Canoe/Kayak Slalom

Canoe/Kayak Slalom requires athletes to race for time through both downstream and upstream gates with spectators lining the channel just feet from the action. The course is 305 meters (1,000 feet) long and drops 510 cm (16’ 9”) from start to finish. The flow is estimated to be level WW III-IV at 10 m³/s (350 ft3/s) during competition.

Kayak Cross

Kayak Cross is the newest paddlesport to be added to the Olympic Games amping up whitewater excitement to a whole new level. Kayakers launch side-by-side from a ramp 10 ft above the water and drop into the churning water in a race to the finish!

Family Fun!

It’s Opening Weekend for RIVERSPORT’s 2024 season – so all your favorite adventure sports will be available 11a to 6p. Grab a day pass or make the most of the summer with a season membership. Your pass or membership also gives you free access to Prime Viewing during Olympic Trials.
