White Water Rafting

The Rapids are currently closed to non-members until further notice


Right in the heart of Nottinghamshire, you can experience the rush of white water rafting. There really is nothing like it and as a group bonding activity, this one is pretty hard to beat. Absolutely tailor-made for a stag or hen weekend, but this is the kind of action any group will love.

We've got the best white water team in the business. And our gang of experts will guide you down the 700m course, making sure you return home safe, happy and wet!

After you've tackled the rapids you can now relax on our outdoor decking area with a beer and a pizza from our Rapids Retreat Café.

New Rapid Rafting

Rapid White Water Rafting is a one hour session for anyone wanting to give Rafting a try or fancy a quick go down the course for just £99 per raft! Available on the 10am slot every morning!
