What You Will Visit:
ZipRider® Thrill Ride
A 90-second thrill ride like no other! The Icy Strait ZipRider is the longest and highest ZipRider, located 1,330 feet above sea level, higher than the Empire State Building. The ZipRider offers a spectacular thrill ride experience with magnificent views. The ZipRider boasts six cables, which means that six riders, seated in a special harness can go at the same time, so prepare for a race to the bottom! Accelerating to 60 mph, participants "fly" an incredible 300 feet above the rainforest below and land gently on the beach.
What You See Along The Way:
Enjoy a scenic narrated drive through the delightful village of Hoonah before ascending six miles to the top of Hoonah Mountain. During your exhilarating 90-second ZipRider experience, take in sweeping views of Port Frederick, Icy Strait and your cruise ship. Keep an eye out for wildlife sightings as well!
As you drive to the top of Hoonah Mountain, photo stops will be made so that you may capture lovely images of Hoonah, Port Frederick and Icy Strait.
