Chase was professional and funny and an excellent guide. This was my first time rafting and had a little anxiety but he made it so fun and I trusted him completely. This was a great adventure for a first timer over 60

Went water rafting down the Pigeon Forge. Was very scared but the guides were professional, friendly and made the trip a lot of fun. The view was pretty all the way down the river. I am hooked and can't wait to go back.

Lost the action photo disk. Got back to Empire Louisiana and no photo disk, Very sad. It was nice the water went over my head. Couldn't see me, the water covered me in the photo. I liked the ride.
