Blizzard River

Race Your 8-Person Raft Down a Country River!

There’s no better way to cool off on a warm day than a quick trip to the snow!  Get ready to get drenched on Blizzard River, the ultimate white-water rafting experience.  On a massive, fast-paced country river bordering the woodsy North End, your team of 8 riders will launch into the wettest wilderness adventure East of the Mississippi.

Brrr!  Are you “cool” enough for this frosty-fun challenge?  Climb aboard a full-scale round river raft for a rowdy cruise down this raging down-streamer, where wildly unpredictable currents will toss you around and treacherous waterfalls dripping with icicles will rain down on your head!

You’ll feel like you’re barreling through a rugged, wintry forest, as your raft swirls into dense white mists, through pitch black tunnels, and over the roughest rapids in New England.

You will definitely get splashed, and if you are unlucky – or lucky, depending on how hot it is that day, you might even get completely drenched.  White-water waves come crashing over the raft!  Will you get dunked?  Only the current can say, as your raft spins and bumps and dips down the river.  Just hang on tight, and don’t plan on staying dry!
