The Tower ZIP Ride and Climbing Tower are two new features now open at Ruby Falls ZIP stream Aerial Adventure, all in the natural setting of the treetops with something for everyone! This adventure course offers a great view of Chattanooga 1200 feet above sea level and is open daily through August 9th, from 9 am to 6 pm, with the Tower ZIP Ride open until 8 pm.

In addition to the Orange, Green and Blue Diamond Courses already at ZIP stream, the Tower ZIP Ride offers guests a zip line experience without the ropes course elements. That’s 700 feet of round trip zipping! The three-sided, 40-foot Climbing Tower is also new onsite, with five routes of varying difficulty.

ZIP stream’s self-directed courses for children, youth and adults allow participants to move through a series of fun, exciting and increasingly challenging tree-to-tree activities. The current courses are made up of suspended obstacles built in trees that include ladders, nets, walkways, bridges, tunnels and zip lines!

Ruby Falls ZIP stream is operated by The Adventure Guild ( In maintaining the Ruby Falls mission of environmental responsibility, no electricity is used on the course except lights. Green Globe member Ruby Falls is proud to feature LED lighting throughout the castle and waterfall. Ruby Falls is a Chattanooga, TN attraction that is home to the tallest and deepest underground waterfall accessible to the public in the United States. It is the first US attraction to have received the dual Green Globe/Green Certification by Green Globe International, Inc. Go to for more or for info on Ruby Falls ZIP stream Aerial Adventure!
