This was a great adventure. Our guides Mike & Trent were great. They explained everything in detail and were very safe. We did not feel insecure about the trip at all. Since it was off-season, we were the only ones that went up. That was great. I can't wait to go back and take others with us. Next time we... More

Our family just took a wildwater zipline canopy tour and had a blast. My wife, our boys( 11 & 13 )and I found our guides, Jedi Mike and Trent very informative and entertaining. The standard of safety was the highest and the experience was a delight. I would recommend this adventure to family and friends.

My husband and I booked the combo trip of rafting and zip lining and we had a great time! I was very nervous about the zip lining but had a ton of fun, and we both really enjoyed the rafting. Great bbq for lunch too. Ask for Mike!

We booked the combo package online before going down. Well worth the money and doing it ahead saves time/searching. This company was top notch-from the greeters at front desk check-in to folks that guided you-all were friendly and knowledgable. We began with zip lining-I chickened out after ground school-my kids went on without me. No problem with management-refunded my money... More

We went to the outpost in Hartford, TN on a Thursday before Memorial Day. We did the waterfall gorge canopy zipline tour, followed by white water rafting on the Upper Pigeon River. The whole day cost $130 per person, with lunch at the doghouse included...it was a great experience! The zipline tour included 15 zips, some from rock cliffs, treehouses,... More

We took advantage of everything Gatlinburg had to offer, and this was the family favorite. We had Steve (Stretch) for a guide, and he was excellent. We all felt safe and comfortable, but right on the edge of excited and thrilled! Perfect combination, we highly recommend it!

Our guide Mike made everything very intense and action packed, He was full of life and made everyone completely comfortable! From sing alongs on the bus to joke about the waters, it was an amazing experience. I personally recommend Mike, as he is an excellent guide!

We had a wonderful whitewater trip with our guide Dawn! From a fun bus ride to the start of the water, to a stop and jump off a rock that was great for the young and old, my husband and I had loads of fun. We felt safe and well cared for the entire time!
