9th Annual Haunted Trail Presented By Mellow Mushroom

is located right in the heart of Asheville! We are scaring up fun at The Adventure Center of Asheville. The no-touch no-contact outdoor Haunted Trail is the only Halloween event in Asheville that is ideal for children ages 3-12 years old. Experience a family-friendly heart pumping walk with live actors, spooky sounds, and spectacular props. The younger ghouls can enjoy the (actor-free) “Sweet Peek Tour” of the Trail at 6:30pm before it gets dark. 

Playing Safe

We hope that the fall of 2021 will return to some normalcy, but we will be prepared to continue to play it safe regarding Covid-19 if need be. The Haunted Trail and The Adventure Center are committed to safety, social distancing and wearing face masks (for ages 4 years old and over). The Haunted Trail scenes always have barriers between guests and the performers. Participants will be asked to sign a waiver online or before entering the trail.

Aerial Glow Trail

The Treetops Adventure Park Aerial Glow Trail will be available for ages 4 and over. Climb on one trail while it is illuminated with thousands of colored twinkle and laser lights. Secure a limited spot on the Aerial Glow Trail by buying a Haunted Trail/Aerial Glow Trail Combo Pass.

What People Say

“We went with a group of adults and one kid. No one was disappointed! The trail was less scary than some, but my 4 year old loved it, and so did we, so it was well done to satisfy all. Food, beverages for all ages, fun games. Worth it.”
