If you've never taken a ride on a zipline before, here's a video that will give you a pretty accurate idea of what it's like. Of course, you won't be able to experience the sensation of speeding along at nearly 40 miles per hour, like you can at Smoky Mountain Ziplines. And you won't be able to feel the wind in your face. But this video does give you a feel for the sights and sounds that go along with taking a zipline adventure.
The zipline in this video is a 1,100-foot-long line in Vancouver, British Columbia. You'll notice that the rider keeps getting turned around (something that our guides at SM Ziplines will teach you to correct) and that he slows down a little too much near the end and comes up short of his destination. Again, our guides will always give you hand signals for braking to help you make it all the way to your landing platform.
Also check out our own videos here on the website, and you'll get a better idea why our canopy tours in Pigeon Forge are better than any zip line Gatlinburg, TN has to offer.
