The Adventure Center of Asheville is excited to be the 2021 venue for the 9th Annual Haunted Trail presented by Mellow Mushroom. The no-touch no-contact outdoor Haunted Trail is the only Halloween event in Asheville that is ideal for children ages 3-12 years old. Experience a family-friendly heart-pumping walk with live actors, spooky sounds, and spectacular props. It is like walking through live Halloween Theatre. The younger ghouls can enjoy the (actor-free) “Sweet Peek Tour” of the Trail at 6:30pm before it gets dark.
The Treetops Adventure Park Aerial Glow Trail will also be available for kids and adults ages 4 and over. Climb on two of our aerial trails while they are illuminated with thousands of colored twinkle and laser lights.
In addition to the Trails, there will also be spooky live entertainment, family activities, and concessions. It is a perfect way to celebrate the Halloween season with the family.
