Ziplines or Adventure Park

on Tuesday, 13 August 2013. Posted in Adventure Parks

Asheville NC is all about the great outdoors. What better way to experience it than a visit to the Adventure Center of Asheville NC? There are many fabulous activities at both the Treetops Adventure and Zipline Canopy sections of the park. However, every activity may not be suitable for every visitor. Let’s break down each area and see the advantages of each.

Asheville Treetops Adventure Park

This section is all about hiking and climbing. It offers different levels of challenges for ages seven and up. Technologically state-of-the-art, the park trails wind through the beautiful trees and the lofty poles strategically placed around the area. Guests are required to stay attached to the safety harness throughout their adventure.

Broken down into color-coded trails, this NC park is perfect for outdoor lovers to test their strength and agility. With various elements involved in each trail, Treetops is definitely for the physically fit. Each trail has approximately 15 features. Challenges increase with each color trail. The differences include:

Green-Children between the ages of seven and 14 must be accompanied by an adult on their first trip, and are monitored thereafter. This trail averages a height of 13.5 feet above ground. Crossings are fairly stable and lack a great deal of movement. This is perfect for novices.

Yellow-Sub-divided into two sections, these intermediate trails are situated much higher in the trees. They are made up of many more physical elements. There is more climbing involved at this level. Platforms that move provide additional challenges. At the yellow level, children must either be escorted or monitored depending on their age. This level has some zipline features, as well as sport aspects like hang gliding and kayaking.

Red-Only those age 13 and up can attempt this trail which is an extremely physically challenging adventure. Guests soar almost 60 feet above the ground on ziplines. Trees and platforms sway as participants make their way through the trail. Participants are even challenged with a snowboard zipline, hula hoops and bottomless bridge. Finally, the only way back to the ground is by repelling down from the trees.

Asheville Zipline Canopy Adventures

Zip line adventures, while absolutely exhilarating, are nowhere near as physically challenging. Opportunities to zip line are numerous in NC. What makes ours unique is the location. Participants may enjoy the thrill of zipping through the forest-like environment, and enjoying magnificent views of the Asheville NC skyline. Even mountain views are yours during this exhilarating adventure.

All guests must first attend the park’s ground school. Once completed, guests begin their zip line adventure. Gradually attempting zip lines at higher altitudes and longer lengths, guests can go through the any of the ten zip line routes available. Ranging from several hundred to over 1100 feet in length, Asheville Zipline Canopy Adventures are great fun for ages 10 and up.

Visitors should be aware that there are weight limitations for center guests. Whether living in the NC area or just visiting, the Adventure Center of Asheville NC is the place for incredible challenges and heart-stopping fun. Don't miss it!
