7 Ziplines - over half mile of lines!
Who we are
Due to the tragic wildfire events of November 28th 2016 Zip Gatlinburgs old location is temporarily under construction, but has since partnered with White Oak Ziplines to offer a brand new fun filled family experience just a small 20 minute drive from downtown Gatlinburg to the beautiful East Parkway area.
White Oak Ziplines is a locally owned Adventure Park designed with all ages in mind. Whether you are an experienced zipliner or a first time participant, you will be thrilled as you glide through the natural environment filled with oaks, maples, elms and rhododendron.
Located adjacent to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, our Zipline Adventure and Family Fun Center spans over 12 beautifully wooded acres. We have made every effort to create a memorable experience for you while being environmentally friendly and maintaining as much natural landscape as possible.

Our Course was constructed by an Association of Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) Approved Builder and is inspected to ACCT standards by a third party vendor at least once a year, to ensure that every cable, platform and bridge is safe to use. Every day, before the first tour of the day, one of our guides inspects the course to make sure that it is safe to zip.
Our Equipment is of the highest quality and is purchased under recommendation from our and meticulous records are kept of the date every piece of equipment was put into service, it’s usage, last inspection date and when it should be retired. All our equipment is inspected to ACCT standards by a third party vendor at the same time as our course is inspected. We also perform internal checks of our equipment monthly, and every piece is also inspected before use by the tour guides.
Our Guides pass a full background check and interview process before being hired. They each undergo a 40 hour training in small groups to learn how to perform all the essential functions of the job. After they have passed this phase, they are then shadowed on multiple tours by our experienced staff to ensure that they are comfortable on the course. Only after they have passed this final check are they allowed to lead a tour. Each guide is trained to ACCT standards and receives a ‘Skill Check’ to ensure they have the skills and knowledge required. We also perform in-services to keep our guides current on their skills.
Our Policies and Procedures have undergone many updates and reviews before opening in 2017, and we are confident that we operate one of the most experienced and safest canopy tours in the country.
