Did our zip line canopy tour yesterday. 6 of us on a girls trip. Kenneth and Loujon made the trip so much fun. Could not have asked for better guides. Highly recommended!

Remember when we were little and just loved staring out the window. Magnify this along with the gorgeous weather, easy driving, and a friendly-knowledgeable guide (T.H.) and you have a authentically pleasant ride; we caught the train out and road the jeep back. For a last-minute decision to add the Jeep ride it was a nice touch.

First I was so nervous about a self guided tour, I thought what if we flip what if I can't get back in the boat, but my husband was determined to go down unguided, so we rented a duckie, the driver of the van that took us up was super nice super informative even stopped and showed us the first drop! You do get soaked in the duckie but all in all it was not as cold as I expected! We never fell out, our trip down was perfect! And we had so much fun! I will say this my husband and I both paddle kayaks and canoes the duckie is not for the faint of heart, if this would have been my first time ever paddling anything I would probably not be getting a duckie and going it alone! But if you know the basics of paddling and steering it is an awesome good time and the best way to go! The Wildwater staff were super nice and helpful!! And jumping in their hot shower before I put my dry clothes on was great! So glad they offered that at their facility! I would definitely use them again!

This trip was our second time with Wildwater. Never a disappointment. The staff there are top notch. Knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. Patricia (our driver) who was very friendly and a great driver. Pappy was our guide (for both times) was as fun the second as the first! Will defiantly use them again when we visit the area in the future.
