You know you are in for a thrill from the moment the tour begins as you cross the first valley on foot over a swinging suspension bridge. Don’t let the butterflies in your stomach stop you from crossing, because the first Hawaii zipline on this tour is the four person tandem zip – the only one in Hawaii! For families and friends, there is NOTHING that compares to sharing the excitement of this zipline tour with those closest to you. After a short briefing your Piiholo Ranch Zip Line guide will take you to the top of the first tower. This 4 person tandem zip is the shortest of the course over a gentle grassland. Be sure to take a look around at the top of the tower – there are some great views of the surrounding rainforest.
When your Maui Zip Line Tour group is finished with the first zip, you will take a short hike over to the 2nd course up a suspended rope bridge to another tower. The rest of the zip lines are two person. This zip is also your first over a valley. Don’t just look straight ahead – look around at the lush vegetation that covers the valley walls and floor. Keep your eyes open for wild animals, too.
The third zipline again starts with a climb up a rope bridge to another tower, and the line takes you back over the valley you just crossed. You can see the steep rock face on the other side that you just jumped off on the last zip! Juice, water, chips, and nature bars are available at the other end.
After your snack, a massive tower awaits – here is the difference between the four line course and the five line course. If you have chosen the four Maui Zip Line course, you will take a route over the valley back to the parking lot – an exciting zip that is a fitting end to these thrilling Hawaii Activities. The five line challenge course has a lot more in store for those adventurers. Number four is a quarter mile monster back to the other side of the valley.
At the end of number four on the Piiholo Ranch Zip Line Tour in Maui, you are at the bottom of Piiholo hill where a rugged four wheel drive transport will drive you to the top where the best view of the ranch, rainforest and valley awaits. There is no tower here – just a simple platform and a half mile zipline down the hill, over the valley, and back to the suspension bridge. As far as grand finales go, this half-mile Maui zip line is one of the best! Take the cannonball position to pick up some speed! It seems like time has stopped while you are on the line, the wind whipping around you, the landscape racing by under you. Surely this is what it must feel like to fly!
If these Hawaii Zip Line Tours sounds fun to you they are! There are some restrictions to consider. First, if you’re scared of heights, this might not be the best choice. Heights are part of the game. Second, you must be able to carry your harness (about 12 lbs) up the rope / platform bridges and while walking short distances. Third, you cannot weigh more than 275 lbs. You will have to step on a scale before the tour, so make sure you are under the limit. Finally, you must be at least ten years old to participate.Choose from a 4 Line Tour or a 5 Line Tour:
