World’s first cable-to-rail zipline roller coaster opens in Tennessee
Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud Show & Adventure Park in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. has officially opened the Flying Ox, the world’s first cable-to-rail zipline roller coaster.
The Flying Ox zipline roller coaster takes riders on a 1,000-foot-long ride 80 feet in the air above Lumberjack Square. Instead of traveling in just a straight line, riders will wind, drop, and soar through the air at 15 miles per hour.
The new attraction was inspired by the local history of the logging industry and is just one of many new offerings found in the lumberjack-themed adventure park that opened in late 2018.
“With the addition of the Flying Ox, Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud Show & Adventure Park is the only location in the world where thrill-seekers can ride a cable-to-rail zipline roller coaster,” said Josh Mayberry, vice president of marketing. “Lumberjack Square strives to provide a unique experience where guests can watch a lumberjack show [and] then try their hand at some of the competitive events they see performed by the professional lumberjacks.”
