On May 15, the Comedy Barn’s Danny Devaney successfully escaped from a straitjacket zipping along what is reportedly the tallest zip line in the South, the Goliath zip line at Foxfire Mountain Adventure Park in Sevierville, Tenn.
Billed “The Great Goliath Escape,” the stunt is reportedly the first such attempt in the world. The Goliath zip line is 475 feet high and 2,230 feet long. WATCH THE VIDEO
“We are excited to partner with The Comedy Barn Theater and this was a great way to invite people up to the park so they can witness the stunt first-hand,” said Stephanie Postlewaite, general manager.
Entertainment also included ventriloquist Stephen Knowles. Foxfire sits on 150 acres in the Smoky Mountains and includes 15 zip lines, an aerial ropes course, America’s longest swinging bridge that stretches 335 feet across Foxfire Gorge, an obstacle course, hiking trails, and river rafting.
