Ready to go rafting at RIVERSPORT Rapids? Follow along to begin your adventure!
Once you purchase your pass, fill out your waiver, and receive your wristband at Guest Services in the McClendon Whitewater Center, head to the rafting area at least 15 minutes before your raft trip starts.
Next you’ll meet our raft guides! You may meet Diego from Argentina, Killian from South Africa, Aaron from Oklahoma, or one of our many other raft guides from around the world. They’ll give you an orientation to go over safety instructions and what to expect during your rafting experience. RIVERSPORT Rapids is perfect for complete beginners or rafting pros, so we’ve got you covered.
Afterwards you’ll get outfitted for your trip by your raft guide. Remember, secure footwear is required for rafting! Your raft guide will fit you with a PFD and helmet – and then you’ll be ready to hit the water!
Your raft guide will give you instructions on how to paddle the rapids – don’t forget to listen to them! They’re great at what they do and want you to have the best experience possible. You’ll paddle over to the conveyer belt, which will take you from the lower pond to the upper pond. Then your rafting adventure will begin!
You’ll get multiple runs through the channels, and we’ll have photographers taking pictures of your experience. After your raft trip, visit the EPIC room or check out your photos online.
