Without a doubt this was one of the coolest things I have done! Like the T-shirt I bought, it was "The Best Freakin Day EVER". I drove with a friend up from Southern Maryland , on the Beltway and then into the environs of Frederick County, MD. It is beautiful this time of year (September) and got to see many... More

My friend and I have had season passes this year to the Adventure Park. I wrote an earlier review about that activity. Today, we tried the Canopy Zipline Tour, which was awesome. You board a bus and cross 340 until you reach the campground right along the river. Instead of just having monitors below as they do in the Adventure... More

This was great first time experience for hubby and I. The staff was very friendly and communicated very clearly. They even gave us a call on the day before to confirm and tell us how we should dress and what and what not not bring. Also we had the pleasure of having Anthony and Fred for our Tour Guides, they...

By far River Riders offers the best price around for these activities but a more experienced day/weekend adventurer may be a bit underwhelmed at the offerings. Friendly staff but neither activity course we chose was what I expected - kind of felt that the staff was making the most out of what they had to work with/offer. The zip tours... More

At the end of August, we decided to go to River Riders as our team activity for the Shepherd University Volleyball Team's preseason. We could not have been more pleased with the experience. Cost was beyond reasonable, especially when compared to the experience. The guides were enthusastic, informed, and did an amazing job. We had girls from the ages of... More

That was the comment from the River Riders guide who helped us board our van to return to the RR office after spending 5 hours on what should have been a 2.5 hour "white water tubing" experience. We were told at the office that "there's a little headwind today so you will have to paddle a bit harder but it's... More

We took a white water rafting trip with River Riders a few weekends ago and had a great time. Dennis was our guide and did a great job with steering us through the rapids, telling us some of the history of Harpers Ferry and just making the scenic ride all the more enjoyable. We had several younger kids with us... More

We went ziplining and had an amazing time. Your guides Melissa and Patrick were amazing. They made quite a team. If I go back I'll definitely request them as my tour guides!

Ever expanding-adding a lot of fun activities! The staff are always so nice and friendly, the tubing and adv park is awesome.... Hint: if it's your first time, try to speed everyone's process up and fill out your info on line to avoid having to do it when you are there-especially on a busy day!
