The U.S. National Whitewater Center is the world's premier outdoor facility featuring whitewater rafting, biking, zip lines, live music, craft brews and more.
Whitewater rafting was a blast. Guide Graff was awesome. Definitely a must go.
Beware of long lines on the weekends.
Make sure to come on Thursdays for live music. Have a beer or three before you get there, the beer lines can't get quite lengthy.
Plan your day! You can't do it all in one day,'particularly on a busy weekend so decide in advance. The longest wait times for rope courses and Mega Zip were a result of waiting for harness equipment.
This is one of the greatest resources Charlotte has to offer! Get the season pass. It quickly pays itself off and gives you unlimited access to almost everything inside the park.
Mega Zip, adventure rafting
Nice place for a picnic!
Best place to hike for exercise!
A great place for a team offsite, or to take some out of town friends. There's a gift shop, and a restaurant/bar that'll keep you refreshed throughout the day.
Fish Tacos and a Sierra Nevada with some sweet potatoe fries :-)
Having so much fun!! Free concert!
River Jam 5K
This place is 100% worth the fee. I was there from open to close and still didn't get to do everything I wanted to! Its so much fun!!
A unique and fun way to spend a summer day or weekend day. Tons of activities, and an awesome beer garden with local brews!
River Jam Concerts on Thursdays & Saturdays !
so much fun!
You can get GoPro on rent and shoot all the cool things you do here!
Actually one of the better draft beer menus in Charlotte. Not to mention a great place to hang out and do things outside.
The biking trails are great, but not for beginners!
Need closed toe shoes. Plan ahead, you will only be able to complete 4/5 activities, schedule whitewater rafting right away.
Nice place to go rafting and mountainbiking. Kano, kayak, climbing are also fun
You'll need your own kayak and kit to hit the whitewater.
Layer for the weather
Amazing time! Great for company trips and fun family excursions!
Best Place in Charlotte to hangout on the weekend!
Be prepared to be covered in l'eau de Catawba, but you'll be back in business after a shower in the locker room. The facilities are usually clean but not always kept up when there's a festival crowd.
Wings are amazing!!
A perfect picnic spot in Charlotte. A lot more to do than just Rafting. Yes, Thursday nights are the best. Have a great time with friends and family !
Pay attention to the raft talk! I used every single lesson, including grabbing the rope when we flipped...and lost my sunglasses! SO much fun.
Rafting is a blast but not for the fainthearted...it is a rough ride there! Also try the kayaking and ropes course/ziplines. Mountain biking even on the easy course is hard!!
Even the beer is great.
Worst place to try and hike with a dog. Fucking too many bikers.
Ask for Vincent Nelson is want to learn and really raft. Great guide!
This place is a must see. If you are in Charlotte, save a day and participate!
Awesome place!! Loved the rafting! Great walking trails. A bit pricey.
Zip line canopy tour was awesome!!
Rafting a must try, paddle boarding was awesome, people in guest services super nice!
USNWC is a wonderful place to take your pup! However be a smart pet owner and on festivals that have fireworks DO NOT bring your dog. They WILL runaway. Happens every year. Festivals are kick a** tho!
Looks like a great place to bring your kids or if you're just a big kid! Whitewater, zip line, wall climb, looks like a lot of fun.
If you like adrenaline & live in the area, a Season Pass is the only way to go!
Don't eat at the restaurants!!
Won't do the brew bash again ,,,, 20 seats empty and 30 min wait to eat!!!!!!
L ots of music but it sucks
Come to Thursday River Jam! Bring a chair and your dog!
Great outdoor activities! Gather up the family or friends and get active!
