PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. – The world’s first cable-to-rail zipline roller coaster has officially opened.

It’s called the Flying Ox and you can ride it at Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud Show & Adventure Park in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains.

According to a press release, the coaster takes riders on a 1,000-foot-long ride about 80 feet in the air.  Instead of traveling in a straight line, riders wind, drop and soar through the air at approximately 15 miles per hour.

The Flying Ox reportedly combines the thrill of ziplining with the track features of a roller coaster.
