What You'll Get
In the ancient world devoid of zip lines, humans were confined to the ground, endlessly speculating about the natural wonders that existed at the tops of all proximate trees and mega-skyscrapers. Leapfrog the evolutionary gap with today’s side deal. $45 gets you one admission to a zip-line tour with Wahoo Ziplines (a $89 value), located in Sevierville,Tennessee. At Wahoo Ziplines, guests can soak in majestic views of the Great Smoky Mountains as they soar above treetops at speeds of up to 40 mph. This tour features six signature zip lines, which, when stretched end-to-end, total a distance of more than two miles. Pre-flight, participants receive a briefing on safety before donning gloves, a helmet, and a safety harness for their aviatory journey. Then, one of Wahoo’s veteran, certified guides hooks up the harnesses, and ushers thrill-seekers through the skies on cables that are strung anywhere from 40–250 feet off the ground, the exact altitudinal range required for impressing bald eagles and doubtful middle school gym teachers.
Grouponers are encouraged to come prepared by wearing comfortable walking or tennis shoes, putting long hair in a pony-tail, and cameras fastened around wrists or neck with straps.
