Miracle Heights Adventures engages groups in experiential learning activities that embody the spirit of adventure, build resilience, and empower collective success. We are located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Our Guiding Principles
- The core of our programs is fun and challenging adventure experiences, which help groups and individuals reach their goals.
- Central to our programs is the transformative and healing power of connection–with each other, with ourselves, and with our surroundings.
- Blending action and reflection, our programs tap into the connections between our mind and body, which is vital for positive growth and resilience.
- Within you and within your team, we will explore and identify individual and collective strength
Our team of facilitators will guide your group through a memorable and safe teamwork experience.
Programs are customized for each group to target your individual needs and outcomes. Groups are asked to book no less than two (2) weeks in advance of their desired event. The minimum group size is eight (8) people.
Through our work with teams, we see:
- Increased employee morale and motivation
- Improved team communication
- Increased trust in your team
- Conflict resolution
- Lower stress
- Improved mental energy
- Strengthened organizational health and cultures
We offer a variety of program options at our location, including experience-based organization and team development, behavioral and personality profiles, group games, soft skills training, and adventure education activities. Our site offers a 33-element aerial adventure park, including a 600-foot zip line; a one-of-a-kind Aerial Teams Course, which allows people to support the team through tasks on the ground or in the air; and our Low Ropes Course. We can bring the experience to your site, and even have great success with facilitating virtual programs.
Challenge By Choice
Our program activities follow the philosophy of “Challenge by Choice,” which honors the power of choice and consent, and empowers participants to choose their level of engagement during an event.

“Miracle Heights Adventure provided a challenging, safe, and adventurous experience for our group. There is great flexibility to choose your own course which allows everyone to have their own individual experience while participating with the group. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and encouraging. We only have great things to say and will for sure be back!”

Winston-Salem Fellows Assistant Director
“Miracle Heights Adventure was the perfect community-building experience. There was something for every skill level, and the fact that our group could be on the elements together created a spirit of mutual support and encouragement. I have been on many ropes courses in my life. None of them compare to the variety, fun, and thrill of Miracle Heights Adventures. We will be back!”
Founding Director of Winston-Salem Fellows
“Thank you both for a great event!”
Professional Development Manager, Forsyth Technical Community College
Thank you for talking to me…that was helping me get across the course. It helped so much that I was able to do it three times!

Frequently Asked Questions
We have the only ropes courses in Winston-Salem, including a 33-element Aerial Adventure Park, Aerial Teams Course, and an 8-element low ropes course. Located on Reynolda Road, just a stone’s throw from downtown (you can see the downtown skyline from the course), we have a large pavilion and indoor meeting and dining space. Our Aerial Adventure Park has two levels complete with 33 elements including a 600-foot zipline, a Giant Swing, two climbing walls, and a Quick Jump. Our Aerial Teams Course is one of only two in the world and is geared towards team-based challenges and collaboration, and our low ropes elements allow us to target different goals and outcomes based on your group’s needs.
We will do everything in our program design to ensure that everyone in your group or team can be involved in our events. The weight limit for our adventure course and our ATC is 300 pounds, and the youngest we can have on the course is 4 years old. Our Aerial Teams Course (ATC) and low ropes course will allow us more flexibility for those who want to contribute to a group’s success in a way other than being up in the air. Additionally, participants must not have any medical concerns (including pregnancy) that could be aggravated by participation. Participants must be able to climb a ladder. Young people under 10 years old must be accompanied by an adult. We recommend one adult per three children.
Yes! You can sign up for one of our public pay-to-play days, or contact us about a private tour if you have a group of at least eight (8) people.
Dress ready to be active and outdoors! Closed-toe shoes are required (sandals like Chacos or Tevas are not closed-toe). Wear clothing that is okay to get dirty. It is recommended to not wear dangling jewelry and long hair will need to be tied back. You will be provided with a harness and helmet at the course. The harness will fit snugly around your thighs and waist. So we find that pants or long shorts are generally more comfortable to wear under the harness. If staff considers your clothing to be potentially unsafe, or if your clothing prevents your gear from fitting properly, you may not be allowed to get on the course.
There are no dressing rooms on site, so arrive ready to participate. Personal belongings can be stowed at the bottom of the course for safe keeping.
Tours will go out rain or shine so please dress according to the weather for Winston-Salem, NC. If severe weather should hit – including thunder, lightning, and winds over 20 mph – your event will need to be rescheduled.
All participants need a signed waiver. Guests under 18 will need a parent/guardian signature.
You are welcome to bring a water bottle. We have water coolers at the course where you can refill. Otherwise, whatever personal belongings you bring must be left at the bottom of the course for safekeeping. Please leave any large belongings in a safe location.
There is inherent risk involved in high ropes activities. However, our course and gear are inspected by trained professionals on a daily, monthly, and annual basis. We recognize what is at stake with these activities and hold safety as our number one priority. Our staff receives monthly in-service skills testing to ensure they are following best practices.
We know that your plans may change and that emergencies happen. Reservations canceled more than 48 hours in advance of the tour time will be issued a full 100% refund. Reservations canceled less than 48 hours in advance of the tour time are not eligible for a refund, but may be eligible for rescheduling. Rescheduling is permitted with a 24 or more hours notice in advance of the scheduled tour time.
We are adventure facilitators, not course builders. Our course was built by the folks at Beanstalk Journeys. Give them a call and tell them we sent you!
In organizations, we know that “culture eats strategy for breakfast!” We combine research from organization development work with resilience research and practice to prepare our programs. This research highlights ways to promote thriving teams that bounce forward into hope as they face adversity. Our experiential activities focus on goal setting, developing interpersonal relationships, clarifying roles, and creating additional capacity for problem-solving to increase productivity and team morale.
”Challenge by Choice” is one of the core foundations for our team. This means that no one will be forced into doing something they do not want to do. We believe in the incredible outcomes that happen when challenging ourselves. But we also know what is considered challenging is different for each person. Our respectful and trained staff members will be with you throughout your experience to encourage you and provide assistance as you need it.
Great! We would love to help meet those needs. We have extensive experience facilitating team bonding, team building, and team development opportunities that can take place in any location. Check out our Team Bonding, Off-Site, or Custom Packages if this is what you’re interested in.
