Rolling Thunder took great care of us from start to finish! They make the learning part fun for sure, even though everyone is nervous. We got Subway as our guide on the Double Trouble rafting trip with lunch. One person in our raft couldn't even swim!! If that tells you how comfortable we all were. My 12 year old was the smallest/youngest on our trip and Subway took SUCH great care every time we hit big rapids, I'd look over and he had his hand on my little guys life jacket, making sure he was ok. This definitely helped me as mom to relax knowing I was not the only one looking after my guys... And have fun! What an incredible day! We are already planning our trip for next year! Thanks Subway and Rolling Thunder for making our family vacation extra memorable!!

AMAZING! We were a big group of 7 and only 1 of us had been rafting in the past, but our guide Chris was phenomenal. He truly knew how to read our group and made it exciting but also made us feel comfortable and safe the whole trip. We were a big group but they allowed us all to stay in the same raft and all the guides seemed so friendly and we’re constantly cracking jokes on the bus ride to keep the vibe positive. We will definitely be back! Great prices too!

We had SUCH a great time as this was our very first rafting experience. We had Tristan as our guide and he made the trip even more enjoyable! We did the half- day trip down the Ocoee river and were very pleased with the outcome. We had beautiful weather and our boat only had 4+ Tristan in it. The price was affordable and for what they provide, it is definitely worth it! their photographer took multiple photos so you do not have to worry about bringing your phone or anything. Tristan confidently explained the whole process, what to do and what not to do from beginning to end. He highlighted the spots along the river that were exceptional, told stories of past experiences, and engaged us all for different experiences throughout the trip. He was wonderful and definitely a man who did his job well and seemed to actually enjoy it! Thank you to everyone who makes the rafting trips daily as it has encouraged us to get more into rafting!

Great experience, great value - a must go if you enjoy white water!!! About a 1.5 hr drive from Atlanta. The rapids were a mix of 3, 4, and 5’s. Extremely fun, decently challenging. There was very little lull in the trip. The guides are super nice, the shop is well organized. The other amenities are… not the best, but that’s not why you are there.

It's River Time ...

are you ready?
