Trading adrenaline rushes for folklore and magic at the Tennessee adventure park where wishes come true
Adrenaline pumps through my veins. I’d just conquered The Goliath at Foxfire Mountain Adventure Park in the Smoky Mountains. At 475 feet high, a half-mile long, and reaching speeds over 55 mph, The Goliath is one of the longest, highest, and fastest ziplines in the U.S.. Now, on our final zipline of the day, I catch a wave of bravery and find myself granting my guide, Tenisha Krouse, permission to flip me upside down like a trapeze artist and send me flying hundreds of feet above the ground.
