Those of you who have done a zipline course before know how much fun it is to fly through the air like a bird and see the world from a whole new perspective. But if you've never joined us here at Smoky Mountain Ziplines, you may be curious about exactly what kind of zipline experiences we offer.
f you're more interested in getting close to nature and doing some sightseeing, you might want to consider our canopy tour, which takes you zipline by zipline through the hills and forests of our scenic Smoky Mountain setting. The 14 different ziplines on this tour start out comparatively low and slow and gradually build in height and speed, which allows newbies to get acclimated to the experience. Between ziplines, the course utilizes both trees and manmade structures to give you plenty of room to take in the scenery around you. You can even take your camera with you on your Pigeon Forge zipline adventure, provided you keep it secured to your body with a wrist or neck strap. The canopy tour lasts anywhere from two to three hours, depending on the size of your group.
If you're more interested in thrills than sightseeing, you may want to harness up for our Super Ziplines—four side-by-side ziplines that are 100 feet high and run 800 feet in length. (Note that you must first take the canopy tour before being allowed to run the Super Ziplines.) This experience lasts about 40 minutes, and that includes getting suited up, zip school time and transportation to the launch point.
