One of the longest active and most unique attractions in the Tennessee Smokies, Flyaway is the only place in the area to enjoy the safest form of skydiving there is. You go inside and jump into a simulated air space where, for several minutes, a large fan keeps you floating and experiencing what it’s like to fall freely through the sky without having any of the danger associated with doing so. No virtual reality here, you do a real jump and you really fly in the air for a while. You’ve got to try it out!
