Asheville Zipline Canopy Adventures- Asheville, NC
What makes this course different from our and other courses in the region is this is the region's first urban canopy adventure. Just minutes from downtown Asheville, "flyers" will see scenic mountain views and be flying through tree-lined corridors as well as enjoy spectacular views of the Asheville skyline. After ground school you'll gain elevation to start the canopy adventure that includes 10 zipline sections, nine treetop platforms, three adventure tower platforms, three sky bridges, and ziplines from several hundred feet long to almost 1200 feet long. You'll reach heights of more than 70 feet and speeds of about 35 or 40 miles per hour.
Asheville Treetops Adventure Park- Asheville, NC
Asheville Treetops Adventure Park will include approximately 50 unique climbing, zipping, walking, jumping, swinging, and rappelling challenges anchored to over 30 trees and towering poles tucked in the wooded park. Park Guests will have the choice to challenge the trails they feel comfortable with at their own pace and move around the park individually instead of in a group like the canopy tour experience. Think of it as ski slopes in the trees and a true “Jungle Gym” for all ages, strengths, and adventure levels. This is made possible by new technology called “smart belays” that are designed to assure Park Guests are attached to safety systems at all times and can not 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.
