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.
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!
Do yourself a favor and check out their website before you come. Lots of the problems people had (see other tips) could have been alleviated by simply reading the website:
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!
Awesome place! Lots to do for the entire family! All my kids had a blast, my wife-just as much fun! And I rode the trails over and over. I'll be back for sure.
If ever in Charlotte, this is a must do. Mountain biking, kayaking, whitewater rapids, rock climbing and more outdoor fun. Amazing lunch spot on-premise w/even better microbrew beer selection.
Been there,even did the zip line, great place
Ranger IPA in the house!!!!
The canopy tour may be extra, but it is so worth it! It's a light challenge with a lot of fun zip lines, repelling, and rope bridges. The tour guides were excellent also! I will do it again!
Awesome get there early. Get Eric for your guide when rafting. Jump from the mega jump before the rest of your party then watch them. Fun zip lines are not as scary as I had hoped.
