Most people probably don't associate the country of Wales with extreme outdoor sports, but when it comes to ziplines, this British Isles nation is certainly making a name for itself. A company called Zip World has several different zipline runs that give thrill seekers something to talk about.
The Zip World Titan allows four passengers to fly in tandem at up to 60 miles per hour. The company's Zip World Velocity became the longest zipline in the northern hemisphere in 2013, reaching speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. In all, the attractions offer nearly five miles' worth of ziplining fun.

Of course, at our ziplines in the Smoky Mountains, extreme ziplining is nothing new. Our four tandem SuperZip lines have been offering off-the-charts thrills for Pigeon Forge visitors for years. And our 24-line canopy tour offers a wide range of high-flying experiences for locals and tourists of all ages and levels of zipline experience.
The best part is that you don't have to travel all the way to Wales to get your fill of zipline fun. We're conveniently located just two miles off the Parkway in Pigeon Forge, which makes us convenient to anyone staying in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge or Sevierville.
