What a great way to spend some time in Mount Dora with good friends! The ride was exciting, at times a bit scary and we all had lots of laughs! You will definitely get wet! Secure your cell phones and do not wear good shoes!

I believe there are various tours. The one I took was about 90 minutes. I believe it was about $65 a person but I could be wrong on that.......
