We've been there about 4 years ago. We had a delightful experience. So when it was time to go again, we did not consider anyone else. FBRZ. Plus we wanted to do a Zipline. This past year FBR became FBRZ after purchasing 27 acres with beautiful views and installing 10 lines and two repels.

The crew at FBRZ is fantastic group. They have fun and they make sure you have fun, but they are professionals. They are concerned about and make sure you are safe at all times.

We did the 9 mile raft trip which is very scenic. It has a few class II and III and one Class IV. All very manageable for those that are new to rafting. The trip is for those that just want to enjoy the scenery and have some fun, forget about the office.

Then the following day the zipline. This was a new experience for us. I was there to enjoy the zipping through the air, but I was amazed and very pleased with the focus on safety and making sure that at no time was anyone in any danger. FUN FUN FUN zipping through the air. The 2 hours was over too quickly! Will have to do this again.

If you have not been on a raft or zip trip, then Mike, Tim, Ed, Marti, Colleen, and Jeff (and everyone else) are looking forward to seeing you.

Leaves are just beginning to change. So if you are thinking fall colors. Schedule a trip today.

We went out with my kids and mom and had a blast. Kudos to Justin and April for such a fun time. The lines are not as high as Navitat, but the whole experience was better for us, geared more toward the group and relaxed. Gorgeous views from the trees. Thanks! We will be back.

What a treat. Wonderful adventure on a sparkling day. Group was made up of a variety of folks--retirees on a guys day out, young family of four, a couple--and we all had a fantastic experience running the ziplines on a cool sunny day. Instructors Coleen and Justin did a great job of making sure we were safe and comfortable and having fun. Highly recommended for a different day out in the woods. Close to Asheville in a very pretty area.
