If you’ve always wanted to try out a Zip-Line, there is one just a few minutes away and another at Ruby Falls in Chattanooga (about an hour).
The Ruby Falls ZIPstream Aerial Adventure is a new obstacle course of sorts – a series of self-directed courses for children and adults to move through “tree-to-tree” activities as high as 50 feet off the ground. It’s being called the first adventure of its type in Tennessee. Like ski resort slopes, courses are graded by colors and shapes. The 20 high-wire activities include ladders, nets, walkways, bridges, tunnels and zip lines where you can slide from point to point from a wire.

Ocoee Zipz (OZ) is the Ocoee River’s first major adventure activity since whitewater sports began on the Ocoee in 1976. Over a mile of zipline fun will get your adrenaline pumping from start to finish.
