My daughter wanted to go whitewater rafting for her 16th birthday, so we gathered 4 brave friends and headed to Rolling Thunder. This was our 2nd time to raft the middle Ocoee with this wonderful rafting company, and it did not disappoint! The girls and I had an awesome experience because of Ilan, our fabulous guide. We even came away... More

I'm not known for smiling but from start to finish I was. Coach David did a great job and the pictures they took were great (and you can buy a disk cheap). We plan on going back with the grandkids...great fun.

First timer Ocoee for all 7 of us for my wife’s 50th Birthday (and yes 4 of us are in the Half Century Club). The Rolling Thunder Team was super on all aspects of this adventure--well worth the 3 hour drive. The website booking was simple and easy and definitely the best deal I found on the internet.

I really don't mind being on my own, I don't. No fuss, great. However, I was travelling with 3 young kids and it was hot outside. The river was apparently fast that day, so unlike the guide on their website that says kids 3 and up are allowed on the river-- the two six year olds and nine year old... More

Labor Day was crazy busy and our staff did get overwhelmed and was not able to offer our usual level of service. However, our website does not say that we will take 3 year olds on the river. There is another company which will take them and apparently you confused us with them. Our website does also say that you... More

From the registration, to the gift shop, and the bus ride to river, everything was great. Then, the real show begins, and you have a big part to play in it. We did the Middle Ocoee 12:00 trip with guide Steven Van Zant and he was great! The hour and a half trip has almost continuous rapids with a swim... More
