Want to really challenge your students? Our River Rush course is a 300m stretch of solid white water that offers thrills and spills. With the equivalent of an Olympic sized swimming pool being pumped down the course every 95 seconds, the rapids reach a Grade 3-4 level and require strong paddling and teamwork to navigate the course successfully.

Your course will then end with the challenge of challenges! You'll complete your River Rush Rafting experience with a ride down the Pump Waterfall, an exhilarating 4.5m drop down the high man-made waterfall in the world! 

River Rush Rafting is ideal for high-school students looking to be challenged.
