Are you having trouble unplugging the kids from their cell phones and iPods this summer? Are you considering having them surgically removed from those video-game controllers and TV remotes? If so, then you're family may be in need of a zipline intervention. And when it comes to getting the whole gang together for some family fun time, our Pigeon Forge ziplines are definitely what the doctor ordered.
After all, it's pretty hard for a video game or a text message to compete with cruising along a zipline at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour and looking down on the scenery below with a birds-eye view. And when the little ones shout, “Let's do that again!” you'll be able to give them the thumbs-up since Smoky Mountain ziplines has 14 different zipline runs in its canopy tour alone.
You'll also like the fact that ziplining is something pretty much everyone in the family can do, regardless of age (although some age and weight restrictions do apply). And whether you've ziplined before or not, it's an activity that Mom, Dad and the kids can all do equally well once you get the hang of it.
