My partner and I did a double today and it was so much fun! Cortez was absolutely amazing! There was definitely a few moments I should have had to walk home, but Cortez helped me out and made me feel super okay about literally almost dying lol. Thanks so much!!!

Totally amazing experience. Loved the rainforest flooded with water, the rocky river banks. Our guide Cortez was awesome. This test tracks at the beginning set you up for the ride. Bring your own socks and dress up warm if it’s raining.
