World’s First Cable-to-Rail Zipline Roller Coaster Opens in Pigeon Forge

Flying Ox Zipline Roller Coaster

Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud Show & Adventure Park, in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, has officially opened the Flying Ox! This is the world’s first cable-to-rail zipline roller coaster. The one-of-a-kind Flying Ox zipline roller coaster takes riders on a thrilling 1,000-foot-long ride 80 feet in the air. Instead of traveling in a straight line, riders wind, drop, and soar through the air at approximately 15 mph. The Flying Ox combines the thrill of ziplining with the track features of a roller coaster into one family fun attraction!

The new attraction was inspired by the history of the local logging industry. It is just one of several experiences located in the lumberjack-themed adventure park that opened in late 2018. Guests also can enjoy scenic views from the attraction’s 80-foot-tall observation tower.

“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 show then try their hand at some of the competitive events they see performed by the professional lumberjacks.”


Additional Attractions 

Guests can also experience a log roll and boom run while secured by harnesses that keep above the water. A lumberjack-themed ropes course, speed climb towers, and a simulated free-fall are also offered. This free fall begins at an 80 foot tall jump platform. In the coming months, the park will be adding springboard chop and cross-cut saw attractions. The park can accommodate groups of up to 400 per hour and is also open daily rain or shine. Guests can purchase tickets at the Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud box office in Pigeon Forge or online.
