Ziplining—The Accessible Adventure Activity

By Ross Bodhi Ogle
Posted on November 8, 2010

Maybe you've only seen people enjoy ziplines on television. If so, perhaps the sight of folks speeding along a metal cable high above the ground might have seemed a little intimidating to you. But if you're thinking that ziplining is akin to jumping out of an airplane with a parachute or bungee jumping off a tall bridge, then allow us to present ziplining in a whole new light.

Ziplining is one of the most accessible adventure activities around, offering big fun and big thrills for a wide range of ages—and all possible with no previous experience required and a minimum of preparation and training. Unlike skydiving or even scuba diving—which require hours and hours of instruction and training, ziplining can be picked up in just a few minutes thanks to our well-trained staff of zipline pros. And don't worry, we provide all the equipment you'll need to zipline with the best.

Our age and weight limitations allow for virtually anyone in the family to participate, and after a brief tutorial from one of our guides, we'll start you out on short ziplines that are just a short distance off the ground. Once you've gotten a chance to get comfortable with starting and stopping techniques, you're ready to take on longer, faster and higher runs on our Pigeon Forge zip line course.

And if our 14-line canopy tour just whets your appetite for more, our four-line SuperZip course will let you experience, the biggest, baddest ziplines in the Smokies!
