This past Labor Day, a 91-year-old Ohio woman celebrated her birthday by riding a zipline at Van Demark Farm in Sidney, Ohio. The woman, Audrey Myers, was quoted as saying, “'I saw it on TV, and it looked like so much fun, and I just always wanted to do it. Didn't think I'd get the chance, though, but I just always wanted to.''
What's the moral of this story? It's that if you're in the proper physical condition to do so, ziplining is for folks of almost any age. That's how we feel here at Smoky Mountain Ziplines. We welcome fun seekers of all ages, although we do have some minimum age requirements. You must be at least 8 years old and weigh 60 pounds to ride solo, but cooperative 5-year-old kids can ride tandem with a guide.
From there, all you have to do is wear the proper clothing and safety equipment and go through our instructional course. Then our experienced guides will lead the way and get you safely through the adventure of a lifetime.
And speaking of birthdays, our Smoky Mountain zip lines are a great way to celebrate. Come on your own or make a group party of it so your friends and family can help you have a high-flying good time.
