My two friends and I found a good discount for Zip Isle online and decided to give them a try while we were on the Hilo side of the Big Island earlier this week. Two of us had been ziplining before but the third hadn't and didn't know what to expect. The staff put all of us at ease and... More

I felt like the Zipline was designed for kids in mind. Not very thrilling for the adults. The jolting of the suspension bridge while people were walking over it was not appreciated and it was too narrow. Some people freaked out and all the guides just laughed and continued. And we didn't learn anything about the rain forest we were... More

We were excited to take our kids zip lining as we have done it in other places. The price was high (almost $700 for four of us) but we figured it would be worth it. It turned out that there are only 7 short zip lines on this course and we were done with the whole thing in less than... More

Warmest Aloha! It sounds like you had a special tour with your group and our guides. Usually our tours are two hours. Our guides are great. I appreciate you noticing. We really appreciate them sharing, not only their local lore and stories as most are from our area, but also the wonders of the plants in the botanical gardens that... More

Other than running 30 behind schedule (due to a very large party ahead of us) this experience was amazing. Our 8 year old daughter had the time of her life!

Our family of 6 had a great time on our zip line adventure with Zip Isle. The staff was great and very entertaining. My teenage kids loved this! I definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to zip line, especially if this is your first time doing so. Just remember to bring your mosquito repellant. Thanks for a great time!
