RushSouth Whitewater Rafting_main.jpg


from MILD to wild

Splash into one of the most exciting sections of whitewater in the country.

Our whitewater course is the largest of its kind in the world, and is best described “as wild as Colorado, and as warm as Costa Rica.”

With a dam-controlled flow, we have the ability to provide two types of whitewater rafting experiences.

In the morning, our low-flow excursions provide just the right amount of adventure for the whole family.

In the afternoon the high-flow kicks in, sending up to 13,000 cfs of adrenaline-pumping whitewater towards our class III-V rapids.

Our whitewater rafting truly is the best of both worlds.

Fly over the crashing whitewater, 45 ft. below, at speeds of up to 40 mph on your way to Alabama.

There, you’ll be greeted by The Blue Heron Aerial Course—10 multi-level obstacles, each more challenging than the last.

But, the fun doesn’t stop there.

Next up, you’ll navigate the Treetop Zip Course, before flying back across the Chattahoochee to where you started.
