Some people just feel the need—the need for speed, as they said so famously in the movie Top Gun. If your idea of fun is all about fast-paced action, then Pigeon Forge has several options for you. The Parkway is home to several amusement providers with go-cart tracks, where you can burn rubber speeding around hairpin turns. Other attractions offer bungee jumping, allowing you to build up a little freefall speed as you plummet from dizzying heights. There's also an indoor skydiving attraction where you're actually motionless but suspended in mid-air on a column of wind air generated by a giant propeller underneath the wire mesh floor. It simulates the sensation of a real high-altitude freefall.
The fastest fun in the Smokies, however, can only be found at our Pigeon Forge ziplines. Our 14-line canopy tour allows you to work your way up to the longest and fastest ziplines in the area, and you'll soon find yourself zipping along at speeds as fast as 40 miles per hour. On top of that, you benefit from being outdoors, with the wind in your hair, and you get to immerse yourself in the beauty of the surrounding Great Smoky Mountains. Smoky Mountain Ziplines is your fast track to good times in Tennessee.
