Very friendly crew. Up and down the rapids 3 or 4 times. Spins and loud music. It was great and we didn't get wet. If you wanted to you could.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this June 2017

If booking call ahead and MAKE sure no group tours are in the same time you picked, because you WILL be bump off. My family and I were bump off not once but TWO TIMES. just because of a group that had more people than us mind you i booked again of time than i pay for three people and the third had to share a seat so three people in a two person row. Didn't even get back some of my money for being forced to give up a seat. So if you wanna feel like the red headed step child BOOK IT!!!!! waste of time waste of money and waste of my time. Book else where like the BEST jet boat in Niagara Whirlpool Jet Boat. YOU WILL BE HAPPIER YOU DID
