    Paddleboarding is fun, affordable and perfectly finished with a beer from their wide selection of local cans/drafts.

    The rafting experience is great! It is a man-made course that was designed by an Olympian and it is challenging but highly enjoyable. Reserve a time slot early before all the slots fill up for the day

    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.

    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.

    It's the ultimate whitewater park—an escalator even delivers you and your boat back upriver after you've tested out the rapids. Read more

    Actually one of the better draft beer menus in Charlotte. Not to mention a great place to hang out and do things outside.

    Need closed toe shoes. Plan ahead, you will only be able to complete 4/5 activities, schedule whitewater rafting right away.

    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.

    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!!
