We had a fabulous time zipping with Steele, Colby and Ethan! On our tour we learned about the history of the nearby mountains of the Smokies, hightailed it down lines, and shared lots of laughs. 100/10 best lines and best time we've had ziplining!

This was my second time to zipline here but my first time on the mountaintop lines. The guides were awesome (Evan, Steel, Cory) and very patient. We were a small group so we were able to take our time and take it all in. I highly recommend this as the place to go to zipline.

My wife and I are in our 60s and this was our first time to zipline. So you can believe we were a little apprehensive. But after only a few minutes on site one thing stood out these were professionals and knew exactly what they were doing. Safety was at the forefront. The experience was awesome and worth every dollar. Can't wait to go back. My daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons agree it was by far the highlight of the trip. Our guides Sam, Katie and Owen could not have been better!

Trust this. Give your kids, spouse, and/or friends the favorite experience they will talk about for a lifetime. If you’re reading this review to figure out if you want to try it, DO IT! You won’t regret it! Don’t settle for the wimpy zip lines built along a parking lot somewhere, they don’t even compare. You will be amazed by the views and adrenaline. Go BEST or go home. My husband and son thought they didn’t want to do it and I booked it as a surprise. They’re so glad they did it.
