Summer means warmer temperatures, which means being able to have fun outdoors. But it also means having to be careful not to get overheated when the mercury is on the high end of the stick. The good thing about ziplining is that it lets you get outside and enjoy being outdoors in the summer, but at the same time, the nature of the activity helps you keep your cool.
For those planning to zipline, Smoky Mountains woodlands make an ideal setting for outdoor adventure. At Smoky Mountain Ziplines, for example, we have a 14-line canopy course utilizing existing mature hardwoods that provide natural shade for our participants. So when you're waiting your turn to take off on a run down one our ziplines, chances are you'll be standing under a tree, which will help keep you protected from the sun's harshest rays.
When you're actually zipping along our secure steel cables, you might be in direct sunlight, but at that point, you'll be moving along at a nice clip and feeling some nice breezes on your face to help keep you cool.
Smoky Mountain Ziplines guests face only short walks between platforms, and we let you cool down in a pavilion with some ice-cold water too, so you don't have to let that mean, nasty sun spoil your summer fun this year.
