We recently packed up the fam and headed north to the High Country where the weather is cooler on these hot September days. Our first stop was High Gravity Adventures in Blowing Rock, since my kids are monkeys and will climb anything in their paths. High Gravity Adventures did not disappoint. We were there for 3 hours and if it were up to the kids, they would have stayed even longer!
High Gravity Adventures is an aerial adventure park located in Blowing Rock, NC. The park provides fun and excitement for the whole family, with aerial ropes course challenges fit for adults and little ones as young as four years old. In all, more than 75 different challenges make up the course, where guests can climb, balance and swing from heights of 15 to 50 feet in the air.
Some of the highlights include:
A zillion different options for the kids to climb and swing, and even a GIANT SWING, new this summer! They never got bored.
There was an amazing deck with adirondack chairs, umbrellas, great coffee and wifi. You can seriously set up shop here. Oh, did I mention the 75 degree and sunny weather??
Since I have a slight case of a fear of heights, my hubby had to do the whole course, it was glorious!
One of my kids’ favorite parts was the new Mountain Ninja Warrior Course, we named them #twinjas…
The Plym crew gave High Gravity Adventures a HUGE thumbs up. We’ll be back, either on our next trip to Blowing Rock – always a good excuse to get up to Blowing Rock! Or just for another day trip, to get the monkey jitters out of their system!
