Scenic Mountain Ascent & World’s Largest ZipRider
Take in the views on the ride to the top, then race to the bottom on the world’s largest ZipRider!
Icy Strait Point features the world's largest ZipRider, with six 5,330’ ziplines dropping 1330’. After launching, you will quickly accelerate to speeds exceeding 60 mph as you soar 300 feet above the rainforest below. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind experience, then the ZipRider is for you. With up to six guests descending at once, this is also a great family or group activity!
Your adventure begins when you board your bus for the scenic drive to the top of 1550’ Hoonah Mountain. Your driver will narrate as you pass through the village of Hoonah and then up the mountainside. Keep a watch out for wildlife! Deer, eagles, and bears are occasionally seen. Several overlooks offer spectacular vantage points of Hoonah, Port Frederick, and Icy Strait. On clear days, you can see the towering peaks of Glacier Bay National Park in the distance!
Once on top, you will take a short walk through towering old-growth rainforest to the launching area. Upon reaching the tower, you will be given a safety briefing and organized into groups of six. After being seated and secured in a special harness, you will prepare for take-off. As you race down the zipline, your initial surge of adrenaline will be replaced by genuine appreciation of the magnificence of the local scenery. Your ZipRide will conclude with a break-activated landing on the beach back at Icy Strait Point.
