This action-packed, 1.5-hour experience begins with a ride on the state-of-the-art SkyGlider Mountaintop Gondola from the base of Icy Strait Point, ascending to the top of Hoonah Mountain. Upon reaching the summit, a short walk leads to the launch area, located 1,330 feet above sea level-higher than the Empire State Building! You'll be seated in a special harness to await your launch. Unlike anything you've ever experienced before, the ZipRider® allows six riders to race to the bottom at the same time-great for families and friends. As you accelerate to 60 mph, the land drops away, and you'll be "flying" at 300 feet above the spectacular rainforest below. During this exhilarating ride, you'll enjoy sweeping views of Port Frederick, Icy Strait and your cruise ship. The ZipRider ends with a gentle touchdown on the beach at the water's edge. Return to port after this adrenaline-fueled activity. Unlimited rides on the mountaintop gondola are included to enjoy the scenic views from this lofty perspective at your leisure.
