“Great family adventure”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

My son (10 years old) and I did the zip line course in the morning, followed by rafting in the afternoon. GREAT experience. He was hesitant and nervous on the first zip line. By the end, he wanted to go first.
Guides are TERRIFIC. Wish I remembered the name of our (girl with a great sense of humor, and a guy who seemed to be an accomplished rock climber). All of them kept it fun and energetic.
Harpers Ferry is also a great town to visit. Make sure that you save time to check it out.

“Coming back for more!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We booked the Adventure Park ticket and the Canopy tour from a LivingSocial deal. And boy we were glad we did that. We had the one of the most fun-filled experience. It was just awesome. The Adventure Park is so much fun. You got to try it out. Its fun, its thrilling with increasing level of difficulty, its a good workout. We started with the Canary land (for beginners) and ended with Woody Woodland (moderate). Would definitely be back here for the remaining ones. The staff members were excellent and very friendly.This was followed up by the adrenaline rushing zipline canopy tour. We had a blast. Totally worth the money.

I would highly recommend the Adventure Park.

“Zip Zap Zoom!!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I went with my wife for this adventure last evening. It was the first time for both of us. And it was just so much fun. We both had a fantastic time. There are seven ziplines of increasing height and two bridges. It takes about 2-3hrs. We crossed the bridges and did the ziplines in after sunset. Go tandem zipping with your sweetheart or friend . It adds to the thrill. The guides Ash, Joe and Anthony were very enthusiastic, skilled and really funny. The hay-ride to the zip towers is fun too :)
Highly recommended!

“Would go again!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We did the Adventure Park and Canopy Tour. The entire day was beyond awesome! The Adventure Park is ten times more intense than I expected. It's really fun and a major workout! The Ziplining Canopy Tour totally takes your breath away! We ziplined in complete darkness! Imagine climbing towers to dizzying heights, then flying through the trees at terrifying speeds. I was crying and laughing at the same time. Awesome trip!

“Zip Faster- I hear banjo music......”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

A group of four middle aged business collegues had VIP treatment on 11/8/12. The weather was great and we had five highly trained staff members assisting us. A special thanks to Craig, Ash, Michael H., Dan, and Charlie for creating an experience of a lifetime.

I would recommend this trip for business outings, family outings, or simply doing it to overcome fears. Check this place out and you will not be dissapointed.

Thanks Guys- We had a blast.
