    **UPDATE....I posted the same review on the PoconoWhitewater website but it was since deleted. Makes me believe they only post the positive reviews. Not very honest!! Again....misleading.

    9/11/14- It was fun once you are actually rafting, but here's the downside- we were told to be there at 11:15, but we didn't even load the bus to go to the river until 12:45!! The company advertised that we would stop MIDWAY down the river for a bbq lunch. That's where we started! We had lunch at the beginning! They also advertise that you are on the water for...Read More

    121 people rafting in a group? Not fun, ruins the point of going out and white water rafting. Had to constantly stop and wait for everyone. Wasnt able to enjoy the outdoors. One of the guides was also unfriendly and completely full of himself and his rafting skills.

    We did Family trip and I was amazed on how unorganized this place was. Our reservation time was 12:15. We didnt even leave the place until 1:15 after waiting around and long orientation on safety. Which is a joke, because the river trip lasted about 5 hours of calm non-moving water. The entire trip your paddling to move. The guides are not helpful once on the river they make hand signals that make no sense, monkey's could do better. I don't know how they can call this whitewater rafting, it is false advertising. Every time the river would speed...Read More

    We just came back from Poconos white water rafting.
    It was amazing! My family, my wife and 4 years old son had a great time.
    At the end of the trip my son told me that he just grew up and he is a big boy now. Fantastic!!!
    Guides where Great. Thank you guys!
    We will definitely be back for Level 2 and 3.

The company advertised that we would stop MIDWAY down the river for a bbq lunch. That's where we started! We had lunch at the beginning! They also advertise that you are on the water for 3-4 hours. We were on from exactly 1:53-3:40- not even 2 hours!! For $55 a person, I expected the full 3-4 hours. Disappointed with their misleading information.

The guides are not helpful once on the river they make hand signals that make no sense, monkey's could do better. I don't know how they can call this whitewater rafting, it is false advertising. Every time the river would speed up or go over small rapids, the guide up front told everyone to take the paddles out of the water to wait for people, it was so miserable. I say in 5 hours on the river, 20 mins of rapids, 3 hours of paddling to move, and a hour of floating because we are "going too fast" Also, we had one blonde guide who would Scream at you on the bus ride, she thought she was being cute, but her voice was piercing and people would give her looks and she would make jokes about how annoying she was...but she was awful. So avoid the bus she goes on, because its a 20 minute ride of her screaming at you about the surrounding towns and their history.
