SOOOOOOO FUN! I have seen and done a lot, but never something like this. You get in boats and speed down the river and they do many 360 degree turns. You get SOAKED. They told us some people would likely not get wet depending on their seats, but nope, everyone gets soaked. If you sit near the sides or the front row just expect to be drenched. I made a poncho out of a garbage bag (it was a bit cooler that day) My family made fun of me at first, but we very sorry they didn't do the same about 15 minutes later. Spend the money on the $4 poncho at the gift shop- also you MUST put valuables in ziplocs. Regardless of the excessive water, the ride is thrilling. We saw two bald eagles and many other birds on our trip. Also, near the end of the first half of the journey the "HELLGATE" rocks you ride through are insanely amazing. Part of the movie "A River Wild" was filmed here and you can see why as it is breath-taking. Also, they drop you at a lodge where you have a bbq/family style meal. The food is really good and there is all you can drink pitchers of beer and glasses of wine. You may purchase specific cocktails at a small bar as well. The dessert was homemade berry cobbler. You do need to tip the waitstaff here, but the meal is included with your boat ride ticket. All in all, this is a must do, and great for all ages, from 5 to 95 years of age. You can't go wrong here
