Things to do for Active Kids
Where are we going today?
Feeling adventurous? Then get down to ZipQuest in North Carolina for some fun out in nature!
ZipQuest is a great way to spend time with the family, explore nature AND stay fit and healthy! They give families with kids over 8 years a chance to experience the thrilling zipline and canopy tours that they have set up in one of the states great natural treasures - Carver's Falls!
During your time on the zipline tour, there's no need to worry! The staff are well-trained and will happily take you on your aerial adventure, where your feet won't touch the ground for over 2 hours! You'll be too busy zipping your way between unique tree platforms to worry about not looking down. Indiana Jones might want to watch out!
During your experience, you will encounter 8 ziplines (yep - 8!), traverse across 3 bridges and even experince a waterfall. Sounds pretty amazing!
Those brave adventurers in the family might want to challenge themselves on the NightQuest zipline tours, where the fun starts at dusk! Just turn those headlights on and make your way through century old-trees and noisy wildlife.
Kids might want to get their adrenaline pumping with the Swing Shot instead - where you are sent flying SEVEN stories high! Ever wanted to feel like a bird? Now is your chance!
So why not try something different, and see North Carolina from new heights (literally!) and see who the bravest family member of all is (kids - we think it will be YOU!)

Of all the outdoor activities available in the greater Sandhills area, this is without exception the best. The grounds are beautiful, the facilities are immaculate, and the staff are among some of the most professional I have experienced ANYWHERE. I cannot recommend ZipQuest strongly enough - truly Fayetteville's hidden gem. Do not miss it!

My daughter and I just completed the zip line tour. It was a unique experience, especially for something here in Fayetteville. The staff are friendly and have knowledge about the terrain and nature.
When booking your tour give yourself some extra time because this is a long tour and some times tours run over. Overall I think it's an experience worth checking out.

Loved it! The guides Leo and Randy were awesome and made the experience that much better! The course was beautiful and the zip lining was top notch. Rest of the staff I dealt with were good too. The picture package was only $7 and we got a ton of pictures of us and the scenery. For that price you'd be cheating yourself out of some great memories not to get it! Great experience all around.

GO HERE! We did the night quest and it was absolutely fantastic! The suspension bridges are scary!!! The whole thing is a lot of fun and definitely more fun with more people. We had 6 in our group and everyone came home pleased. Gorgeous views - even in the dark. I highly recommend getting out here to experience this at least one time. :o)
