If you've never been ziplining before, you may be wondering if it's a safe recreational activity. Let us put any fears you may have to rest by assuring you that safety is our number one priority from start to finish at Smoky Mountain Ziplines.
All of our zipline cables are reinforced and rigged to the meet the most stringent requirements. The lines are inspected regularly to ensure their integrity as is the safety equipment and gear that we issue to our customers. Our harnesses, clips and caribiners are all in topnotch shape, and our staff checks and double checks them when you get suited up at our outpost. You're also issued a helmet as well as safety gloves, which are used to help you slow yourself down on the ziplines.
Once you're out on the course, two guides are assigned to each group of zipliners to make sure that you launch and land safely during each run. Your guide will also get your personal rig connected to the zipline and make sure that you're securely locked onto the line before sending you on your way.
And remember that if you're looking for the best area ziplines, Gatlinburg won't have what you're looking for. You'll only find the biggest and best zipline course in Pigeon Forge at Smoky Mountain Ziplines.
