CORAL CRATER ADVENTURE PARK ZIPLINE AND TOWER CHALLENGE
Zipline You’ll enjoy all 6 lines of our signature Zipline Course where you’ll zip through trees, race on our tandem lines, and step off a 20-foot platform using an auto-belay system because who needs stairs? Adventure Tower Our Adventure Tower is a two-level jungle gym Challenge Course that measures a 60-foot height. The first level is 20 feet above the ground and the second level is double that at a skyrocketing 40 feet! With 18 challenge elements, you’ll feel like a winner after you navigate through ropes, walk across wobbly bridges, and surf on a rail all while suspended in the sky. There’s also a Three-Line Zipline Tour for $100 if you want the same epic experience but would prefer something a bit shorter and cheaper.
The Adventure Tower also consists of King Swing and Freefall. King Swing is a massive pendulum swing that will send you off into a spine-tingling swing into space! Our guide will slowly lower you to the ground after you’ve experienced the thrill of swinging high off the ground. Experience the sensation of a Freefall. This activity will bring you from the very top of the tower to the bottom with one courageous leap. Finish off your aerial adventure by giving our Climbing Wall a try. We have 4 unique routes to experience, so show off your skills and get to the top!
BAY VIEW ZIPLINE & MINI PUTT
The Bay View Zipline is the perfect day out for those who want the zipline experience but maybe not such a long/expensive tour. Bay View is the perfect place for a day out with the family where you can enjoy 18 holes of mini-putt golf and the 400ft zipline for just $40. Compared to the other zipline experiences on Oahu, which are approximately $160 per person, this is a great budget option. Of course, it is just one short zip line but the adrenaline rush is much the same! It’s a great option for a couple of hours of fun and for your first-ever zipline. The other great part about Bay View is that it’s much closer to Waikiki than the other operators so a much shorter drive.
I hope you enjoyed this Oahu Ziplining guide and it helped you select an awesome Oahu Zipline experience for you and your family!
