Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Meet your guides, get a safety orientation and climb into your zip gear for the only all-dual-track zip course throughout Hawaii Island. Enjoy fast-changing ocean, river, gorge and waterfall views. You'll ride side-by-side along an 8-line course soaring from one sky-high platform to another. With your heart pumping you'll come to the end of the first line and the fully automatic self-regulating magnetic braking system will bring you to a safe and comfortable stop.

Catch your breath because there are 7 more runs, and each one is more spectacular than the last. Line 2 offers impressive views of Hilo Bay and Honolii River. Looking mauka (towards the mountain), you'll catch vistas of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, the two huge volcanoes that make up the bulk of the Big Island. Turn to the south and you'll be treated to views of smoke and steam rising from the Pu'u O'o vent of Kilauea Volcano.

Line 3 takes you along the river through a native Hawaiian rainforest and Line 4 reveals a double-tiered waterfall. At Hale Ho'onanea, or "house of peace", you'll enjoy light snacks, a beverage and access to the restrooms. Line 5 arrival and Line 6 departure share a platform, the tallest on the course! Start out over the tree-top canopy high above the river. Keep a sharp eye and you'll catch a glimpse of a beautiful hidden grotto complete with tropical waterfall. Then look to your right and view the river stretching out 200 feet below you.

Before you know it, you'll be racing your zip partner down an old logging road approaching the arrival platform before you hit the brakes. Walk down a few steps and across a short foot path to the departure platform of Line 7. Start zipping and the forest floor below you almost immediately falls away revealing the gorgeous river ravine 160 feet under your feet.

Several waterfalls reveal themselves as you pass a curve in the river affording amazing views both up- and downstream. Line 8 is the longest line of the course, close to 1/2 mile long! Reach it by traversing the fifth and final suspension element that connects Line 7 arrival to Line 8 departure. After a short zip across the peninsula, you drop right down into the river gorge. The sights and sounds envelope you as you take in the ride. You will travel directly down the middle of the river, soaring over several waterfalls and rapids. This is an amazing adrenaline rush which rewards you with a surprisingly gentle landing at the arrival platform. A few steps and a short uphill walk will bring you back to meet your transport back to Hale Halawai.
