I wasn't too happy with the people at this location. Go to Rapid Expedition instead. You will have better experience and guaranteed fun there.

The upper river trip is about 90 minutes on the water. Total time will be about 2 - 2.25 hours depending on how many others are participating (arriving on time, signing waivers, etc.)
