The Smoky Mountains offer more than thrills than just views, shopping, and hikes, and among our favorite alternative adventures are ropes courses! For that reason, we are using today’s blog to share three of the ones we love best! Let’s get climbing! Note: make sure to check height and weight requirements before booking any of these adventures!
Gatlin’s Rugged Ropes Adventure Course
First up is a brand new Gatlinburg attraction, Gatlin’s Rugged Ropes Adventure Course! With thirty-eight different challenges ranging from balance-testing bridges to suspended tightropes, this adrenaline-pumping park is equipped to thrill the entire family! Don’t miss this exciting addition to the Gatlinburg scene!
The Island’s Sky Trail Explorer Ropes Course
If you are in Pigeon Forge, the Sky Trail Explorer Ropes Course is a must-see! Packed among the wonderful shops at the Island, Sky Trail stands three stories high, and offers two zip lines, a simulated free fall (quick jump), and a total of thirty different ways to get your blood pumping! Take a break from retail therapy to visit this epic ropes course!
Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Adventure Park
We finish with a personal favorite of the HMR team that gives visitors a truly unique ropes course experience! During two jam-packed hours at Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Adventure Park, you can experience the Flying Ox (first of its kind zipline roller coaster), the High Woodsmen Challenge (lumberjack-themed ropes course), Loggersports (competitive log rolls, boom runs, and speed climbs), and Timber Towers with its two 80-foot free fall jumps! The thrill-seeker in you can’t miss out on this incredible park!
