Experience the world's largest zip-line -- it's 5,330 feet of sheer adrenalin, and taller than the Empire State Building.
Your adventure begins when you board a gondola for a scenic ascent to the top of the mountain.
Once you reach your destination make a short walk to the zip-line launch area. At 1,300 feet above sea level you will climb into a special harness seat and await your launch. Since you "sit" in the harness, your hands are free to record your flight (but hold on as you approach the landing). Six guests launch at once, and it's a race to the bottom. You're off, accelerating to up 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.
The ZipRider concludes with a brake-activated landing on the beach back at Icy Strait Point. Your fellow cruisers (not as brave as you) will be at the Drop Zone to welcome you back to earth. Unlimited rides on the mountain gondola are included to enjoy the scenic views from this lofty perspective.
Please note: Guests with back or neck problems and pregnant women are not allowed to participate. The ZipRider landing can be somewhat abrupt; all photographic devices must have a lanyard so participants are able to hold on to the harness. Minimum weight is 75 lbs; maximum weight is 275 lbs. Minimum height is 4' 4"; maximum height is 6' 8.
