    Would have been more fun if we could have played soley with the group we came with. Instead we had to play against the local militia. Getting shot from the elbow down is not considered a 'kill' shot and your are still eligible to play, but I self eliminated myself in just about every game because once that thing pops you in the hand, you've had enough. If you are inexperienced, go with a large group of people of equal skill and then play among yourself because you will have way more fun.

    We went rafting last weekend during a dam release and had a terrific time. The scenery was beautiful. The guides were all very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. We were surprised by how many rafts were put in with our group and this was the first time we were on a raft trip where the guides didn't ride in the raft, but for the level of the rapids and the speed of the water flow it worked out fine. Most rafts got stuck on a rock at least once, giving us all a chance to laugh and figure out how to wiggle out of our situation, with the guides encouraging...Read More

    First time rafting in PA. Had lots of rain prior so the river was deep. Guides were super cool. Can't wait to do it again. Prices in their gift shop were very reasonable.

    First time whitewater rafting yesterday and it was a good experience! Yes, some people got stuck in the back because of rocks but one of the kayakers ended up riding with them to help out. Perhaps mothers with small children should have been integrated beter with everyone else, but it didn't ruin the experience.. It just gave us more time to swim and have water fights.

    The crew works hard.. We saw them all day trying to keep us on the right path and then afterwards they were helping out with the bbq and cleanup.

    Be aware that if you're in rush,...Read More

    So they claim a dam release (the company has no control over this), yet the water was still barely a foot deep in some sections of the river. That made some of the stretches of the river quite boring... basically getting stuck on rocks and using the paddle to push off from the bottom of the river to free yourself...ie: not white water rafting.

    The Rafts are in good condition, however they make you travel in a group of about 12 rafts with 3-4 guides on kayaks on the river guiding you. This poses a problem as many of the rafts will contain very inexperienced...Read More

All in all it was a great day.

Be aware that if you're in rush, which you shouldn't be.. Your trip probably won't get back until after 6pm. Unless no boats get stuck, then I imagine it'll be much earlier.

Looking forward to going back and hoping for even bigger rapids :)

The Rafts are in good condition, however they make you travel in a group of about 12 rafts with 3-4 guides on kayaks on the river guiding you. This poses a problem as many of the rafts will contain very inexperienced rafters and the guides make you wait for everyone to catch up at certain points. Our trip was suppose to be 4 hours long, and it ended up being over 6 hours because 2 stupid raft groups had no idea how to paddle / free themselves when they get stuck on rocks. We ended up waiting more often than riding rapids unfortunately.

Besides that, my biggest complaint would be that they don't properly train their new employees. We had a guide, who's it was their 2 day on the river and she was guiding the front. Not only would she bump into us (we knocked her out of her kayak once), but she would often tell us the wrong path to go through the rapids. Eventually we just stopped listening to her and trusted our instincts which served us much better. They certainly need to do more runs with new employees before they guide people down the river. The more experienced guides were very personable and skilled on the river though and would recommend them anytime(Alex and Andrew were their names).

Bottom line: If you've never been rafting then this is an easy river to try out. I would classify it as a class 2 at best. If you've been white water rafting before, then this is a river to avoid as you'll just be disappointed and perhaps frustrated with the other groups.
