Wow! One of our best zip line experiences ever. Started when we got there with Barbara. It was like we have known each other a long time. Then our team Jerod and Steve Lawson were the best. Took our time and enjoyed the moment. We will be back a lot.

Drove up to Hartford and just stopped in, the owner was doing some gardening and was so helpful bringing me into the office and explaining they did not know if there would be a water release from the dam that day. There was nobody signed up for the afternoon (all the other centers were not even opened) but they said... More

"Best day ever" were the words spoken by our 11 year old after zip lining and going on the Jeep Tour up to Rocky Top. We had booked the zip lining in advance, but the Jeep Tour was a last minute add on that we are soooo glad we did! Trent and Nate were our guides for zip lining. They... More

This course requires self breaking with a gloved hand but it was really simple and quite natural once we tried it. The instructors did an excellent job walking us through the process and getting us out on the course safely. The progression from beginner obstacles to the biggest ones was gradual and perfect for building our confidence. Make sure you... More

Courtney and Travis guided us on this shorter tour of zip lining, which was just the right amount, given it was over 90 degrees on this afternoon! It was HOT but AWESOME, as my niece and I braved the heat and humidity for a little high rise fresh air! We had a nice size group, which moved things along. This... More

Great ziplining adventure with Two Star and Del Rio as our guides. They were fantastic fun with our 5 teenagers. Proper preparation and safety training were given. Definitely recommend this to anyone with teens looking for thrills. White water rafting through the same company available on site. We did both on the same day and picniced on site. Covered tables...
