1. Dress Appropriately for the Weather

ziplining in smoky mountainsThe first tip is to make sure you dress appropriately for the weather. The last thing you want is your time to be ruined because you’re wearing something uncomfortable. We operate rain or shine, so make sure to wear something you don’t mind getting a little wet because rain can come and go pretty quickly. We recommend that you don’t wear any short shorts, dresses, skirts or baggy clothes. And make sure you’re wearing closed-toed shoes. No Chacos or Five Finger shoes are acceptable.

2. Leave Valuable Items at Home

The best thing to do is to leave all of your valuable items at home. Anything that you wouldn’t want to get lost, just don’t bring it with you! We offer complimentary lockers to hold your keys, wallets, and other small items but everything else should be left in the car or back where you’re staying. This is just to ensure you don’t misplace any important items. We also do not allow you to have any unsecured items while you’re ziplining. Anything that can fall out, like keys and water bottles, are not allowed on the tour. This is to guarantee the safety of those working or traveling under our ziplines and platforms.

3. Make a Reservation

You wouldn’t want to build up your excitement only to get there and not be able to zipline because we’re booked!

Keep in mind that during busy seasons, you should make a reservation at least 5 days in advance, and we are closed on Sundays. To make a reservation, you can book online or call us at 865-325-8116.
