Ziplash, the largest zip line in Northeast Tennessee, is now open. Located two miles south of Bristol Motor Speedway, the zip line is more than 1,000 ft. long and 40 ft. high and is an adrenaline-inducing ride for thrill seekers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Tickets are $15 and any additional zips will be $5. An all-day pass is $35. The zip line is open Saturdays noon to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 1-8 p.m. There are special rates for birthday parties, scout groups, company retreats, family reunions, field trips and more for $225.   

The Stickley Farm in Bluff City is a third generation family farm that has been operating since the late 1930s. The family opened the farm to the public in 2006 so the public could spend a fun afternoon while learning about agriculture.
