Past 2 yrs we have gone to Jim Thorpe to do a summer rafting trip with 3 families which consists of 12 boys ranging from 5-14. The rafting outfit we usually book was soldout for the days we needed so we went with this one. Booking was fine, the actual location has a very nice set-up with a pond and... More

The Zip line was not that long. We had two people that were afraid of heights but they did it. It's not a difficult ride. It was a short zip but exhilarating. I personally would have liked it to be higher and longer. It is great for kids and people with a fear of heights.

My friends and I went whitewater rafting down the Lehigh River in July of 2015 and we used Whitewater Rafting Adventures. Its a great rafting place and highly recommend them. The instructor was a seasoned vet of the river and helped us out throughout our journey. What a beautiful scene it is out there in beautiful Pennsylvania. They were extremely... More

This was the worst place that I've ever went white water rafting, and very unsafe. There were boulders everywhere as well as no guide on the boat. I've been on class 3 to 5, and never ever did I ever have the worst experience anywhere, but this place. Way too over crowded, and not enough space in the water without... More 

SteveWRA, Manager at Whitewater Rafting Adventures, responded to this review

Sorry you felt unsafe during your visit this past season. We rarely guide our customers from their rafts so I hope that was not your expectation before you came. If it was I can understand some of your frustration. I'd like to post some information for anyone reading this review that is concerned about safety or our operation procedures that... More

We had a wonderful time whitewater rafting on 10/10/15. The guides were knowledgeable and made it a fun adventure. We got wet but we knew that would happen prior to booking this adventure. Upon our arrival back at camp they treated us to a hotdog buffet lunch, which was very nice. Highly recommend this small company over some of the... More

This was our first time whitewater rafting. We timed our visit with a water release event from the local dam on a Saturday in September. Four adults and one kid in one raft.

Perfect for first timers whitewater rafting! First, and foremost, I have to compliment the amazing staff!! It was a busy holiday weekend, last day of damn release, and a lot of visitors (some just rudely inattentive) with whom all the staff were sincere, patient, and considerate with! It was a very large group on the Lehigh River, and though there... More

We went here as a group of 11 people ranging from 18-32 years of age. The group was split fairly evenly between 2 rafts. At first, we thought we were ahead of the learning curve but we were sorely mistaken. The Lehigh river is a beginner's river but we went in the day of the dam opening, so you can... More

I went to white water rafting today. In general, it has been a day filled with fun. However, some of the staffs (particularly those who were staying behind the counter) do not provide adequate service. I understand that there was a big group today. But, the level of service they provided was way too low. One example: Customers are waiting... More

Sorry to hear about your experience. I don't believe I was present when this occurred so I don't have the entire story but have seen similar incidents. We do not wait on late arrivals as a standard policy but sometimes guests do arrive just in time or a few minutes late and we are able to accommodate them. The guides... More
