We took 4 kids down it a few weeks ago - all 8 years or younger (8,7,5,4). Just keep them warm through the rapids (rain gear will do) in case they get splashed and stop at the hot springs. They'll have a blast.
Just stick to the lines suggested, and it will be no big deal. It will be just enough ofr them to have some fun though.
