"White Water Rafting Dam Releases ...the most fun you'll have all year!"

Welcome to the world-famous Lehigh River Gorge in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains - home to one of the most popular whitewater rafting trips in the country!  Here you'll discover a close-to-home adventure that feels a world away!  Awesome wilderness scenery and exciting, fun-filled rapids combine for a picture-perfect outdoor day.  You'll laugh. You'll scream. And you'll soak yourself silly!  Absolutely no experience needed!

The deal we get is the most popular Dam Release Whitewater (Ages 9+). Check out the details in the link http://www.whitewaterchallengers.com/lehigh/lehigh-whitewater.asp

This is our most popular trip, and thanks to weekend dam releases, we'll be rafting through the fabulous Lehigh River Gorge all season long... Spring, Summer and Fall.  This trip boasts dozens of exciting rapids combined with spectacular wilderness scenery. You'll laugh, you'll scream and you'll soak yourself silly!

    That's disappointing. I understood it would cost more if you payed later but I reread the info and still don't see any mention that a reservation didn't hold your place on the bus. Other groups I belong to make this very clear in the event description. While I really wanted to go, I wasn't able to be absolutely sure I'd be free to go until around 2 weeks before. I understand that there is a need to firm up reservations in advance and planned to pay around 2 weeks before but there isn't even a mention of a final date to pay. It would've been nice to get a message to hurry up and pay rather than you lost your chance.
