Although subject to change based on conditions, we typically take lunch just after running Sweets Falls, with prime viewing of other rafts. Cheer their successes, wince at their failures, cheer their recoveries! Lunch is a hearty buffet, including build your own sandwiches, fresh fruit, sides, snacks and dessert.
