We were on vacation and wanted to try ziplining. We happened to see a sign for Next to Heaven, when we were taking a drive through Townsend so we called them the next morning and they said we could get in immediately. When we got there, they had a deal to do both ziplining and horseback riding so that's what... More

The horses were amazing. They were gentle and obedient. The trail was breathe taking. The staff was so knowledgable, friendly and professional. My parents couldn't ride for health reasons so while we were on the trail they served them free coffee. If you don't do anything else while in the Smokies, do this.

Awesome experience! The ride is unguided and the horses were great -... More

This was my first zip line experience and something I've wanted to do for about 10 years but never had the chance. My husband and children, ages 5 & 8 went and had a blast. Our zip guides were very helpful and gave clear directions. The 3rd line had an incline at the end, so my son and daughter went... More

Great place to take kids. Zip lining and horse back ride was awesome. Their cabins are the best place to stay for the price. Nice 2 bedroom cabin for $100 a night.

Our family decided to split up. My daughter and I rode horses while my husband and 2 other daughters zip lined. The horse ride was amazing. It is an unguided trail ride. It was a special experience for me and my daughter to share together. The horses were very well trained and when we arrived at the grand view on... More
