Asheville, North Carolina is known for its beautiful and vibrant downtown accented by the beautiful outdoor surroundings. Now you can experience all this in one spot with Asheville Zipline Canopy Adventures!
This new adventure within the city limits is just one mile from the heart of downtown. Adventure America Zipline Canopy Tours introduces our fifth zipline canopy adventure. The Asheville course is similar to our other locations with a design of progressively increasing heights and lengths. This allows “flyers” the opportunity to build confidence before experiencing the big heights and longer lines.
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 1200 feet long. You’ll reach heights of more than 70 feet and speeds of about 35 miles per hour. An additional zipline was added for 2014.
Closed toed shoes required. Harness seats will wrap around your upper thigh, shoulders and waist so shirts and pants should cover modestly. Long hair must be tied back and secured; please leave your cell phones in your car.
All flyers must be in reasonably good physical condition. Chronic back or shoulder injuries should consult a physician. No hard or soft casts.
