The Smoky Mountains hardly need another reason for tourists to flock to them. But, sure enough, they have one.

On your next trip to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge or both, are you going to take a ride on the world's first ZIP LINE ROLLER COASTER?

The new coaster is open in Pigeon Forge at Paula Deen's Lumberjack Feud Show & Adventure Park.

I have never been on a zip line and I just rode a roller coaster for the first time in 45 years when I was up in Minneapolis at Mall of America.

But I have to say, this sounds mighty intriguing. I told Chad about it and he is READY to go.

It's called the Flying Ox (great name) and is 1,000 feet long and will take you 80 feet into the air.

WLWT-Cincinnati says it's officially the first "cable-to-rail zip line roller coaster" in the world.

Riders will not travel in a straight line but will whip through the air--winding, dropping, and soaring--at about 15 miles per hour.
