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 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 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

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 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 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 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
