Wahoo Ziplines - Dual Zipline Tours of the Smoky Mountains

Wahoo Ziplines is unique to the Smoky Mountains, with no other zipline of this magnitude in the surrounding area. With over 2 miles of cable, the zipline is split into 6 signature lines from 900 to 1600 feet long and from 40 to 250 feet in the air! Each line will amaze you as you soar through the mountains, taking in the panoramic scenery, and feeling like you're flying. This adrenaline pumping adventure takes place over 80 acres in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains. Come prepared to spend the next 2 hours of your life zipping, flying, soaring, and bouncing through the canopy of the trees at speeds of 40 MPH. Safety is our main concern. To ensure the safety of our guests, all of our guides have undergone rigorous training and each has been certified through Universal Zipline Technology (UZT).Each tour consists of riding our 6 very unique ziplines. Participants wear gloves, helmet, and a harness with a carbineer that is attached to a pulley that will be placed on a cable strung between platforms. You push off the platform and zip along the cable going from hilltop to hilltop. You will be anywhere from 40-250 feet off the ground and, literally, flying between the trees at a height where birds and other wildlife hang out on the branches. Getting started, First, the experience will include some 'how to' information plus a safety briefing. You will see how we put on the harness, latch into the cable. After you learn the basics and watch a demonstration, you will get your chance to participate in a once in a lifetime adventure.

Creds to you and Shiny on this one. Sure, a bit on the pricey side but what a rush! The only thing better would be aerotrekking that valley but I don't own one yet... Next in the line of SlyGuy toys.

I could be up for this...

Is this interfering with any existing events (I don't *think* so).
Is there a consolodated schedule showing all of these events?
Having gone this far I just don't want miss anything ;0)

this is on Sat and the only other group event is the River Tubing which you did sign up for.. So the question is which would you rather do......

There is no way to do both.... Everyone needs to be back at the Village by 5:00 and the Zip Line takes 2-3 hours to complete and 1 1/2 hours to get there..... The same for the Tubing, so both of these events are all day.....

We will be posting a Complete Event Schedule Soon...... There will also be a detailed personalized schedule you will have on your lanyard showing what you have been assigned and what you have signed up to attend...

Kim,

Please PM or open forum here route you think will be taken to/from Zipline.

We may need to discover an alternate road due to Saturdays in August with tourist traffic taken into account! I live within 15 miles of the place and would be willing to drive/time alternates if you'd like.

You will be fine. i will let you wear my feather underwear you designed just in case. I am quite certain, given the number of feathers, you would float to the ground like a bird:yesnod: (okay, maybe the aerodynamics don't work that way but trust me...).

You are way too organized (and thank-you for being so for us all)!
Please switch me over to this - I have done both in other venues and I'm sure I'll have more fun with this. Besides, I like heights!

I would love to go and try a zip line. Not sure what the heck I'm doing yet. Was just looking for flights for Thursday night. Although, maybe I can drive if most of the fun is Friday. TBD!!! :willy:

I for sure can't leave until Thursday. I'm waiting on 2 things to happen:
My boss to get back Wednesday so I can feel him out about me taking the Friday during a start-up off and I have to confirm my summer intern's presentation is Thursday and not Friday. I heard it's Thursday.

Keep your fingers crossed!!! :)
