What's a really fun way to celebrate a birthday? You might ask Charleston, West Virginia, resident Dorothy King, who recently marked her 90th trip around the sun by visiting a zipline attraction in her home state. In fact, this bucket-list outing was exactly what she had asked for to mark the occasion.
King started out by doing just a short test run on one of the beginner lines, but soon, she found herself fearlessly taking on all of the attraction's six ziplines. Her last run was a 3,100-foot double line that allowed her to race one of her sons to the bottom at nearly 60 miles per hour. Even a previous hip-replacement procedure didn't deter this grandmother from experiencing the thrills of ziplining.
At Smoky Mountain Ziplines, our 24-line canopy tours and SuperZip lines make a great setting for a birthday celebration, whether you're 90 years old or just 9. As long as you're physically able, we provide the rest, from safety equipment to instructions on how to launch, steer, brake and land on each platform. Two guides per group maximize your safety.
We also have facilities here that no Pigeon Forge, Sevierville or Gatlinburg zip line attraction can match. We can host any sort of group celebration at our base camp, whether it's a birthday gathering or family reunion. Give us a call this week to book your next big bash in the Smokies!
