A friend and I took our 2 kids - 8 and 10 flat water tubing last weekend. We had a great time. The trip was very relaxing and the kids enjoyed it as much as the adults. It was listed as a 2 hour trip but you could actually float all day. Just get out, jump back on the bus... More

We took a flatwater tubing trip with three friends on the Shenandoah River with River Riders. The check-in process was very easy, as we'd reserved online and digitally completed waivers (I hear this isn't so easy on busier weekends, but there weren't too many people out this day). This trip was a bit spendy, as there are some fees that... More

After providing my height I was strapped in the halter (sitting) for the Mega Zipline. I asked if I could video the adventure and the girl said "yes, but hold on to your phone with a death grip because there is a bump when the breaking happens". Okay. It was a great trip across until the end when the break... More

Came here with a bunch of friends to go Lazy River tubing on the Shenandoah River. The people at River Riders are pretty chill and laid back compared to all their requirements on their website. We made reservations and paid a head of time but were late and missed our reservation time; once we got to the River Riders everything... More

My girlfriend and I love outdoor adventures. Harper's Ferry is one of my favorite places to stop off at when I travel through the area so it was an ideal location for us to spend our day off together. I casually selected River Riders to provide us a guided white water kayaking tour of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers and... More

Joe and Rose, you two were just AWESOME. Safety was a priority and you both made the adventure fun and interactive. Thank you for catching us when we came in too fast or laughed at us when we hooped and yelled down the course. You two did great!

We went on a white water rafting trip with our 3 children (ages 7, 11 & 14)...it was a perfect trip for our family! We were worried about the 7 yr old being able to "handle it"...but it was completely fine....I would just recommend SKIPPING the lunch & eating at the BBQ stand up the street...YUMMY....and so much better than...

We went to the Adventure Park for the tree top obstacle course and Ziplining. Many of us were first timers so found it loads of fun and it didn't take long for us to test our agility and body strength up in the trees. We went mid week in the afternoon so didn't have any of the check-in issues mentioned... More

My family started the morning at the adventure park followed by white water rafting in the afternoon. Long but very fun day experience was priceless. Our first time visiting and everyone was so friendly and helpful! Would go back and recommend to everyone!

We returned to river riders after a fun time last year.This time we did zip lining. We had Justin and Lexi as our guides and we had a blast. It was an exciting activity that I was not sure if I would like.My husband and 2 daughters were with me. Everyone had a great time and can't wait to come... More
