This was my second time going to Pocono Whitewater, and my entire family had a fantastic time. We went in July of this year during the "freak week" where temperatures topped the 70's and it was rainy. Being on a camping trip in this weather and especially the thought of rafting on a cold (low 70's the high) and rainy day was not appealing. Initially we thought about postponing our trip and were pleased to find out that Pocono Whitewater would give us credit to come put another day if we chose to. Once we got there, we found out about wetsuit rentals for adults and children alike and decided to get one given the weather. The wetsuits kept us so warm and comfortable that we were even able to swim in the water during our rafting trip with no problem. The wetsuits reasonably priced. The fun part about the family style rafting trips is that there are other rafters out there that we got to have water fights with using the water buckets they provided us to throw water on each other. There is also waterguns that can be rented for $10. In addition, because there were more than 10 of us in our group, we received a coupon for a free rafting or paintball day (1 coupon). Our guides were with us the entire time and were friendly and highly knowledgeable. The best part was the bonus riverside bbq that we got midway during the trip. We had a fantastic time rafting, just go with people who would not be easily upset if they are not initially catching up to rafting. With the guides help and people with positive attitudes, you will easily catch on and have a blast!! Pocono Whitewater was such a blast that I am definitely doing this yearly and may even do it in spring time as well due to the wetsuits. We shall see:)
