“Enjoy rafting and sight seeing”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Guides there will give lessons if you need them. There is a little stand there that sells drinks and snacks so that helps. Bring camera if you are there to sight see. Right in the center of downtown so you are close to lots of restaurants.

“Fun experience, but you'll probably flip”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Leave your car keys and cell phones in your car! A new experience for downtown Columbus, whitewater rafting has emerged. Billed as the longest "urban" course in the country, it's 2.5 miles of fun, mostly Class II rapids. But, if you go late in the day - after four, when the water is up (controlled by an upstream dam) - you'll have more fun and the rapids get better. You'll probably flip because your raft mates are inexperienced, but who cares. You'll be quickly picked up, adding to the fun. Whitewater Express, the only vendor for rafting, does a nice job. They have experienced guides and they run an efficient operation. Their location is a little tricky to find, across the river in Phenix City. Check their map for directions.
