*********zip stream--a "new adventure above the rest" with a never-before-seen view of the Scenic City from the tree tops at Ruby Falls! This is the first adventure experience of its type to hit Tennessee! This challenge is made up of suspended obstacle courses built in trees that include ladders, nets, walkways, bridges, tunnels and zip lines!
A ZIPstream course gets the adrenaline pumping and allows people to step out of their comfort zones and experience things they never believed they could do. And it's great fun!
**********Lantern tours---This intimate experience allows visitors a rarely seen view deep within Lookout Mountain. Limited sized tours begin with a 260-foot elevator ride into the mountain. Upon arrival, there will be no staged lighting in the cave. Select members of the group will be equipped with a small hand-held electric lantern and the tour guide will have a fueled inspector's lantern. As your eyes adjust to the low light, you will begin to see remarkable sites, dancing shadows, and feel a sense of mystery looking into the darkened path ahead.
The Ruby Falls Lantern Tour is not only a visually stimulating experience but it also a storytelling trip. As mysterious shadows dance on underground walls, your guide will share tales of folklore, stories of unexplained phenomena, as well as details on the rich history and geology of the Ruby Falls Cave.
The highlight of the tour is at Ruby Falls, as the waterfall is illuminated through the use of a lantern and pulley system.
