We were thrilled to have Jonathan from the The Toronto Star enjoy the all new River Bug White Water Rafting ride. Here are just a few of the great lines from the article:
"I kick my legs as I float down the Grand River with flippers fastened to my feet and webbed gloves snug around my wrists. I feel like a duck."
"I'm in a one-man inflatable cata-raft (catamaran raft) called a “RiverBug,” with my feet dangling below the surface like propellers as I drift with the whitewater."
"In my wetsuit, I can barely feel the frigid water. All I feel is my gut drop as I approach a series of waterfalls."
"Though much of the ride down the river is calm, the rapids and small waterfalls are intense."
"...my stomach is aflutter but I'm fired up. I feel like I could take on a beast."
