As reported by the Bama Buzz, the 120-acre site is located next to Maxwell Air Force Base near I-65, along the Alabama River and within walking distance to downtown Montgomery.

This unique facility differs from traditional waterparks in that they bring the challenge of rafting on real whitewater to an accessible location in the center of a buzzing community. The park features one of the few recirculating whitewater parks in the country.

In addition to whitewater, the park will offer:

  • Zip lining
  • Flat water kayaking & paddleboarding on the Alabama River
  • Bouldering
  • Mountain biking
  • Ropes course
  • 40′ climbing structure


Not into whitewater rafting? This place will have something for everyone. Along with recreation activities, the park will offer various entertainment, dining, retail and hospitality options:

  • Retail stores
  • Outdoor amphitheater
  • Full-service restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating for ∼500 guests
  • Several spaces to hold both large and small scale events and meetings

The facility will hopefully become an attraction for both tourists and residents alike, featuring live music, events, instruction, races, activities for kids and more.
