Big Island Zipline Tour FAQs:

Is zipling difficult?

Kohala Zipline on the Big Island of Hawaii doesn’t require intense physical exertion, although the course includes a short uphill trail hike. Our canopy tour guides will clip you securely into your harness, provide a detailed safety briefing, and give clear hands-on instructions throughout the tour.

What happens if I decide I don’t want to zip anymore? How do I get down?

 Zipline tours are adventures, by definition unusual, exciting, and somewhat daring. Kohala Zipline on the Big Island of Hawaii accommodates participants who want to try a canopy tour only to find out that it’s not for them. You’ll have a chance to explore your comfort zone during your first two short tree-based zips, after which you have an option to exit the course at Platform Three before our zips get bigger and faster. While it is technically possible to exit at any time during the Kohala Canopy Tour, doing so may delay fellow participants in your and even in subsequent groups. Keep in mind, your safety and comfort are top priority for our guides.

How safe are ziplines?

At Kohala Zipline on the Big Island of Hawaii, participant safety comes first. Our elevated platforms are engineered and tested to exceed twice the maximum limit on working loads. They are built into trees with strict structural integrity. The course incorporates redundant safety systems in design elements and daily operations. Kohala Zipline complies with or exceeds all standards of the Association for Challenge Course Technologies (ACCT).
