Put A Little Zip In Your Nightlife
If zip-lining through the trees of the Great Smoky Mountains at upwards of 50 mph doesn’t seem quite excitingenough, well, then I’ve got just the thing. Adventure Park Zip Lines at Five Oaks will send you speeding down their zip lines in the dark.
Adventure Park is 30 minutes south of Knoxville, Tennessee, in Sevierville, just north of the Gatlinburg entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park on Highway 321. During the day, Adventure Park offers zip-lining along seven different lines, ranging from 450 ft. to 2,500 ft. above a 70-acre nature park. Once the sun goes down, it gets really interesting.
The park’s Zip At Night Experience is relatively new and runs along a modified course starting at 8 p.m. The nighttime tours usually last an hour and are led by a park guide. The last tour takes off at 10 p.m. The park also offers guided, horseback trail rides 6 miles through the Great Smoky Mountains. It can be a great afternoon prelude to your nighttime zip-lining.
