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?

Response from Bobbye M | Property representative |
How long each trip would take depends upon how the river is running on any particular day. Could be from 30 minutes to 3 hours. Hope this helps.
