This unique action-packed experience begins with a narrated bus ride through the Tlingit village of Hoonah and up to the summit of Hoonah Mountain, offering several scenic photo stops. Upon reaching the summit, a short walk leads to the launch area, located 1,330 feet above sea level - higher than the Empire State Building! Then you will be seated in a special harness to await your launch. Unlike anything you've ever experienced before, the ZipRider boasts six cables, allowing six riders to race to the bottom at the same time - great for families and friends.
Accelerating to 60 mph, the land drops away and you will be "flying" at 300 feet above the spectacular rainforest below. During this exhilarating ride, you will enjoy sweeping views of Port Frederick, Icy Strait and your cruise ship. The zip-ride ends with a gentle touchdown on the beach at the ziprider drop zone. Toast your adventure with a drink at the Duck Point bar before returning to your ship, options include locally brewed Cannery Red Ale, wine, soda, water or our famous Zipper Drop Shot.
