Moonlight and glow sticks illuminate this exhilarating high-wire mountain adventure. Yes this really is a night-time zip-line experience!
Guided by instructors signaling commands with glow sticks, aerial adventurers in this This Bryson City moonlight zipline adventure zip across a two-mile course through the canopy above the smoky mountains. Your zips from mountaintop to mountaintop are the warm up for an epic ½ mile megazip that offers big sky and mountain views.
In addition to starlit skies and mountain silhouettes, between zips you are treated to the sounds of the Smoky Mountain Orchestra – a nighttime feature courtesy of crickets, cicadas and other mountain wildlife.
Previous zipline experience is key to enjoying the moonlight zip. Fortunately there are several zipline options in Bryson City, so you can squeeze in some daylight training runs before your moonlight adventure.
Know Before You Go
