PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WTHR) – The world's first cable-to-rail zipline roller coaster has officially opened at Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud Show & Adventure Park in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains.

The zipline roller coaster, called the Flying Ox, takes riders on a 1,000-foot-long ride about 80 feet in the air above Lumberjack Square.

Riders will wind, drop, and soar through the air at about 15 mph.


The Flying Ox combines the thrill of ziplining with the track features of a roller coaster into one family fun attraction.

“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 Vice President of Marketing Josh Mayberry. “Lumberjack Square strives to provide a unique experience where guests can watch a lumberjack show then try their hand at some of the competitive events they see performed by the professional lumberjacks.”

A lumberjack-themed ropes course, speed climb towers, and a simulated free-fall from an 80-foot-tall jump platform are also offered. In the coming months, the park will be adding springboard chop and cross-cut saw attractions.
