This will be good for the area, I mean this story came from the Rome Georgia paper. I think many will come to the area to do this whitewater thing.

Yessir, we've heard about it too. Look like its a one of a kind thing and should help your city alot.
These things are real popular up in north Georgia but they are way out away from any places, looks like yours is right downtown, how cool is that.

I am so looking forward to this! I have a BFF in N. Georgia who will be coming here often to participate and there is stuff about this at UGA too. It will be good to have a influx of outdoor types in Columbus.
The river looks AWESOME now!

I thought there would be more people talking about the opening on Memorial Day on this Topix. II saw a thing on our local news about it. Looks like its going to be really fun.

On the Phenix City side there's already a new place, Chattahoochee Brewing Company I think they call it, which is right near the start, at the Riverwalk and 13th Street Bridge.

Hopefully many others will follow.

Glad to see this being completed , I know it will be good for your city. There are many people who love this kind of thing. I might try it too when I come down since its not way out in the boondocks.

From what I have seen they put this thing together right and have some top notch guides to raft you down the river.

There are going to be two companies having excursions on the Chattahoochee in Columbus.
One is White Water Express

Their website has much more info and might answer your questions.

I agree with everyone that this can only help Columbus and I think it will finally give Columbus an identity.

You got that right, I was in Columbus for a total of 4 years and can say that there wasn't that much to do. Great to see Columbus moving toward outdoor activities to get people of their butts.
