My wife and I had a blast on the zip lines. Our instructors, Jordan and Trent, were awesome and a ton of fun! It’s... always refreshing to be around people who work great together and truly enjoy where they work. I would highly recommend booking the Asheville Zipline Adventure. If at all possible, I would recommend these two take you around because they will make sure you have fun the entire time. Jordan was also super helpful in recommending restaurants and other activities while we were visiting Asheville from central Pennsylvania.read more
I HIGHLY recommend this place!! This past summer we did the white water rafting and zip lining combo. This package... included Lunch. I was expected a hot dog, or mediocre burger, nope, this lunch was amazing!!! I would go there for the lunch alone! The staff was great! I loved everything about our experience. If we ever travel back that way... I will do it again!!!read more
Did the tree top adventure. Really had a fun time. Everyone in my group enjoyed it (and many talked about coming back).... Their smart safety system makes you feel quite secure. They have a variety of trials with a wide range of difficulty from super easy for kids (purple) up to so hard it’ll leave you exhausted and sore for days (black).read more
If you want a quick outdoor adventure and you do not want to drive too far from Asheville, the Adventure Center might... be perfect for you. I have done both the treetop and the zip lining experiences, and found the staff to be friendly and attentive.read more
We had a great time! We took a group of corporate customers as part of an educational retreat. The location was... perfect-just a few minutes from the downtown hotels. The trip was run very smoothly from start to finish. Our two guides, West and Trent were perfect hosts and took our folks from nervous first time zippers to cannonballing high adventure heroes in no time at all! My very favorite part of the whole trip was when our most nervous participant smiled from ear-to-ear coming into the last platform! She was so proud of herself for conquering her fear and having fun while doing it. Highly recommend!read more
Always feels safe and easy. I’ve worked with their group sales rep multiple times who always does a great job guiding... me through showing friends and family what my town is about. My kids love testing their limits there, and I feel confident about them doing so here.read more
I chaperoned a group of 25 high school freshmen on a recent trip and they all had a marvelous time. The students most... enjoyed the teambuilding we did in the morning part of our session and found the facilitators engaging and attentive. Students also felt empowered to challenged themselves on the ropes course in the afternoon; even students who had vehemently claimed they wouldn't do it still tried at least one level. The more experienced students also delighted in the variety of obstacles and challenges awaiting them. I would definitely take a group here again.read more
My girlfriend and I did a few different obstacle courses in the trees. We had a LOT of fun! If you enjoy a challenge... and pushing yourself this is a great activity. Unless you are afraid of heights.read more
Took our (just turned) 8 year old today to the kid zip area and we had a great time! Reasonably priced and the staff... was very friendly. Small enough where our son wasn't too scared to get started but big enough to still challenge him to conquer some of his fears. Needless to say, by the end he was ziplining and letting go to put his hands out. There were other areas of the park we will definitely try next time we come to Asheville. Highly recommend!read more
We had a blast on the Treetops Adventure Course! Our group of five ranged in age from 7 to 37 and everyone was able to... find a course to suit their level of adventure and ability. The rangers are helpful from the ground when needed.read more
Had a blast did the ropes course and the Zipline tour. Callie and Catherine are awesome Zipline guides. They did a... great job of making sure everyone knew what they needed to do and made it fun.read more
Loved this place so much! We decided to go zip lining and we were NOT disappointed. The full tour was well worth it and... the fun and entertaining staff made it a blast! We had a great time out there and will happily return soon!read more
Best.trip.ever!! Brandon and West were AMAZING guides and made the whole thing so much more fun! I am terrified of... heights but they both made sure throughout the entire trip that I, and the others, felt comfortable and were enjoying it! I would do this again without hesitation. Thank you, guys!!!read more
It's the perfect place solo, or with the whole family. There's a little something for everybody and so close to... downtown. If you didn't know it was there, you would miss it. A great little gem just on the outskirts of town.read more
Our family went to visit Kid Zip in Asheville and we had a blast. I ended up getting the season pass for a year because... the kids loved it so much. We've also experienced the TreeTops adventure park. The obstacles also a lot of fun for kids and adults. Good times! Go visit them!read more
I brought a group of high school seniors who all found some thing at the right level of challenge for themselves. They... loved zip lining, Climbing, and some of the creative thinking needed to complete the courses. The adventure center was also very accommodating for students who wanted to remain on the ground, and they were able to add a few tickets to our group at the last minute. Great service. Very fun.read more
Scheduling our group was easy with Sarah! We needed to make changes and her grace, comfort and professionalism were... high! We all (15 kids/parents) loved our experience! The rangers are funny, knowledgeable and helpful! All the kids left saying they want their next day party there!!! Thanks to an extensive and amazing staff!!!read more
We went on the Treetop Adventure and did the big obstacle course on the trees. It was great fun! Highly recommended if... you enjoy climbing, obstacle course, and you're not too afraid of heights.read more
Our zip lining guides Donovan and Doug were outstanding! They were funny, watched us and gave helpful pointers and... taught us about the local trees. They also recommended a wonderful local place to eat! These two made our experience that much more enjoyable!read more
Such an entertaining place!! Had a great time. The courses are challenging but doable and that’s what keeps it fun. The... only two downsides in my opinion were that 1. It only lasts 2 hours and starts from when you watch a video and do the whole harness thing, so you lose time to actually be up on the trees and 2. I’ve been to other adventure parks and they sell/rent gloves because the courses have elements where you need to hold onto a rope or cable. I asked for them but they don’t sell/rent or even suggest you to bring your own. My hands were really hurting afterwards. Anyways, I’d recommend it!!read more
My teen children and I did the zip lining with Donovan and Brandon this week. What great fun! I was very nervous but... our guides helped me gain confidence safely and they were so supportive and funny. We were only in town for a few days so when another zip line company cancelled our reservation due to inclement weather, we were thrilled and relieved to be able to come to Adventure Center of Asheville. Thanks for staying open and showing us a great time! Also loved the Covid safety protocols in place.read more
What a great place for a birthday party. My 8 year old son had a blast. Great place for a family outing, or good place... to challenge your friends on the hardest courses. Looking forward to going back.read more
Our group was staying downtown and this place was super close. There were several guys who had never done any zipline... stuff before, but the staff was so helpful and friendly. If we had more time we would have rented some bikes for the bike park. Just a great place to play and feel like a kid again.read more
Our group of 8 had an amazing time on the Zipline adventure. Our guides Marz and Donovan were great. They were... extremely knowledgeable and eased some of our groups anxiety before beginning. They start you on some smaller lines before moving on to the bigger and better ones. They are also hilarious and had some killer one liners, they are sure to make you laugh. We had a great time and would definitely do it again. If you're apprehensive at all about doing this don't be, by the end, our most apprehensive person was just as eager as everyone else to get to zipping!!!read more
A lot of fun for the whole family. The price for the adventure was cheap compared to other parks we've been to and the... instructors were great. Hated having to wear a mask though which took away from the fun. Every time my mask would slip off slightly I was scolded but I guess that's where were at right now. All in all it was well worth it. Side note:Asheville has changed folks. Don't go downtown unless you're wearing a mask, even outside. The hippies run the show and will cuss you out for walking outside without one. I will NEVER go to downtown Asheville againread more
Spent the day here and loved every minute! The ziplining was amazing, and our guides Brandon and Marz made every second... enjoyable. I want to come back again and hopefully zip with those guides! You hand break here, instead of the automatic, which I actually prefer because I feel I have more control. The guides signal you when you need to break, and whether to break harder or softer. Loved every moment!read more
We decided to do the kids zipline course with our 8 year old son and 6 year old daughter and it was the best family... activity we have done. The kids enjoyed the course so much they did it 4 times. The guides and instructors were great and we are planning to come back to do the obstacle course. I would highly recommend this as a family activity.read more
We did a zip line tour yesterday for my husband’s birthday trip. Our guides, Brandon and Donovan were fantastic! They... were fun and engaging. This was my first time zip lining. I’m not great with heights and they put me at ease. Thank you for a great time! HIGHLY recommend.read more
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
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
If you have a dirt jump bike there's a small section that's worth going to the rest of this if you're coming here for x... cedar mountain bike and I woildl go somewhere else.There's a zip line thing here that's probably pretty cool but I didn't go on that. But that's a separate entity but the bike parks in the same place this review is for the bike park. I feel they're going to charge us all to come here they should at least maintain the trailer so they're nice and smooth. If it was free I wouldn't even complainread more
Kolo bike camp is top notch~ The first day my son asked if he could attend another week this summer! Thanks for the... lessons learned throughout the week and a tired boy at the end of the day! Success.read more
I’ve gone to this place once every few months for the past two years. It is the best place to go for progression... without the pedaling. It closer than any real fun trail system to ride. Has endless features to session and a staff that is always kind and welcoming. My wife and I got jumping tips from one of the kids at their camp the other month and now we are starting to clear table tops!!!! They just have every increment of progression and everything is tucked away and separated enough that you aren’t constantly being watched by everyone while you are attempting to send but also close enough that if you fall and yell there is a better chance some one would hear you. Just spend your money here please and help make it even better. They’ve been putting in serious work.read more
We made our reservations thru the 1800 number. This was our first time zipping. The staff easily accommodated all... levels of skill and comfort zones. Safety was clearly paramount. Our group was large - 3 kids and 3 adults (age 7 to 60) They have zipping to fit all. 2 of the group did the kid course, 4 on the Canopy tour. Be aware the canopy tour lasts much longer than the kid side, but you can stay on the kid side as long as you want. Richard and Grant did an amazing job! These guys are professional, respectful. Can't wait to try this again! We had a great time. Worth the cost.read more
The park is awesome! We are just passing through and decided to stop. I am glad we did. They offer zip lining, mountain... biking, and pump tracks. We rented an e-bike and that thing is kool. The kids had a blast as well.read more
Trails were confusing. I tried the beginner one and had to walk most of it. It might have just been me, seeing as I... don't do a lot of mountain biking, but my Dad(who does) said it was confusing as well.read more
So. Much. Fun!my 4.5 year-old was completely psyched the whole time we were there, and I think we only explored maybe... a fifth of the park the first time we went!I think my hubby’s gonna really love it too when he goes later today!Great fun for all ages :-)read more
I had never mountain biked before I came here and was very pleasantly surprised that the trails were manageable for a... complete beginner like me. It was also really nice that some of the trails are intermediate level so as I got more comfortable I could try more difficult trails/tricks. I’ll definitely be back!read more
Short trails with overgrown areas that should be kept up with, but we managed to make the best of the trip. There are... still some nice opportunities to work on skills. The staff in the gift shop were not friendly. The dirt jumps were closed due to rain the morning before, so plan accordingly with weather.read more
They do a jump night during the summers that is fun and well attended. It’s a fun little park. They’ve worked hard on... it. There are lots of little features to work on things like jumping and dropping. They do have a more advanced jump line... but that seems to be it for very advanced features.read more
As locals, we love having a full bike park just 10 minutes from the house--pump tracks, single trails, skill park and... friendly, fantastic staff. Our son goes to camp here all summer, and I ride with him several afternoons a week after work. Definitely consider the annual pass, as the more you know the park, the more you realize it has to offer. UPDATE: PLEASE CONSIDER EXTENDING CAMP NOW THAT SCHOOLS HAVE MOVED TO ONLINE LEARNING! Perhaps two sessions a day to handle the crowds (morning group, afternoon group) or afternoons or... WE WILL SIGN UP! Our children will need more than just outside time with homeschooling, but outside time that builds skills and involves learning.read more
Great bike park with multiple pump tracks, singletrack trails, and kids tracks. One of the few parks we've been to with... bicycle tracks specifically for the little ones. My kids loved it! The whole park is covered in well marked mountain bike tracks and trails divided up by skill level. You can rent bikes or bring your own to ride. Tons of fun for beginners or advanced riders!read more
I brought my son out here to fight boredom and get some exercise and accomplished both. In addition we had a great... deal of fun and met some great people!Upon arrival my son decided to inform me that his brakes weren't working at all. There we were with no tools or ability to continue riding. Luckily an employee at the park named Collin came to the rescue. He had my son's bike stopping better than ever.Great facility. Great people. Great tracks. 3 tons of fun!read more
Great bike park. Lots of options. Have a lot of places for kids/beginners and bigger stuff for the more advanced... riders. Great community events and social media presence. Clean and relaxed environment. 🤙.read more
