This was a lot of fun! Did the rafts with family ages 16-50. Everyone enjoyed it. Teenagers did the kayaking trip as well. Will use them again. Places for picnics.

Our family (2 adults, 2 kids 10 &12) enjoyed a fantastic zip lining tour with Gabriel and Dakota. Although the focus was always on safety, they made the tour exciting and enjoyable for all of us! They were knowledgeable about the area and gave great recommendations of things to include on our trip. It was our first zip lining tour,... More

Get Out and Go Tours took a group on a Shenandoah flatwater float trip in tubes. The trip was fun, and the check-in experience was OK. There is a lot of process involved with water sports, but RiverRiders has a good, technology-based system for handling it. The rider was warm, low, and slow when we floated, and the bus was... More

We celebrated my son's 9th birthday with the great folks at River Riders. Jason and Kels on the Zipline Canopy Tour and Ben on the White Water rafting tour. All three guides were terrific. They know their roles and make safety a priority, but they approach it with a healthy dose of good humor and fun. You can tell they... More

The water level was very low so it was more like s lazy river ride then a white water trip but that was also s good thing. There is a lot of history on the river and our guide was very knowledgable of it. Since it was not a perilous run he took time to tell us all about the... More

We completed one beginner course ("orange") and two intermediate level courses ("green") at the Adventure Park. Those courses were super fun! Afterwards, I expressed some concern to one of the male staff members about my lack of upper body strength before moving on to an advanced course ("blue"). Despite that, the staff member suggested my boyfriend and I try a... More

Our Guide Joey did an excellent job! fun for the entire family 7 to 70! We went as a family starting with a 7year old The course was well maintained and safe. The guides and monitors were pleasant and fun. Safety instruction was given at the beginning and very clear. A good workout at many levels were available.
