Excellent experience! Group of kids did the zip line tour and had an absolute blast. The guides Logan and Caden were excellent! So fun and everyone felt very safe and comfortable because of them.

We went white water tubing here with a party of 10 people and had blast. The initial bus ride to the drop off point was a bit long but they sent us in right away. The entire trip down stream took about 2 hours. The water level is a bit low and towards the end the water does get fairly shallow and you need to be careful with the slipper rocks. The white water wasn’t intense at all with it maybe passing as a category 1 not the 3-4 as noted but that was also due to the low water levels. Definitely pack sunscreen and water shoes and you’ll have a great time

This adventure center is very well organized and safe. Loved it.Just make sure before coming for water activities you are wearing proper shoes and you have phone and wallet bags that can be attached to you at all time. Don't lose your stuff in the water...

I normally do not write reviews but A group of us went for my boyfriend’s 29th birthday and had a blast. Bella and Kayden were the absolute best Zipline instructors. They were fun, personable and informative with our instructions. We did the Zipline/White water Tubing package and enjoyed the whole day. The facilities were clean, friendly staff, and the team were very accommodating to our requests even when they didnt have to. Definitely want to come back!

Such a great and full day for our family! Would highly recommend! We did ropes course and rafting. Patrick was awesome with the ropes! He was helpful and so patient. My 10 year old was not feeling the 3rd level fall-but really wanted to do it. Patrick really encouraged him in the best way to jump to it! We had a break in between and the Harpers Ferry Brewery next door was an added bonus we could walk to easily (we went back after too). We ended the day rafting with Liam as our guide. What an experience! He was very friendly, funny and confident on the water. He went out of his way for us to get the most out of the rafting experience. Such a great day-we all really enjoyed ourselves.
