Great experience with Whitewater Express! We had the pleasure of having “Private” as our guide during our trip. Fun experience for the whole family. Make sure to check them out and ask for Private!! Highly recommend. We will definitely be coming back again soon!
We had a fantastic time on the challenge trip and the zip line course. Rafting was very exciting and our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful the whole trip. We got launched off at cutbait rapid but our guide had explained the rapid and prepared us so we knew what to do. The zip line course was great also and the guides were great also. Our trip was amazing and we appreciate all the staff for the fun, safe, and friendly experience. Would recommend to everyone up for an adventure!
