Adrenaline Rush: Ziplining At ClimbWorks

Who knew ziplining in the Great Smoky Mountains with ClimbWorks in Gatlinburg, TN would be so much fun?

The photo above shows Mickey from A Helicopter Mom zipping through the mountain trees.

Before you head out on your adventure, the staff at ClimbWorks helps you get suited up. Amy from Grinning Cheek To Cheek and I both went zipping during our last Brandcation trip in Pensacola, so we *thought* we knew what to expect this time around.

I even wore my zombie shirt just to annoy Amy. Yes, everyone asked me about it, and I totally got a kick out of making my zombie face.

3 Reasons ClimbWorks is a superior place to zipline:

1. The guides are cute AND funny.

2. They use touchscreens for check-in and waivers, which speeds up the process and helps eliminate paper waste.

3. The views are AMAZING!

One thing I really enjoyed is that you don’t use your hands to brake at ClimbWorks. They have a device they send out to help “catch” you and they show you how to move your body to slow down so you can land gently on the platform. Joy from Joyful Musings was the Starfish queen out of our group.

I really can’t say enough about the staff at ClimbWorks. They really embrace the company’s motto and help you conquer your fears for an amazing, unforgettable experience.

Challenge. Learn. Inspire. Master. Believe.

They recently started offering NIGHT zipline tours, and I can’t wait to go back and experience a canopy tour in the dark!
