Asheville Zip-line Canopy Adventures Reviews & Ratings
My first time on a zipline and I loved it! I was especially impressed by the safety standards at the Adventure Center. They took time for a training session to ensure all participants could demonstrate basic skills. ANY time a participation was up high, he/she was securely tethered by at least one (usually more) line to a strong cable. But our guides weren’t all business. Their jokes, stories, and little dance/demonstrations added greatly to the super fun experience. So go, zip, laugh and know you are in very safe hands.
Took my girlfriend here for her birthday, and we loved it! First time here and we'll be back for sure! Staff were so friendly, funny and charismatic! I would highly recommend to anyone for a great fun way to Zipline and see Asheville from new heights!
The folks at the Adventure Center outdid themselves! They went over and beyond to accommodate our reservation as we came all the way up from Charleston with a small baby. The staff is very outgoing and professional. Thank you so much for providing us with such a great experience climbing the trees! - Tatiana, Paul, and little Timothy
Great experience for groups, either family or company groups on a retreat. This was my 1st time. And some parts were harder then I thought but I got through it. They have levels of course (easy-difficult) you can take kids too! My daughter is 13 and can go on the bigger zipline. A fun experience!! I would definitely recommend! (They even do "Amazing Race" type set ups for larger groups .
We take campers there every year for the ropes courses. The staff is friendly and they have different levels of courses for kids and adults. It's also very convenient to Asheville so location wise it's better than other spots.
