The water is always 52 to 56 degrees. We have NEVER used them. After a few minutes of getting wet, your used to it... there are parts you can even get out of the raft and swim. Its very refreshing.

I wouldn't bring any child that wasn't a strong swimmer. There are chances of getting bumped off on the the rapids.

There may be a weight limit. It depends upon which river you are interested in going down. We are located in two states and run three different rivers. Do you know which one you were interested in?
