Attended the 2-day Whitewater Kayaking 101 course. Had a blast. The instructors are super knowledgeable and very easy to learn from. The instructors created a positive environment where you were free to ask any oar as many questions as you like. They also provided additional instruction one on one to help you get the move or technique down. Looking forward to attending the next phase.

There is something for everyone at the Whitewater Center! Lots of river activities on land and in the water like walking trails, biking trails, rock climbing, ropes courses, kayaking, paddle boarding, rafting, and so much more. If you like live music and other events, there is some of that, too. There are a few places for food and drinks. The food is fantastic and lots of drink options. In the winter, there is even an ice skating rink. This is a great place to spend time.

Great place to go for a ride, walk or just to enjoy some water rafting. They have more than you would expect and parking is not bad. During the winter months they have added ice skating and this year they have a races going on. Great place to take the family and you furry friends. Parking is now 6 bucks but if you plan on going more than once then just buy the parking pass for 60 and you can go as many times as you like!

My significant other and myself went for a date day full of adventures. We paid $75 a piece for the all access pass and $6 for parking. We were able to do the white water rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing, and river kayaking. We purchased a bin for the day for $13 The signs say no outside food and drink but I did see several guest with water cans and totes bags that were clearly brought from the outside. The only suggestion I would say is to wear comfortable clothing and prepare to be fully soaked after the water rafting. Swimsuit attire would be best and water shoes

We loved this place. It's a nice outdoor family friendly place. But still will give 4 stars. They need to add more toddler friendly games. My 5 year old could not do anything except rock-climbing and flat river canoeing. Some gentler white water rafting for kids age 7 and below would be awesome.
