Xavier, glad to hear that the rain made it even more fun for you. We love going down the river in the rain ourselves. We should start a "fans of rain" club. Hope to see you roll with Thunder again. -Bobbye Miller

There may be a weight limit. It depends upon which river you are interested in going down. We are located in two states and run three different rivers. Do you know which one you were interested in?

Response from Bobbye M | Property representative |
How long each trip would take depends upon how the river is running on any particular day. Could be from 30 minutes to 3 hours. Hope this helps.
