This was my first experience zip-lining and it was a perfect choice for me, and other novices.

Thank you so much for your visit and feedback to help others decide to get up in the air. Although we find first timers and experienced zippers have loved their experience at The ACA, we are always excited to introduce people to the exhilarating sport of ziplining. It's great you noticed how secure you are with our equipment and training.... More

We did the shorter zip- had a great time, our guides were funny and patient. They gave a great how-to course before we started zipping. Beautiful views- highly recommend.

Thanks for your feedback. The Express Tour was new for 2016 and people loved it. They appreciated the opportunity, only offered at ACA, to experience a "sampler" ziplining experience. Thanks for the Ranger shout out. We look forward to seeing you again on one of our full tours. More

We zip line fairly regularly in Western North Carolina. We might not have tried this urban gem if a friend hadn't given us a gift card. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this experience to others new to zip lining. If you have never zip lined and have anxiety thinking about such a prospect, this is the perfect tour... More

I brought my friend who is TERRIFIED of heights. The two guides who worked with us were extremely patient and encouraging to her. Through all of the nervous shakes and tears, she was able to overcome a fear and actually have a ton of fun! I'm very impressed with the friendliness and encouragement demonstrated from their staff.

This was a great end of summer activity for two active, though older (58) parents and their 16 year old daughter on a beautiful Labor Day holiday.

Both the Instructors were very professional and fun! They took safety seriously and they kept everyone focused. My son and I had a great time and highly recommend this to most folks. Our only wish would have been to run the longest zip lines but we will do that the next time we visit!

They give a mini zipline class before they go up high which I thought was great because my daughter has never ziplined before this. They have 2 instructors with each group, one goes first, the second goes last. She took the 2 hour adventure which was enough for her and the price was good.

Sooo much more than we expected! We had a 7 and 9-year-old who were not sure they wanted to participate, but once they got started they wouldn't stop. Nine continuous zip lines with exciting climbing and whizzing through trees. Amazing fun time they keep talking about.

We had a large group of kids, teens, and parents. The guides were patient and helpful throughout the adventure. Safety was never a concern. The ziplines varied in length and speed and the guides showed us some different techniques throughout the course. The only drawback is that the ziplines do not go over a particularly scenic area. FYI, you can... More

Great tips and insights into your zipping adventure in Asheville. Although it is true our Asheville location is not one of our wilderness experiences we do have other locations that fly over rivers, waterfalls, along lakes, and deep in the woods. This zipline is great, though, for convenience and to highlight views of the historic Asheville skyline and surrounding mountains.... More
