Asheville, North Carolina is known for its beautiful and vibrant downtown accented by beautiful outdoor surroundings. Now you can experience all this in one spot with Asheville Zipline Canopy Adventures at the Adventure Center of Asheville!
This adventure within the city limits is just one half mile from the heart of downtown. Each tours start with full instruction and orientation. A design of progressively increasing heights and lengths allows “flyers” the opportunity to build confidence before experiencing the big heights and longer lines.
The region’s first Urban Canopy Adventure
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, “flyers” will see scenic mountain views and be flying through tree-lined corridors as well as enjoy spectacular views of the Asheville skyline. The course is adjacent to the Crowne Plaza Resort on 125 acres. After ground school you’ll gain elevation to start the canopy adventure that includes 11 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 30 miles per hour.
