With three older children and one reluctant wife who quickly became the most enthusiastic rapid runner of us all, Ace provided us with a Lower New River rafting experience that was safe, fun, challenging and exciting. Ask for Kevin (Go Phoenix) to be your guide as he worked tirelessly to make this a memorable white water experience for us all. For a family, I recommend you stay in one of the Ace cabins. We were in a Log Cottage, clean and comfy for a family of five. We did the one-day meal plan and the food was good and plentiful. We recommend the water park for some serious family laughter and silliness (did you see Dad fall?), as well as the zip line and local hiking. From the first phone call to the last-day checkout, every staff member at Ace was helpful, friendly, and genuinely grateful that we had chosen Ace. I have three older children. Anything that gets them to put down their phones for three days is major. And that reluctant wife? She's already talking about returning to take on the Gauley.
