START YOUR MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE IN THE SMOKIES WITH A "WAHOO!"
You are looking for a new, fun, outdoor experience. Something that will take you to new heights and dizzying speeds. An adventure to make you holler "Wahooo!" And the answer is Wahoo Ziplines in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. A zip-line is designed to enable a rider to go from one end to the other propelled by gravity. It is also called an aerial runway, aerial ropeslide, zip wire, flying fox or Tyrolean crossing.
Wahoo Ziplines, located between Sevierville and Pigeon Forge, is the place to spend 2 hours flying, soaring, bouncing and zipping through the canopy of trees at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour! But it is safety first at Wahoo and they will help you put on your harness, adjust your helmet and give you a safety briefing to prepare you for a safe journey through the trees.
At first you will tentatively step-off of the platform, unsure of just what will happen and how you will handle it. But after your first flight from platform to platform, you will find yourself running or diving off of the platform and pushing yourself to faster speeds and daring moves, all the while yelling "Wahoooo!"
Every tour puts you on 6 very unique ziplines that are anywhere from 40 to 250 feet off of the ground, and anywhere from 900 feet to 1600 feet long - that's over a quarter of a mile! You will be soaring through and above the trees just like the birds and other wildlife hang out. This is extreme adventure at its finest and you will enjoy an amazing outdoor experience.
