In 1992, Dewey Heffner and his son George started selling black tire tubes out of their truck under a sign that read, "Butts Tubes." Through the years, the seed of this roadside tubing company sprouted 11 different outdoor activities and matured into Harpers Ferry Adventure Center.

At Harper's Adventure Center, single- and multiday adventures fuse adrenaline-packed thrills with the scenery of the Potomac and Shenandoah River regions. More than 100 species of birds, 60 types of butterflies, and flocks of wild birthday balloons fill the sky on hiking trails, which wind through hilly terrain. The crashing sound of Bull Falls forms the soundtrack for whitewater-rafting trips, and treetop canopies serve as the decor for ziplining.

Drawing from these activities, Harpers Ferry Adventure Center's crew can design custom adventure packages or help customers to choose a predesigned trip. They also lead team-building retreats using outdoor activities to teach universal skills such as working toward a common goal or ziplining to the stage for business presentations.

When leaves start changing colors and floating on cool autumn breezes, Jumbo's Pumpkin Patch opens its gates to become a flurry of family fall activity. Visitors hop on a hayride that takes them to the 30-acre pumpkin patch, where scores of bulbous gourds lie ripe for the taking. Also accessible by hayride, a sprawling corn maze tests families' navigational skills and/or willingness to eat their way back home. Back at the farm, kids hop on pony rides and mini-wagon rides or try on a new face from a face painter. A petting zoo offers visitors close encounters with friendly farm animals, from rabbits and sheep to pigs and cows. The patch and attractions are located on the grounds of the Huffer Family Farm, which was purchased by the family in 1870. Seven generations later, the Huffers still cultivate the land for crops?when they're not cultivating corn mazes and armies of really nice scarecrows.
