    I grew up in WV not far from where this place is. If you have never been whitewater rafting, this will be an experience of a lifetime. If you have been before and found it to be tame, this section of the New River will have some exciting pathways, drops and rapids for you to experience. The adrenaline rush itself is worth the trip. If I wasn't already on vacation during that weekend, I would be there in a heartbeat. For those going, have a great time.
