BigTime Whitewater Rafting – 5 hours in a raft, 12+ miles long (age 8+)
We call it BigTime Whitewater because it’s the most challenging whitewater rafting trip we offer… and the Lehigh Gorge State Park is where it all happens. This unique park is surely one of the gems of the Pennsylvania State Park system. Thrill yourself with a real whitewater rafting trip in outdoor scenery that will blow your mind. 900-foot canyon walls tower over your head at times – it’s awesome. This trip is perfect for adventurous people who are relatively fit, and kids 8 years old and up are welcome.
