- If someone told me I would be writing a family fun article on zip lining I never have believed it! A week ago I was relaxing on the beach in Hawaii enjoying our spring break vacation, when my son and some friends thought it would be fun to go on a zip lining adventure while we were on the Big Island. Now, I was perfectly happy to stay ‘on campus’ lounging comfortably by the pool and snorkeling at beach, but I was quickly overruled.
The aerial course took three hours to complete, it includes wooden bridges, repelling off platforms, and nine ziplines progressing in length as the course went along. My twelve year old son took to the course with ease and without fear, me on the other hand, I am quiet sure my high pitched shrieks as I zipped along the forest sounded similar to that of a wounded monkey.
