Gathering planners just announced the addition of a tour that offers a one-of-a-kind family opportunity. “Rockin’ the Rapids” will take you to the U.S. National Whitewater Center, the world’s largest artificial whitewater river and an official U.S. Olympic Training Site. Opened in 2006, the 307 acre public adventure-sport facility overlooks the home rapids of the U.S. National Slalom Canoe/Kayak Team.
The All Sport Pass that’s included with this tour provides access to mountain biking, eco trekking, climb 2 zip canyon crossing & adventure course, whitewater rafting and kayaking, mega zip line, stand up paddle board & flat water kayaking and mega jump. Transportation and lunch are included with this activity.
Participants are encouraged to dress for outdoor activity and to bring a towel and change of clothes. Lockers are available for personal items for a small fee.
This tour runs from 12 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 24, 2014. The cost per person is $130 (10 years and up) or $120 (9 years and younger).
