The thrilling courses at Daredevil Ziplines were originally built for the adrenaline junkies on the finale of the action series The Controller: Medal of Honor Warfighter. Happy shrieks now spiral out from members of the general public as they hit the 50 mile-per-hour speeds experienced by the stars of the show. The Dare Ya! ride whisks participants downhill for 600 feet before being stopped abruptly on the bungee braking system, which then sends them whipping out over a lake and stopping gently. They then glide down among sweet-smelling pine boughs and make a soft landing.

The Aerial Challenge combines a zipline with an aerial obstacle course, including a suspended log walk, ladders, a swinging bridge and platform, and rope walks. Riders can end the challenge with a short walk to a bridge overlooking the Tuck spring, which flows from the roots of a century old oak tree. Streams babble above and below the ground, carving the limestone into organic-looking curlicues covered with moss and ferns like somebody who won’t get off the Jurassic Park ride.

Major Ridge is a polarizing figure in Cherokee history. He was one of the signers of the Treaty of New Echota, which sold Cherokee lands to the United States in exchange for Oklahoma, and led to the forced Native American migration know as The Trail of Tears. Today, though, Major Ridge's erstwhile home in Georgia is the Chieftains Museum?a site that celebrates Cherokee history and culture at large, not just his controversial contribution to it.

  • Size: Sprawling mansion-sized. Extensions have been added since Major Ridge's tenure there, reflecting key moments in Georgia's architecture history.
  • Key credential: The location has been listed on the National Historic Register since 1973.
  • Eye Catcher: The two-story dogtrot-style log cabin at the core of the house, where Major Ridge lived centuries ago.
  • "Dogtrot-Style" Means: The cabin is really two separate cabins, connected by a breezeway a dog could, hypothetically, trot down, especially if there's a steak at the other end and someone yelling "Here, boy!"
  • In the Giftshop: Visitors can stock up on jewelry, dreamcatchers, and replica arrowheads before they hit the road.

Sportations connects amateur adrenaline jockeys to certified professional adventurers, drawing from a nationwide network of aeronauts and speed demons to introduce habitual pedestrians to the wonders of skydiving, ballooning, hang gliding, and stock-car racing. Thrill seekers can zipline across a forest canopy, hollering like Tarzan or taunting nearby birds until they agree to race. Helicopter tours ferry patrons skyward over landmarks and cityscapes, whereas paragliding adventures get up close and personal with blue skies and clouds. For most sports, Sportations accommodates groups of any size, from physics classes empirically proving gravity's existence to solo ballooning supervillains declaring dominion over all they see.
