“Average, nothing special”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

I had my daughters birthday party here, the place was packed and we found ourselves frustrated with the carousel (which was the main reason for having the party there.) We were told that it would be run every 15-30 minutes and that was far from truth. Even with asking... the carousel was only run Twice in the 2 1/2 hours we were there. Very frustrating!

“A great pizza experience.”
Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

Been to this place many times and Roaring Rapids Pizza is by far the best pizza experience in the area. The pizzas taste fresh with a very crispy crust. There is an awesome salad bar with every possible topping. The atmosphere reminds me of "Bear Country" at Disneyland with the lodge type decorating and Brownie the Bear playing the piano on stage. There is an actual 1930s vintage carousel for the kids to ride free. Step outside on the patio and enjoy your meal with an awesome view of the Willamette River. Before or after your meal, play 18 holes at Camp Putt miniature golf which is located on the front of the property. Miniature golf + great pizza + family= a great afternoon.

“LOVED the pizza, and the location is excellent”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We went on a nice quiet night. I tis right next to the river and such a beautiful setting. Of course the pizza was amazing, I even ate the cold leftovers the next day! They had made a mistake with our first pizza and put some ingredients on that we hadnt wanted, they came out gave us the pizza made in error and made another one straight away free of charge. Of course I just picked the bits off I didn't want and at the lot!:) Cannot say enough about it!!

“Awesome Location..decent pizza”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

It is definitely worth going just to see the setup of the place...river views, fireplace, merry-go-round, and nearby mini-golf is that is your thing. Oh and by the way they will throw in some pizza...its not great so if you are coming for just the pizza may not be your thing but if you are going for an overall experience it can be very good. Weekends there are a lot of little kid parties so fair warning.
