The Whitewater Center expects to bring-in nearly $7 million this year, just enough to cover its bills and make a small profit of $11,000.

The city of Charlotte gives the center $286,000 annually in taxpayer dollars.

The Center says despite the recession, people are coming out to enjoy the rapids, rock wall climbing, and the cafe.

"The bulk of our business takes place between April and the end of October, so we're cautiously optimistic we're going to end up having a pretty good year," said Operations Manager Jeff Wise.

Hank Broska and his wife spent some time at the U.S. National Whitewater Center on Thursday.

"It's our first time," said Broska. "We heard so much about it."

This year, the park is offering an all-sport pass of $49 which makes it more affordable and allows visitors to enjoy all the park has to offer. Officials think this help boost the bottom line.
