Treetop Adventure Nets
Children as young as three can now explore the skies at NOC! In this fully-netted aerial playground, participants navigate tunnels, slides, and even take control of this ship-themed playground at the helm of the massive ship’s wheel. It’s the perfect place for playtime while the adults enjoy riverside relaxation with food and drinks from Big Wesser. Open from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm every day.
Treetop Adventure Nets at Nantahala Outdoor Center is the first fully-netted aerial playground in the US! Designed to mimic the build of a ship at sea, kids are able to run wild with their imagination on the ship deck, guiding the vessel through the treetops. With no need for harnesses, kids are able to freely explore the enclosed playground and create their own magic. Head over to the ship’s “Crow’s Nest” overlooking the 2013 World Wave and watch kayakers practice and play. Race through tunnels, slides, and steer the adventure at the helm of the captain’s wheel. With a little imagination, the possibilities are endless!
- Fully-netted aerial playground that requires no harness or equipment.
- Great way for kids as young as three to explore the skies and use their imagination.
- Spectacular vantage point of the Nantahala River and the 2013 World’s Hole.
