Chattahoochee Rapids Reopened After Rafters Flipped Into Water

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports at least 10 of 17 large rafts flipped on the Cut Bait rapid shortly after the course opened in May. More than 70 of the first rafters who traversed the rapid were dumped into the river that separates Georgia and Alabama in the Columbus area.

No injuries were reported, but the rapid was off-limits to paying customers for a couple weeks after as guides went through additional training.

Whitewater Express owner Dan Gilbert says the additional training has led to a much higher success rate through the rapid.
