“AWESOME!”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

The USNWC is AWESOME! Be it for children or adults, there is something for everyone! Excellent adventure activities--rock climbing walls, ropes courses, zip lines, whitewater & flatwater kayaking; as well as hiking, running & biking trails! Again, this place is AWESOME! They also offer various concerts and programs throughout the year, so be sure to check out their website! We went with friends who brought their small children (4 & 6) and parents (folks in their late 60's) as well our own children (ages 5 & 6), and we all had a ball as there were activities available that we could all enjoy! One con is the cost--it is a bit steep, but if you plan it so that you spend the entire day there, it's totally worth it!

“Fun, Family, Friendly”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

The USW is a great place to get outdoors. The setting has great adventures. The food is GREAT and the open lawn setting is a delight for an evening on the blanket enjoying the sunset.

“Favorite place in Charlotte”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

For $150 you get a season pass which gets you unlimited rafting, biking, climbing and everything else. The trails are amazing with varying difficulty for all skill levels. If you are active and love the outdoors, this is the place for you. (Not as much fun if you are out of shape or have trouble getting around)
