4. Aerial Adventures Open

We’ve been open all winter, and some adventurous souls have joined us for adventure getaways in the cold. But soon, all that will be over, which means Gravity Ziplines, TreeTops Zipline Canopy Tour and TimberTrek Adventure Park are about begin 2019 operations in a flash of speed and excitement. TimberTrek Adventure Park adds a new course, which lowers the minimum age to 4 on a challenging whirlwind tour of the canopy covering 4 acres of woodland with 60 platforms, bridges, and ziplines.  With speed, adrenaline, and side-by-side racing, this high-flying adventure, Gravity Ziplines will not disappoint.

3. April 1: Big Spring Whitewater on the New River

It doesn’t get much more adventurous than whitewater rafting on the Lower New River when snowmelt and seasonal rains inflate it to absurd levels.  The waves get gigantic, the hits get massive, and the thrills keep coming. It’s hard to describe that feeling of floating into the Keeneys or Double Z at 16,000…20,000…30,000 cubic feet per second. This is the main attraction of spring, so paddle hard for glory.

2. The Fire and Ice Festival on April 27

This is the best of several worlds wrapped into one amazing festival of spring. When you’re done rafting the big-wave Lower New River at it’s seasonal vertex of gigantic post-winter waves, hang out and enjoy the spectacle of ice carvings, including a 12′ ice tower set ablaze. You won’t want to miss this.

Have members of your group too young for rafting, no problem. We invite you come see ice carvings and fire throwers free of charge. Bring the kids—it’s family friendly.
