Hawaii Offers Over a Mile of Zip Line Adventures
Five zip lines are combined with a giant swing for a half day experience.
Maui’s unique combination adventure tour has been taken up another notch. The tour begins with a signature 360’ long suspension bridge, Hawaii’s largest suspension bridge. The five dual track Zip lines with comfortable harnesses allow a user to enjoy the expansive views of neighboring islands and their zip partner. With lines of varying lengths: 985 ft, 525 ft, 2,060 ft, 835 ft and 1,615 ft, this tour provides customers more than a mile of zipping.
Of the Giant Swing, promoters say "it will take you back and unleash your inner child." The two person Swing pulls guests up to a maximum height of 40 feet and then you self-release down and across the valley. This allows the guest to experience the thrill of free fall while enjoying breath-taking views of West Maui and Lanai.
The Giant Swing’s new location is steps away from an 1,400-elevation observation deck from which guests can enjoy epic views and cheer on their new friends in style.
The Giant Swing element is said to be unique to the islands, with no comparable zip line or adventure course in Hawaii. Go Zip/Experimental Resources, Inc invented the “Giant Swing” – in which over 45 are in operation across the United States.
This experience is about 4 hours long and the $199 price (per person, plus tax) includes a gourmet picnic lunch. Reservations are required. Guests must be at least 10 years old and weigh 60-250 lbs to participate. Other restrictions and limitations may apply.
