This is very fun, but still cold in April because the water is melted snow. It was 1-3 rapids and not bad for beginners.

My Mom just informed me we paid $65/person because no reservation. I think normal is $45, but they allow you to book on their website. We weren't really sure we were going until morning. Kids are unpredictable.
