The line to enter the Winter Wonder Walk surrounds the game field. Kids can pop out of line to participate in contests and play Asheville Plays Kid-Sized Games. And join in the largest snow ball gith ever.

The AERIAL GLOW TRAIL at The Treetops Adventure Park is also available for guests 4 years or older! Climb on two of our aerial trails while they are illuminated with thousands of colorful twinkle and laser lights.  Purchase of a combo pass is required to climb on the Glow Trail.
