|Happy Thanksgiving from the ACA Team!|
What a great year we have enjoyed at the Adventure Center of Asheville so far. After a very slow 2020 and a crazy busy 2021, we enjoyed a return to normal schedules and activity in 2022. We are so thankful for our leadership team at ACA who put together a great crew of Zipline Guides and Treetops Adventure Park/KidZip Rangers, Mountain Bike Coaches and Trail Builders, Camp Counselors and After School Mountain Bike Instructors and an awesome office team at our Welcome Center. We are also so grateful for our guests who came to visit us from dozens of states across the country and countries from around the world. As we move into the Holiday Season, we are very thankful that we can continue to celebrate what we live for all year long, which is families coming together to create new memories.
Be sure to check out our Holiday Events and hours. We are open extra days for Thanksgiving week and Christmas week. We offer two Twilight in the Treetops Night Climbs. And if you are looking for a fun Holiday Festival, check out our Winter Wonder Walk in December. We are a great way to get your kids and extended family out of house this season!
Whether you include our awesome adventure experiences at ACA or create other memories with families or friends, we are grateful to have been a small part of many memory making adventures this year.
|Holiday Twilight in the Treetops, November 26 & December 30|
Join us November 26 and December 30 for our Twilight in the Treetops night climbs.

Then, as the sun starts to set, the aerial challenges become illuminated with over 15,000 colored twinkle and laser lights. Five of the Adventure Park’s aerial trails become illuminated with all their leaves, cables, ropes and platforms.|
