The 4 Best Ziplines in Pigeon Forge for an Adrenaline RushPublished Oct 14, 2020
Add adventure to your Pigeon Forge vacation with high-flying ziplines—combining thrilling speed with stunning views of the Smoky Mountains.
1. LEGACY MOUNTAIN ZIPLINES
Fly between mountaintops at 50 miles per hour, 500 feet above the ground. At Legacy Mountain, challenge yourself on their ziplines linked by rope bridges. Can’t get enough ziplining? A special package lets you ride all seven lines in a day. Got young kids? Children as young as three can ride tandem ziplines with an adult. You’re an adrenaline junkie? Check out Park Hopper Passes, which admit you (at a discount!) to the zipline park plus other locations with go-karts and laser tag.
2. SMOKY MOUNTAIN ZIPLINES
Imagine plunging off a platform high in the treetops and sailing through the leafy forest canopy. Immerse yourself in the woods and zip along seven lines in one of the largest canopy tours in the region at Smoky Mountain Ziplines. Whether you’re a solo flyer, a couple, or a group, the base camp just off the Pigeon Forge Parkway is the headquarters for forest fun. Don’t forget to try the unique “controlled descent” that drops you to the forest floor for a vertical adventure.
3. WEARS VALLEY ZIPLINES
Wears Valley Ziplines boasts beautiful views of the national park and Mount LeConte, with lines that run over forested, private land, for unspoiled vistas. The mile and a half of lines lets you soar at 250 feet above the ground. Kids as young as five can ride, too, with ages five to seven treated to tandem ziplining with adults.
4. FOXFIRE MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE PARK
The seven-line, two-bridge Waterfall and Canopy Zip Tour warms you up on two lines then takes you to mountaintop platforms—your launch pads for riding past a waterfall and through the treetops. The Goliath Zip Tour features five of the country’s highest and longest lines, where you’ll hit up to 60 miles an hour, 500 feet in the air.
Foxfire offers a guided off-road ATV drive up the mountain for ground-level excitement. Or take the self-guided hike over a swinging bridge and past the Lost Mine Waterfall.
After your aerial adventures at Pigeon Forge, refresh yourself at your rental cabin. Soak in a bubbling hot tub or relax by a crackling fire pit as you recall your high-flying day.
