"I don't know how you guys do it…

Our guide writes us a personal thank you note after every trip and we write one back saying it was the best trip ever. Same thing again this year... the Kennebec was awesome on Saturday and the Dead was the best ride ever on Sunday. Luke was perfect as always, taking us into every wave and hole. See you next year!"

See Rapid Shot Paintball website for more details and pictures of the fields.


Our 13 foot, 6 person Go For It rafts add a whole new challenge to the Dead and Kennebec Rivers. Small rafts are easily maneuvered so that your crew can paddle toward any big wave or drop in the river, but look out when you get there--these small boats really get thrashed by the big waves and holes! This weekend adventure is geared toward veteran rafters and a minimum of 4 people is required to run a Go For It trip.

"Nightfall Paintball"

Play paintball on our four cool fields after a day of rafting on the Dead River. After the raft trip cookout and slideshow (about 4:00) we'll gather up the guns, throw on the camouflage and head to the playing fields for some action packed paintball games. Play until dusk - now that is cool!
