talked to Loraine (I think - sorry). She apologized and said that they were in the off season mode and only open on weekends. She was very nice and patient and answered all my questions even though it was clear that... More

This is our second time going to the complex and we have had fun each time. The weather was raining, but as long as it's not lightening we can still go. The staff is great and the course it so much fun. I have to give a special thanks to our guide Bob- he was knowledgeable, personal, and all around... More

30+ years ago adventure-themed amusement parks like Action Park in NJ introduced artificial white water rapid rides. Those early experiments were basically underwater fans making weak, flat, turbulence. ASCI has advanced the technology significantly to offer a true white-water experience. The magic is in the enormous amount of water that they pump from the bottom pond into the “river” that... More

We've done several whitewater river trips in the past so I wasn't expecting much from a manmade river trip. Was actually quite surprised by how much fun it was. Our guide, Mike, did a great job; even though we circled the route 4 or 5 times, it was different and exciting each time by doing it differently (forward, backward, spinning,... More

We went up last minute on 8/13 at 10 am to inquire into the possibility of rafting. We were told there were 2 spots open at 11 am which was perfect. I recommend making a reservation if you really want to do it and if you are a larger group. 6 people to a boat and many bigger groups were... More

We took our 20 year old kids up to try out the duckie adventure and they had an absolute blast. Guide is required if it's the first time and then it's about 1 1/2 hours of trips down the rapids. There are a lot of rafters to contend with but it all works out. My big complaint is that as... More

Having gone white water rafting many times this serves like a safe way for everyone to get a little intro to kayaking in white water. It worked out great. Kids loved it... Mom learned that she will never kayak on a real river. Not cheap but it's a good time

The white water rafting experience on a man made track was great. Perfect introduction to rafting for my 10 year old.

There was 9 of us in the group, 6 wanted high adventure and 3 wanted minimal adventure. We all got exactly what we wanted. With it being summer and no rain around, to go out on a river and whitewater for the first time would have been rough. It was great going to a more controlled environment. The safety speech... More
