It's nice out now, but soon, the weather conditions will get to the point where it's not feasible for us to stay open; it's just about that time of year when folks start to shy away from outdoor activities. In the meantime, however, we encourage you to take advantage of these beautiful fall days and come spend a few hours on our ziplines in the Smoky Mountains.

4 Fun Things To Do During The Off Season

Posted on January 6, 2015

Now that the holidays are over, things tend to slow down a little bit here in the Smokies. But not too much.

Everest) has literally taken the activity to new heights by opening a line that's a mile long and offers a vertical drop of nearly 2,000 feet during that span.
