“Fun place to walk!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

I like walking by the river. Some Olympians have trained there. It is a place to people watch. There are restaurants by the river as well.

“Super fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

My family and I went this past summer and had so much fun! It had enough of an edge for the adventure seeker and felt safe at the same time. I highly recommend this to people who love the outdoors! We will be going back next summer! My 10 year old son met the minimum height requirement but please check that before you head out!

“Great for a day trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

Don't go here expecting colorado or west virginia... But don't be surprised if the rapids are powerful enough to flip your raft of 4 over either.

This place is fun for what it is. $5 for a 7 min raft ride unlike anything you will get within a short drive from chicago. I take friends here every year and we have a blast.

Theres not many other places in the world where you can raft with out a guide, but have life guards staged every 100ft... so if you have friends afraid of water, this is the place to get them wet!

“Almost died here as no one paid attention to the weight of people in our boat vs. size of boat”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

our boat was way to big for the three of us in it (2 adults and a 12 year old) and when it tipped over and threw us out, one of us got trapped beneath the boat, and it was way to large to tip over. Staff was quite slow to respond and acted like it was no big deal to a very harrowing experience. We'll never do it again and are doing everything we can to keep friends away.
