It’s best to learn the ropes (and brakes) on a shorter zipline that’s not too high off the ground. On Oahu, beginners and children can get accustomed to the fun at Coral Crater Adventure Park in Kapolei.
Get ready. It’s time to put yourself on the line and fly like a bird over picturesque peaks and dynamic naturescapes. All of life’s troubles will seem small from so high up. A zipline tour is as safe as it is thrilling, so hop on and enjoy the ride.
Whether you’re just learning your lines, or have your own zip code, there’s a perfect way to hang tight in Hawaii.
Once you’ve got the hang of things, head to Skyline Eco Adventures in East Maui. You’ll be flying at 45 mph over 90 foot drops on the slopes of Haleakala.
When you’re really ready to fly high, zip directly over the 250 foot Kolekole waterfall and a 400 foot deep ravine in Akaka Falls State Park on Hawaii Island.
Dress for success. Wear form-fitting clothing, and closed-toe shoes.
Ziplines have various weight and age restrictions. Check with the zipline company to find out what they are.
If your child is too light for a solo flight, try a tandem zipline.
On Oahu, you’ll find the best ziplining options for children and families. All ages and levels of expertise can line up.

On Kauai you can really feel the rush as you reach top speeds on ziplines surrounded by nature in its purest form.
“Life is like a zipline. It’s over before you know it, and you don’t remember much because it happened so fast.”
