Quick Jump: The ultimate adrenaline rush at The Adventure Center of Asheville that is unprecedented in the Asheville area. After gearing up in a full body harness and reaching the pinnacle of the 65-foot Jinga Canopy Tower, prepare to take that big step for an intense rush. Free fall 15 feet before the “Quick Jump” device gradually slows you down and lowers you the remaining distance. This heart pounding adventure is memorable but quick, so plan to try it twice. Two Quick Jumps are available side by side, so find a friend, spouse, sibling or child to scream your lungs out with!
