The human body, unlike raisins, white wine, and the wit of Oscar Wilde, isn't meant to be dry. Return to a dampened norm with this Groupon.
$82 for a Fall Adventure Day Package (a $170.25 Value)
The Fall Adventure Day includes a half-day of whitewater rafting and a 90–120-minute zipline tour that careens up to 40 feet in the air across seven ziplines. Though admission to the fall festival is not included in this Groupon, it begins September 22 and continues every weekend through October 28, offering games and food to visitors.
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." Through the years, the seed of this roadside tubing company sprouted 11 different outdoor activities and matured into Harpers Ferry Adventure Center.
At HFAC, 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.
