Adventure Center of Asheville Opens New Kids Trail on Asheville Treetops Adventure Park


Yesterday, the Adventure Center of Asheville opened its new Purple Trail at the Asheville Treetops Adventure Park. The trail includes 12 elements ranging in height from ground level to eight feet off the ground, just perfect for kids age 4-6. Adventure elements include beam walks, cargo net, a tunnel, plank bridges, cable bridges, and a zip line finish. The purple trail is designed for 4-6-year olds wanting to “warm up” to the idea of climbing on our unique bridges and structures before challenging the Blue and Green trails. It is considered a “junior trail” and utilizes the “SafeRoller” system our 4-6 year old guests use throughout their experience. Adults/parents can walk alongside the trail to encourage, support, and assist their young adventure explorers. Typical use will be combined with use of the Blue and Green trails during a standard adventure park experience. It is included in the regular entry fee. The Asheville Treetops Adventure Park is a challenge course in the trees that has over 60 unique climbing, rolling, walking, jumping, swinging, and rappelling challenges anchored to over 30 trees and towering poles tucked into a wooded park. There are six different adventure trails ranging from beginner to challenging levels. There are several elements that are representative of the activities you can do in North Carolina including a sky kayak, a parkway tunnel, a snowboard in the sky, swinging hula hoops, bumper boats and a zip hang glider, all in the trees that make this a “Truly Asheville Adventure.” We use a new technology called “smart belays” that, when used properly, are designed to assure Park Guests are attached to safety systems at all times and cannot detach from the system until they have completed the aerial trail and are back on the ground. Guests can explore freely knowing the safety system monitors their attachments and is designed to not allow accidental unclipping from the safety points. It is an active adventure that incorporates physical fitness and personal accomplishment. One-hour access Birthday parties are available on the Purple Trail for 4-8 year olds. There are also group rates and Birthday Parties available to use the entire Adventure Park all year long.

This is a great place if you have never zip lined. The guys made it safe and comfortable and lots of fun. Beware the corny jokes.

My son and I went ziplining, we did the short course. Though we were both terrified - it was extremely exhilarating! Brandon and Briggs were awesome instructors, and were also patient with me with each line as I was not able to get the courage to lift my feet to go 😳(I was too scared). Highly recommend visiting!
