I have heard fantastic reviews from friends regarding their services, so I wanted to seek a donation from them. They were more than happy to donate and were accommodating and helpful throughout...

Our zipline guides Melanie and Calvin were first rate. They made the trip memorable for two first-time zipliners. Beautiful views, and much fun!

We went on a weekday and had not planned anything so were happy they were able to accomodate us for 4 hrs of zip line. Instructors were great and good fun to be with and safety was excellent. It is a bit long, so be ready to do at least 3 hrs while we took 4 and it is not... More

Thank you River Riders for supporting our efforts at this year's Harvest Ball. Your donation of a rafting trip to our silent auction demonstrates your generosity and commitment to community.

regarding the zip line and canopy tour, this is a very fun experience. it can be a little hot mid summer, the best time to do it is in the fall or early summer evenings! they have paw paws everywhere!!!! we tubed as well on the Shenandoah- i prefer the Potomac trip as it is longer.

My husband Kerry & I and another couple Charlene & Dave went rafting this past weekend and were matched with Lexi. She was helpful, informative and a fantastic guide. I had not been rafting in over 20 years. I was a little nervous after watching the safety video. As soon as we were introduced to Lexi, we realized we were... More

We went on Labor Day weekend, but despite the numbers, we were all treated like VIPs. Ages of our group were between 8 and 63 years. The entire staff was great but Jack D. (Old Man River) was a great guide for our trip. He ensured that new and formerly new rafters were safe and had fun. Humorous and informative... More

Enjoyed the zipline and adventure park. Staff was very helpful and informative. The equipment was well taken care of. I felt I was properly trained and wouldn't injure myself. I can't wait to go back in the colder/winter months.

My family and I went to Harpers Ferry for the first time yesterday. We did the River Riders’ Aerial Forest Adventure Park, and the Play Pass for paddle boarding and canoeing. We absolutely loved the Aerial Forest Adventure, and would recommend it to anyone. It is challenging, and a lot of fun. I found the monitor people who were around... More
