It was an excellent day out for all the family ... as with all these things it wasn't cheap and it is a long day to get as much out of it as possible. We were able to go when the US kids were in school so it was fantastic not having to queue. It would be worth trying to go at a quiet time, long queues for the zip wire, climbing walls and rafting would be really off putting.

Great day, very orgainized, fun guide, my son went in the water and we quickly scooped him up! After running the rapids we had lunch in the resturant and enjoyed the food and drink! A great family fun day!

USNWC has a lot of variety for people of all ages. I have walked and run the trails there. I've flat water kayaked, had food & drink and enjoyed bands. I've been part of a corporate group and experienced their corporate catering and events.
Co-workers have run the rapids and have loved the experience. I can't speak for the zip line or rope course, but the rest of the facility is a lot of fun.

They have a good food selection that is competently executed and a nice beer selection.

I love the food, the live bands, the tap beer, the rafting, climbing and swinging from tree to tree. So glad this is in my home city!

This place is amazing. It has a little something for everyone. Whitewater rafting, zip lines, walking trails, mountain biking, adventure courses, and more. It is Dog friendly- I love going with my dogs and walking the trails then sitting down at the restaurant and having a nice cold frosty adult beverage. They have all kind of special events and every employee I've dealt with has been great.
