    We had a group of 11 people and 4 of them went on the white water rafting trip and enjoyed it thoroughly. Those of us who were on the sidelines were able to walk over to where they were getting their equipment and then we stood along the water’s edge and took pics as they flew by. We had lunch and then 8 of us stayed and walked the trails and saw the Catawba River where people were swimming and kayaking. Some of us wanted to go on the zip line but the line was 1 and 1/2 hours long and so decided to go another day. We will be back and this time be more prepared for all of the possibilities. The facilities and grounds are beautiful and much has been made of the space.

    Great family adventure type experience. Many levels of difficulty available depending on how adventurous you are. We spent one 7+ hour day there, but could certainly have gone back another 1-2 days, as there were so many courses/challenges we didn’t have a chance to do. The facility is very clean/well-kept and in a beautiful setting.

    Love this place. Be sure to thoroughly check out the web site before you go to see which activities are open for the day and then plan to stay for the entire day. The best way to approach a visit is to first schedule your whitewater raft trip if this is something that you wish to do and plan other things around that. DO NOT BE LATE FOR YOUR RAFT TIME or you may have trouble finding another available time that day unless you want to pay $5 to reserve a specific time. You experience more actual whitewater in a one-hour session than you would on most two-day rafting trips on rivers in the region. When you look at it from that perspective, the price isn’t really that bad. Good food, excellent craft beers, and very helpful staff. So glad that I live close enough to have a season All-Sport pass!

    The place was easy to locate and easy to enter. Beautiful location and the idea of it is fantastic. The downside far outweighed the upside. After entering it was very difficult to figure how to access each area and the staff seemed like they didnt care. The next thing was once we figured out how to get involved we had to wait for a helmet that someone else was just wearing. It seems there are not sanitary measure taken and the helmets were almost nausiating in odor. The lifejacket also smelled terribly and the rafting helmets were even worse. We missed our rafting appointment because it took three hours to finally do the 20 second zip line and then the staff acted like we were a problem for going to the later time. Overall a nice area and great idea, just nobody seemed to care and if you have any problem wearing someone elses sweat,, dont go. I wont return.

    This place is amazing!!! If you love outdoor activities, there is nothing to dislike about the USNWC. Every activity is tons of fun. I recommend taking 2 days to see/do everything. Day 1 can be a dry day, day 2 can be a wet day.
