Every now and then, we'll profile different super-extreme zipline attractions around the world – almost always portraying ziplining in the context of fun and amusement. But sometimes, ziplines can be used for more practical purposes. For example, did you know that the Wisconsin National Guard just purchased two mobile zipline units as part of its ongoing recruiting efforts?
Extreme Engineering, the nation's largest supplier of mobile ziplines and climbing walls, will be making its delivery to the Wisconsin National Guard by the end of this month. The two lines will be part of the guard's marketing and promotional campaign as it seeks to attract new recruits. Extreme Engineering's Fly Wire Zip Line is a past winner of the Best Major Theme Park Ride award by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions.
Extreme Engineering has been an official supplier to the U.S. military for more than 19 years, placing its patented mobile climbing walls in almost every state. In fact, the company supplies several proprietary models of its equipment specifically for military use.
At our Pigeon Forge attraction, though, we're just looking to recruit people who want to have fun in the mountains, and we think we've got just the place to do that. Best part is you only have to commit a few hours of your time. If you're interested in the area's best place to zipline, Smoky Mountains scenery and hours of family fun, come see us soon!
