Jul 9, 2013 - Rafting Things Out At McHenry’s Adventure Sports Center

If you are Maryland and is craving for some fun and adventure, we reckon you should organize a MD bus rental day trip out to Marland’s McHenry for a fun day of kayaking, canoeing, climbing and geocaching. Adventure Sports Center at the heart of McHenry also offer hiking and biking to their charter bus rental customers and visitors who are not into adventure sports but more into nature and if they have a deep love of the beauty of the gorgeous sights at the top of the mountains. Adventure Sports Center is located at the top of Wisp Mountain of McHenry, Maryland and is one of the most extensive artificial whitewater course there is in the region.

An artificial whitewater course means that it is an artificially-generated rapids and made suitable for all forms of water sports like whitewater canoeing, kayaking, racing, rafting, and playboating.

Some MD bus rental customers might be a little concerned about safety concerns and bringing smaller children to the man-made rapids but the guides have all assured their visitors of a couple of things before they even step foot into one of the boats; one, the rapids is very controlled and two, water isn’t deep. Furthermore, other safety measures includes a half hour talk before the rafting begins so that charter bus visitors are more aware about what expect during the whole experience. There were some parents who came in groups, together with their children aged somewhere between 7 - 10 for the ride and the kids had a lovely time.

During colder months, one of the things that we might have to contend with would be the chilly weather. But the good news is that, since the rapids is man-made, the water is heated to the right temperature.

Another fantastic thing about heading out to a place like Adventure Sports Center of McHenry Maryland are the guides. Knowing how to handle the rafts and gears is one thing but being assuring, informative, helpful, friendly, and comfortable with the guests is very, very important...in fact, people have the most fun when they have a friendly guide who is assuring and made them feel comfortable enough to enjoy a ‘dangerous’ expedition.

Bus Rental MD charter bus visitors laments that one round of riding is way too short so, they would often end up going for two to three rounds. After they have reached the end of the ride at the bottom of the rapids, a lift will conveniently bring these adventure-seekers all the way to the top again...effortless and convenient. Reviews about it being an expensive is unfounded considering the fact that it is much safer, more convenient and certainly so much more professional than having to make a charter bus tour visit to a real rapids where Mother Nature is in complete control.

Please do head over to their website to find out more information about what you should and should not bring for the trip...and have fun!
