I would like to thank River Riders for making a donation of 2 standard tubing passes to the Northfield Elementary PTA silent auction. We had a great time tubing and we would definitely return. It took us about an hour to float down the river. Very relaxing. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I recommend reserving tickets online as... More

So many fun outdoor adventures to choose from. Have been tubing in the past, had a great experience. Just went ziplining with my husband and well definitely be back! Jason and Steve our instructors were professional and informative but they're playful personalities really made our experience even better.

Office seemed disorganized. Was hard to get a straight answer who we were riding with to the river, when we were leaving, etc. Also, we waited in the office and nobody told us the safety breifing was starting outside. The Potomac Play Pass was also not advertised online, as the website highlights the fact you can try all the different... More

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
