You Can Walk A 800-Foot Suspension Bridge At This Mountain Top Theme Park In Tennessee
Not for those scared of heights.
Mountain top views are always some of the best views you'll ever experience, but the trek up to the summit is always challenging or nearly impossible. This theme park in Tennessee is located on top of the Smoky Mountains, but don't worry because you can take a ride to the top.
Anakeesta Theme Park is nestled right in the heart of Gatlinburg, Tennessee in the Smoky Mountains. The park is located on the top of the mountain, so you have to take a gondola ride to just get up to it. You pretty much get to enjoy a ride before you get to the actual attractions.
From zip-lines and mountain coasters to gem mining and a suspension bridge, this place has everything to keep you entertained all day long.
Stepping into this, you'll feel like you entered some storybook fairy tale. With forest and treetops all around you, you're in for a magical adventure. It takes approximately 14 minutes to get to the top of the mountain in your open-air (or enclosed) gondola.
Being so high, the first thing you'll notice when you get to the top is the 360-degree view of the city. If you are a fan of thosethat swing back and forth when you walk on them, you'll be excited to know that there is one here. The Treetop Skywalk is 50 to 60 feet in the air and has 16 connected bridges that total 800 feet to the other side.
Other daredevil experiences include the dueling zip-line that will let you race an opponent to see who can get to the bottom first. You'll have to conquer a few repealing courses in the middle of your journey, so this isn't for the faint of heart.
If you love mountains, amazing views and a little bit of a thrill, this spot would be the perfect place to spend a weekend at and let your wild side let loose.
