If you’re looking for adventure on your Hawaiian vacation, you must try ziplining in Oahu. Soar above lush jungle landscape and view the island from hundreds of feet in the air. You won’t find a Waikiki zipline, you’re going to have to travel outside of the tourist zone, but trust me it’s worth it! Below are the different adventure parks and locations for ziplining in Oahu.
Kualoa Ranch Ziplines
The “Jurassic Valley Zipline” tour at Kualoa Ranch is considered by many as the best zipline in Oahu. This is more than just a zipline ride. You will spend 2.5 hours hiking, crossing suspension bridges, viewing famous movie locations, and of course ziplining. The ziplines range from 200 feet to a quarter mile in length!
Climb Works Zipline Oahu
Climb Works at Keana Farms is home to the Oahu’s longest zipline, the Kahuku zipline. Climb Works offers a 3-hour guided north shore zipline tour that includes 8 world-class ziplines (up to half a mile long), rappels, sky bridges, and more. Expect to pay $150-200 per person for the zipline tour.
Coral Crater Adventure Park
The Coral Crater Adventure Park is the only zipline in Kapolei, on the west side of Oahu. You can ride the ziplines as part of the aerial challenge course, or separately. Coral Crater has six ziplines ranging from 600-900 feet. Zipling tours cost between $100-250 per person.
Bay View Mini-Putt and Zipline
If you want a zipline experience for smaller children, you may consider the Bay View mini-putt and zipline. The 400 ft. zipline at the Kaneohe Bay View mini golf location is a great alternative to other expensive zipline tours in Oahu. For about $40, you can purchase a package of 3 rides.

5 Tips for Ziplining in Oahu
Compared to other “extreme sports,” ziplining is very safe. However, there are some considerations with ziplining in Oahu. Here are a few tips to prepare:
- Book in Advance
Ziplining in Oahu is a very popular attraction. You may need to book weeks in advance in order to secure a spot!
- Avoid Extremely Windy Days
Most ziplines will run in all weather, including rain. Hawaii always has a 5-10 mph breeze, which is nothing to worry about. However, high winds can cause a zipline attraction to be suspended. Check local weather before booking a ticket.
- Not Recommended if Pregnant or have Heart Conditions
When you ride a zipline, it is exhilarating, even terrifying. Riding a zipline can dramatically increase your heart rate. Take this into account if you are pregnant or have other health conditions.
- Wear Comfortable Clothes
When you ride a zipline you are put into a harness around your legs and waist. Bring a change of clothes that is appropriate for ziplining (shorts and pants vs dresses and skirts).
- Child Supervision
Most zipline tours will not allow a child to be unaccompanied. Be prepared to purchase adult tickets, even if you don’t want to ride the zipline.
