Next time you go ziplining in Tennessee, search for these!

A nice summer breeze; spending time with friends and family; trying new things; doing all of this a few stories off the ground? Sounds crazy, right? Wrong. This is something people experience every day on zip lines around the globe.

Here in Ocoee, Tennessee we provide you the unique opportunity to experience something that you’ll never forget without leaving Tennessee. Over the years of our operation, we have formulated a list of the four types of zipliners we see and how to spot them. See where you fall!

A Nervous Nancy at the start, and an Adrenaline Junkie by the end!

The Nervous Nancy
We all know someone who is nervous about trying new things even when these things are small like driving on the interstate. We can spot them from a mile away. They’re quiet, a little shaky, very serious. They always hesitate… at first, as soon as they take that first leap of our first tower they never look back! It all comes back to taking a step of faith, or in this case a leap.

The Adrenaline Junkie
These are the easiest to spot. They’re probably jumping up and down, talking nonstop and they just can’t wait to get on the lines. These people live on the edge and enjoy things like skydiving and white water rafting. They will do anything to find that next thrill and it shows on their face.

Can you say adrenaline junkie?

The Seasoned Pro
This is someone who knows the ins and outs of ziplining. They know what to expect and aren’t afraid to let others know. They bring a unique twist to a trip because they can pump up the adrenaline junkies and calm down the nervous Nancy’s.

Any guesses on what category this zipliner falls into?

The Inexperienced Experiencer
This is someone who loves trying new things but with very little know-how about what they are doing. They dive head first kind of like the adrenaline junkie but they don’t seek the thrill. Instead, they want the experience. They want to be able to say, “I did that!”

The list isn’t exhaustive but these are the 4 types of zipliners we see most often here at Ocoee Zipz. Where do you fall?
