Corrupt amusement parks lure visitors with fluffed sugar wads and metal structures that launch riders on deceivingly near-death scream machines. Rebel against unruly parks on nature's finest rollycoaster, water ride, and tilt-a-whirl built into one: for $99, you get a one-day, two-night rafting and camping excursion on the Lower New River from River Expeditions (up to a $200 value) in Oak Hill, WV (about a four-hour drive from Columbus). This package includes one full day of rafting, two nights of camping (you can bring your own tent, sleeping bag, and pillow, or rent them for an additional price), one deli lunch on the river, daily continental breakfast, one dinner, and beverages. Grab up to eight Groupons to bring along the whole crew or start a new summertime hobby.

Bond with friends and family as you go into battle with just a paddle against the watery forces of Mother Nature. The Lower New River rafting trip explores a stretch of tumultuous rapids that carry bottled love letters and the designation of "National River" from the National Park Service. Whether you're a beginner rafterfarian or veteran paddler, River Expeditions will forge you an ideal river path during your two-night getaway. The river ranges from class II "mostly mild" to class V "might need new pants," with a series of rapids slowing into calm pools, which encourage paddlers to break and relax between challenging rapids along their journey. The trip leaves from River Expeditions' headquarters, about four miles southwest of the famous New River Gorge Bridge. Rafters must be 12 years or older if accompanied by an adult or at least 18 years old to go unaccompanied.

An expert river guide will lead each rafting trip, using the company's more than 70 years of combined experience as their compass and a seventh sense for the river's history to point out eye-pleasers such as naturally carved canyons and the highest vehicular bridge in America. After a full day of paddling, lay under the starry night in base camp to woo your guests with knowledge of river-rafting constellations, such as "Thor's Paddle" and "Could Be a Rock."

After the trip, a photo CD (included with this Groupon) of your voyage will be given to you for convenient reminiscing.
