Thanksgiving Family Outings

The holiday season is upon us, and with it comes the opportunity to spend time with people you may not see very often. You may be expecting relatives from several states away or old friends who don’t regularly get to travel. Following a satisfying Thanksgiving dinner, you may be looking for a few family Thanksgiving activities to bond with your loved ones and spend some time outdoors. Look no further than Adventureworks! 

Adventureworks offers ziplining, aerial adventure courses, nature hikes, and fun teambuilding activities for people aged eight and over. Here’s what to expect:

Free as a Bird: A Thanksgiving Ziplining Adventure

Ziplining is the premiere activity at all four Adventureworks locations. Following a brief hike to a zipline, you’ll hop into a harness held by a pulley system. Forget your worries as you swing through the air at high speeds above the beautiful nature preserves. Ziplining is the closest experience to flying that you’ll find. Anyone can join in the fun!

Each of our locations offers different scenery to enjoy. In West Nashville, you’ll find a forest adjoining the Harpeth River, with nine ziplines to try your hand at. In our Virginia Beach, VA, location, you’ll travel along the coastal wetlands less than five miles from the Atlantic Oceanfront.

Between ziplining adventures, you’ll experience a short one- to five-minute hike through nature. During your walk, you can share your zipline experience with your family and friends. They’re sure to share theirs, too! 

Aerial Adventure Courses: Challenges Await

At our Hot Springs, AR, location, we offer aerial adventures you won’t find anywhere else. The Treetop Aerial Adventure Course is set high in the sky, amongst swinging bridges, hanging vines, and cargo nets. As you transverse through 16 different challenges, you’ll experience an adrenaline rush and a sense of accomplishment. 

For a maximum-thrill experience, you can combine the Aerial Adventure Course with the Canopy Zip Tour. The Canopy Zip Tour course is next to a creek that feeds into Lake Catherine, providing a scenic bird’s eye view of the surrounding trees and paths. You’ll ride ten different zip lines at different heights and speeds. The entire tour takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete. 

Teambuilding: A Chance to Build Communication with Family

Want to strengthen your bond with your family and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday? Consider scheduling a Group Rescue Adventure at one of our Nashville locations. Among Thanksgiving games for kids, this ranks among the top! You and your family will receive a map, survival guide, and a few “native materials” that you’ll use to secure your way to safety following a pretend emergency landing on a plane. The challenge provides lots of opportunities for collaboration and communication among family members.

We can customize your family’s adventure to accommodate younger children. Our activities are fun and wholesome experiences for groups of families and friends.
