This trip for my boyfriend and I was very last minute but would do it all over again. From start to finish this team had it down to a science is making sure the group enjoyed their time on the river. So knowledgeable and educational on the water, this was an all around adventure. Totally recommend trying at least once... More

Kids said it was the most fun day they'd ever had! Our guide was friendly and made this nervous momma feel very safe. My 60 year old mom enjoyed it as much as my 11 year old daughter. Perfect first rafting trip for families.

My family and I have been twice now and both times we loved every bit of it. The guides are fantastic and their jokes are even better.

We took the whole family to do zip lining at Wildwater. The total tour was about 2.5 hours through the trees around the facility, and over a pond near the main building. The zip line tour was appropriate for kids, but there is a minimum weight limit so that a person can make it from one station to the next.... More
