Way back in June I bought Admiral a Groupon to go ziplining as a father's day gift. It was a voucher for two that expired the Saturday after my brother's wedding so we kept trying to plan a day to go but it never quite worked out. We finally got to go the week after the wedding and guys, it was so much fun!
I was scared. I'm terrified of heights but it was also exciting. There were six lines, the first two were kind of like practice runs. The third they wanted us to let go and "fly like a birdie" which I was too scared to do but on the fourth line we got to hang upside down which was the most fun thing ever! They hooked us onto the line and then had us lie down on our back on the platform and put our feet up on the rope. Then they pushed us off and we could let go with our hands and just fly upside down for about 10 seconds. Of course we had to be upright by the end but the line was actually a lot longer than it looked so there was plenty of time to right ourselves and come in safely.
The fifth line was a tandem line and Dad and I got to go down together, then the last line actually had two lines and they told us to race. I threw myself off the platform as hard as I could and for awhile I was actually in the lead but then just before the end Dad shot ahead of me and won. Oh well. It was a super fun time.
We made a whole day of it. We drove up to Sevierville early, in Dad's convertible, stopped for lunch, and then after the ziplining we went shopping for cupcake decorating supplies. I would highly recommend going ziplining if you have a chance. It's an exhilarating experience.
