From time to time, it's important that we stress to our customers (old and new) that safety is always our primary concern when you come to visit our zip lines in the Smokies. It's a priority from the moment you step on our property until we see you off safely at the end of your adventure.
In the big scope of things, Pigeon Forge is a pretty small town. It only runs a few miles north and south and has a year-round population of only a few thousand. But anyone who has ever been to the town knows that they pack a whole lot into that small package. So much so that a vacationer could fill an entire week with fun and never leave the city. Now, we know there are also a lot of great reasons to visit Sevierville, Gatlinburg and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. But just to put things into perspective, here's what Pigeon Forge has to offer.
At Smoky Mountain ziplines, our lines are higher, longer and faster than any other ziplines in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge or Sevierville. But we have to admit that we can't lay claim to the world's most extreme zipline attraction. That honor goes to a zipline run in Sarangkot, Nepal, which boasts a 656-yard vertical drop, more than a mile of length and speeds of up to 87 miles per hour! Check out this video:
When you compare all the area zipline attractions by location, one thing begins to stand out about Smoky Mountain Ziplines. Our ziplines in Pigeon Forge offer the ideal combination of seclusion and accessibility.
There's nothing fancy about zipline technology. In fact, it's pretty simple stuff that Sir Isaac Newton figured out hundreds of years ago. But there's something about strapping on a harness and letting gravity pull you from one high point to another across a great distance that conjures up feelings of excitement and adventure.
