Zip Line Climbworks in Gatlinburg - Rope Bridge

Sevier County Choppers—If you think you’ve seen it all while in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge area, you haven’t seen anything until you get a bird’s eye view of the whole area. When you’re several thousand feet up and touring the entire Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Mountain Valley area, that’s when it’s exciting! Never been in a helicopter before and just want to get your feet wet? Well you sure can. They offer helicopter tours from four minutes long and you will get a beautiful view of the Smoky Mountains and Sevierville. Does it sound exciting? Wait till you see it from 800 feet up! That’s just a taste of what you’ll get. If you’re a little more adventurous, they offer longer and more exciting tours that last up to 60 minutes.

They have tours for every type of explorer including Pigeon Forge, Foothills, Douglas Lake, Mountain Valley, Gatlinburg, Wears Valley/Gatlinburg, See It All Tour, Clingman’s Dome, and of course, The Ultimate Tour of 60 minutes long.

If you want to pair a ride with some grub, take the Lazy Cricket route. Pick a tour, fly up to 3,500 feet, and land on a private helipad with exclusive views. Then enjoy daily selected food pairing with beer, wine, and Tennessee moonshine.

Wonders of Flight—Enjoy a breathtaking Pigeon Forge balloon ride. If you’ve ever wanted to take a balloon ride, they offer that, but giant-sized. How’s 500 feet up in a balloon that’s 72 feet in diameter?! They can take you up and 29 of your friends in the gondola at a time. See the awesome views of the Smoky Mountains at daytime or nighttime. It’s great for groups and weddings too. Say “I Do” while overlooking the Smoky Mountains in a tethered ride.

The average ride is approximately five and ten minutes long, but could be up to 15 minutes depending on wind and weather conditions. If you like to take selfies, this is a great place to do it as there is plenty of scenery here with a 360-degree view.

America’s Longest Swinging Bridge—It’s longer than a football field at 335 feet across the Foxfire Gorge, and an awesome view as you hike through the trees. This could be your most exciting yet laid-back day in the Smoky Mountains, hiking across a gorge and visiting the Whispering Winds Covered Bridge. Of course there are miles to hike if you want to that too. Then stop off at Dunn’s Creek for a picnic, a game of cornhole, or set your kids on an obstacle course in Lava Valley. What a fun day for you and the family!

Tuckaleechee Caverns—The views above the Smokies are definitely an awesome thing to see, but you must see what’s under the Smokies! Some of the oldest mountains are the Tuckaleechee Caverns. Did you know there are 8,350 known caverns in Tennessee? But Tuckaleechee caverns are some of the most interesting. In rainy season, beautiful falls are created as the valley above drains into a sink hole. There’s one stalagmite 12 feet high in the expansive Big Room called the Totem Pole. Go see them for yourself today.
