Asheville’s Destination for Family-Friendly Fun

Coming this October, The Adventure Center is hosting the family-friendly Haunted Trail
The no-touch no-contact outdoor Haunted Trail is the only Halloween event in Asheville that is ideal for children ages 3-12 years old. Experience a family-friendly heart pumping walk with live actors (at a distance), spooky sounds, and spectacular props. The younger ghouls can enjoy the (actor-free) “Sweet Peek Tour” of the Trail at 6:30pm before it gets dark. 
This year The Treetops Adventure Park Aerial Glow Trail will also be available for ages 4 and over. Climb on one family-friendly aerial trail while it is illuminated with thousands of colored twinkle and laser lights. 
In addition to the Trails, there will also be spooky live entertainment, no touch activities while in line, and food and beverages available including hot chocolate.  It is a perfect way to celebrate the Halloween season with the family.

Private Zipline Tours

This fall, our urban zipline canopy tours are available for private trips with two options.  The Full Tour is a trip with 11 ziplines and 3 sky bridges in treetop platforms on several large adventure towers with mountain and skyline views of Asheville. It includes the Skyline zip where you fly side-by-side with a friend for 1,200 feet. The three sky bridges are opportunities to slow down and look around in our largest trees to learn about the history of the city and the trees.  Our Express Tour is just a shorter version with 7 ziplines and 1 skybridge. Currently, we are booking up to 8 people on each of our canopy tour trip times.  However, if you would like a private tour, let us know.  Private tours are a great way to celebrate with friends or family or to offer more social distancing with other guests.
Reservations are suggested as we have scheduled trip times.  For private tours, they can be made at 828.225.2921 or at 877.247.5539.
