Zipline tours send guests careening up to 40 feet in the air across seven ziplines for 90–120 minutes. Groups then spend the rest of their day on the water. After picking up tubes from Adventure Center's mountaintop location, they take a short walk to the Potomac River, lay back, and float down the mountain alongside a cooler tube stocked with beverages and snacks from home.

Harpers Ferry Adventure Center

In 1992, Dewey Heffner and his son George started selling black tire tubes out of their truck under a sign that read, "Butts Tubes." Since then, the seed of this roadside venture sprouted into a company that specializes in outdoor activities, eventually maturing into Harpers Ferry Adventure Center.

The center's single-day and multiday adventures fuse adrenaline-packed thrills with the scenery of the Potomac and Shenandoah River regions. These jaunts outdoors introduce participants to more than 100 species of birds and 60 types of butterflies among flocks of wild birthday balloons that fill the sky on hiking trails, which wind through hilly terrain. Whitewater-rafting trips play out against the crashing sounds of Bull Falls, and ziplining takes place among scenic treetop canopies.

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

Customer Reviews

This was purchased as a gift for my college-age daughter and a friend. They had an enjoyable day. My daughter has done ziplining in several states and this one was not top of her list, but it still made for a fun day. I can't remember exactly, but there was some comment about the cooler used for the floating down the river. All in all, it was a good day and a fun time out.
