So I don't normally do this, but I'm a huge believer in word of mouth marketing, and for praising a company where praise is deserved. On Mother's Day, my family and I went to River Riders (Harper's Ferry) for the day to do zip lines and an aerial adventure park. We had a great time. A few days after our... More

We did zip lining and kayaking and it was amazing. Our guides, ash and Melissa were great. Everyone at river riders made sure we had the best experience possible. I can't wait to go back!

The American Conservation Film Festival is very grateful to River Riders for donating a rafting trip for 6 people to our spring fundraiser party. The winners of this auction item were thrilled and the ACFF greatly benefitted, as well. Thank you, River Riders, for being a generous supporter of community organizations!

We bought the annual pass to the aerial adventure park and it was a great investment for each family member! River Riders also supports the community; they generously donated passes for our school fundraiser which were a huge hit! Thank you so much River Riders for your support and for bringing families together in the trees and the water!

Forget the naysayers, this place is AWESOME!! The tour guides - Frederick, Jason and Steve - were so great!!! They gave us the history of the surroundings and made safety a number one priority. We did the whitewater rafting and zip line canopy tour combo and had the BEST time!!!

I am a little afraid of heights and had agreed to go zip lining to check it off a friend's bucket list. Steve, Jason, and Rico could not have been more delightful. They were fun and yet very professional. The best part was how they made the tour a personal experience for all. I'm a speed demon. They told us... More

Each year River Riders generously donates a gift certificate for 2 people to experience the wonderful area of Harpers Ferry from the river. It is a popular donation and attracts a lot of attention. We are very appreciative of the donation year after year!

We contacted the River Riders folks on short notice to see if they could put together a zipline canopy tour for our family the next morning. They were very accommodating and promptly arranged things for us. Guides Ash and Steve were great! Not only did we feel safe in their hands (I was with my wife and 10 and 13... More

Every year we take a flat water tubing trip with River Riders and it is a great time! They are also very generous in their support of our local elementary school as well. Mayo Elementary school is very appreciative of your generosity and we can't wait to come back this summer!
