Attraction details
Owner description: Alaskan sized adventure! This is it, the world's largest zip-line: 5,330 feet long, 1,300 foot vertical drop, 60 mph maximum speed, 300 feet highest point from ground, 1.5 minute ride time! If you are looking for true adventure then the ZipRider is for you. Unlike anything you've seen before the ZipRider cable ride at Icy Strait Point is truly a once in a lifetime experience. Your adventure begins when you board your bus for the ride to the top the mountain. Your driver will narrate as you pass through the village of Hoonah and then up the mountainside. Once on top you will take a short walk to the launching area. At 1,300 feet above sea level you will sit into a special harness seat and await your launch. Six guests launch at once, and it is a race to the bottom! 3, 2, 1 and you're off, accelerating to 60 mph as you pass 300 feet above the treetops. If your eyes are still open you will see sweeping views of Port Frederick, Icy Strait and your cruise ship far below. Your ZipRide concludes with a break-activated landing on the beach back at Icy Strait Point.Participants must be between 90 and 275 pounds and be comfortable with heights. This ride is not recommended for individuals with back or neck problems, or who are pregnant. Photos will be available at the end of your ride!

“Fun Zip Line!”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

We did this Zip Line at Icy Strait Point and had a lot of fun! We got on a bus and drove through the town of Hoonah. The bus driver was fun and gave us a short tour of the town and told some local stories. The drive up the mountain was about 20 mins and then we did the zip line. The view is awesome from the top and the ride was pretty exciting! The only downside is that the ride is over before you know it. Quick ride, but it was fun! Wish I could do it again and would recommend it to others!

“Awesome experience”
Reviewed October 12, 2009

TripAdvisor has this listed as Icy Strait Point, Juneau Alaska, but this is not in Juneau. Hoonah (aka Icy Strait Point) is a separate location. None-the-less this ZipRider is worth the price. 5300 feet long with a 1300 foot drop. I would do it again ina heartbeat. Not to be missed if your cruise goes to Icy Strait Point.
