As many of our veteran zip line participants already know, we at CLIMB Works always strive to Challenge ourselves to reach the next level.
In our previous years, the available times that were offered to our participants ranged from early sunrise to late in the evening for canopy tours. During the month of October we wanted to push the experience of zip lining even further.
We Learned that we could safely provide an experience to our participants that was entirely different from the tours provided during the day. By implementing our braking device, named the “Zip KEA” (Kinetic Energy Absorber), we found that night zipping could and would be a reality.
By providing headlamps to participants and lanterns to our guides, we were able to develop a successful system that provided a safe, educational, and fun experience. We found that participants, both new and old, were Inspired at the chance to experience this new journey into the night.
Unlike the tours during the day, the night tours focused more on the constellations seen in night sky and the nocturnal wild life roaming through the forest. By zipping through the forest at night you are given a first hand view of the Smoky Mountain National Park. Our location’s distance from the city provides us with low light pollution, allowing us to see thousands of stars as we zip into the darkness. For those of you that have zipped with us before, zipping during the night provides a completely different experience. We especially encourage our past participants to come Master the zip lines in the dark to discover the mysterious nocturnal side of the Smoky Mountain Forest.
We Believe that your experience with us is one that is life impacting and unforgettable. All participants are welcome to come experience this new challenge with us next Spring!
Due to winter weather, we have put a temporary hold on offering night tours. With the success we had this October, we are thrilled to announce that Night Zipping will return this upcoming Spring of 2013. So the next time you come and visit the Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge area, be sure to check us out!
Until next time!
Challenge. Learn. Inspire. Master. Believe.
