Thanks for all of the questions.....
Once we get closer to operating in April/May, we'll have our hours that water is running up on the website. We expect to operate March - October, maybe even November. Much to be learned in the first year.....
As for ww boaters, we'll take all types as long as they are in whitewater specific crafts (no dick sporting goods rafts). No personal rafts will be allowed.
Pricing is shaping up to be $19 per day to paddle (whether we operate 8 hours of water or 3). Season pass price pass is $179 for the year, through Dec. 31.
We have two channels, and can run the whole park on 6 pumps or one channel on 3 pumps (or more but probably can't fit more than 4 down one channel without flooding).
Most guests will be non-boaters and will buy a day pass for $49 that includes rafting, the zip line and other land activities. In theory you can repeat rafting as long as we have capacity. Raft trips will be 90 minutes long and more than likely you'll get 4-7 laps. There is a conveyor belt from bottom to top.
Park has 21 feet of drop total, one channel is 1000 ft long, the second is 1400 feet long - they come together at the bottom to form a big feature.
We have a locker room in the main building, restaurant, bar. There is a rafting pavilion where rafting guests gear up and go, rafts are stored. There is also a kayak building where we'll run a kayak instruction program as well as youth team, and regular kayakers can check in and demo from our fleet of kayaks (we're starting with Jackson, will add LL and Dagger and whoever else once we are operational and financially stable)
As I mentioned in my first post, I will need raft guides and instructors, especially in the first year or two. Please spread the word, I'm starting organize staffing now for May and June....grand opening is May 7th weekend. We're hosting slalom Olympic Trials that same weekend.
