Details

  • Approximately 3-3.5 hours depending on water levels for both activities

Start the day by soaring through the air on our 840 feet long zipline, the LONGEST in the Harpers Ferry area. Participants get two turns and will love every minute of this aerial adventure. Afterwards, cool off on a Potomac river whitewater tubing trip, perfect for those looking for more action. Class II-III waves and ripples will splash and thrill you as you float down one of the most scenic stretches of river on the Potomac watergap.  Tubers drifting by historic Harpers Ferry National Park have a spectacular view of Maryland Heights and the confluence of two rivers and three states (Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia).

No coolers or alcohol are allowed on this trip, save the bottle fun for after the run and visit an area pub in the Harpers Ferry area or Bloomery Plantation Distillery.  

You must weigh between 50-275 lbs.

Price includes

2 turns on the zipline, comfortable tube, lifevest, and shuttle transportation
