A Day Trip with Kids to Downtown Asheville – By: Meg James

A Day Trip with Kids to Downtown Asheville – By: Meg James

There are tons of options when it comes to exploring Asheville with kids, so we chose activities first that we knew our kids would love knowing that we could come back frequently and explore it all over time. Our first stop was at The Adventure Center of Asheville, located only five minutes from downtown. This adventure park’s offerings felt like the sky was the limit, and we started with KidZip, a children’s zip lining park.

My 9 year old enjoyed Kolo bike park camp last week - and he is back this week with his 13 year old sister enjoying... Adventure Camp. They are having a blast a rating it a “13” on a scale of 1-10. And kids are honest! Great staff. Safe and social distance friendly. Get outdoors and live life!read more

Our family came to the Asheville area from Virginia for a long weekend in an effort to change up our scenery and give... our kids something to look forward to because we had been under our stay-at-home order since mid-March. We decided to do the ziplining tour at Asheville Adventure Center because it gave us a chance to do something as a family outside and it was an activity the kids were really excited about. The folks at Asheville Adventure Center were amazing. Very friendly, with a great customer service attitude. We had our safety training with Jeff, whom I think is the owner, and our ziplining guides were Brandon and Donovan. They were terrific. Very low stress, but also very focused on safety and procedure. We had a very nice time talking with them over the two hours and we can't say enough about how much they added to our enjoyment of the experience. During the ziplining, we all had to wear facemasks because it was not possible to always stay six feet apart during time on the tree platforms but it was not too much of a bother and it actually ended up keeping my face warm because it was cool and breezy up in the trees. We highly recommend this company and will come back to do another activity with them the next time we come to Asheville!read more

My first time on a zipline and I loved it! I was especially impressed by the safety standards at the Adventure Center.... They took time for a training session to ensure all participants could demonstrate basic skills. ANY time a participation was up high, he/she was securely tethered by at least one (usually more) line to a strong cable. But our guides weren’t all business. Their jokes, stories, and little dance/demonstrations added greatly to the super fun experience. So go, zip, laugh and know you are in very safe hands.read more

Loved that all the kids could participate and could be fairly independent (our group had ages 5-9). Also challenging... enough for the more experienced adults in the group.read more

Great experience for groups, either family or company groups on a retreat. This was my 1st time. And some parts were... harder then I thought but I got through it. They have levels of course (easy-difficult) you can take kids too! My daughter is 13 and can go on the bigger zipline. A fun experience!! I would definitely recommend! (They even do "Amazing Race" type set ups for larger groups .read more
