MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A proposal to install a zipline tour across the Wolf River harbor to a new outdoor activities facility at Mud Island River Park will be considered by a City Council committee.

A group called The Forge Memphis, which includes Memphis communications and architecture figures Doug Carpenter and Frank Ricks, is scheduled to present the proposal Tuesday morning.

According to documents submitted to the city, plans include two Skybridge Zipline Tours, and an aerial challenge course, climbing walls and dining area in Mud Island River Park. Other outdoor activities are planned including axe throwing, outdoor rescape rooms, festivals, races and scavenger hunts.

The first zipline tour will carry guests 500 feet over the Wolf River Harbor toward the Memphis skyline. The second zipline tour will carry guests almost a quarter of a mile over the Wolf River Harbor that speeds up to 50 miles per hour and landing near the Mississippi River model’s Gulf of Mexico.

A similar facility called The Forge: Lemont Quarries currently operates in the Chicago area.

The Forge Memphis says in its presentation that the project would be a $10 million private investment that would be “the catalyst for activating Mud Island.” They estimate it could bring 100,000 visitors a year.

“We are ready for construction and anticipate a 9-10-month period with possibilities to sync with Tom Lee Park’s official grand opening next summer,” said The Forge Memphis co-founder Katie Elizabeth Carpenter. “We look forward to advancing this vision with the City and Memphis River Parks Partnership.”

Mud Island River Park opened in 1982 in downtown Memphis. It has garnered renewed attention from the city lately, after years of disinvestment in its monorail, museum, amphitheater and other facilities.

The Forge Memphis also plans to design educational programming for school field trips, youth summer camps and professional development team outings.
