1. The Gatlinburg Sky Lift

These iconic, yellow, open-air chairs head from the top of Crockett Mountain to an 1,800 ft overlook—giving you and your crew a stunning view of the Great Smoky Mountains. If you’re feeling extra brave, you can also walk across the Gatlinburg SkyBridge, which at 680 feet across and 140 feet high at its midpoint, remains the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in all of North America. What’s more, the new SkyDeck and adjacent SkyCenter offer refreshments and relaxation amongst the wide-open mountain views, an added bonus that goes a long way after such exhilarating adventures.

7. The Outdoor Gravity Park

You can fly 6000 miles to go zorbing in New Zealand, but it’s much easier to rent an RV and head to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Haven’t heard of zorbing? Zorbers hop inside of an 11 ft by 11 ft ball and roll from the top of a 1000-foot hill all the way down to the bottom. It’s less of a tumble and more like a bouncy water slide or rolling jacuzzi. Make sure you bring your bathing suit!
