Kualoa is a 4,000-acre working cattle ranch stretches from the steep mountain cliffs to the sparkling sea. Kualoa Zipline will journey you through from dense rainforest and broad open valleys with views of beautiful white sand beaches to verdant cliff faces. Kualoa Ranch aims to enrich people’s lives by preserving our land and celebrating its history. The company vision is to be a role model as stewards of this special land by preserving, protecting and enhancing Hawaii’s natural beauty and culture, while developing recreational and agricultural enterprises that are compatible with the environment. Kualoa Ranch is located on the northeastern side of Oahu in the Hawaiian countryside, it is just 22 miles from Honolulu. If the views look familiar, it’s because Kualoa Ranch has been the site of many television shows and Hollywood films such as Jurassic Park, Windtalkers, Pearl Harbor, Godzilla, Tears of the Sun, 50 First Dates, Hawaii Five-O, Magnum P.I. and LOST. Ziplining takes place on the northern half of the ranch which includes Kaʻaʻawa Valley, containing most of the movie locations. The Zip & Dip combo includes a visit to their own “Secret Island” secluded beach.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

The Kualoa Zipline is also known as the Jurassic Valley Zipline. It’s appropriately named since you feel like you’re zipping through Jurassic Park (minus the dinosaurs, of course).  In a way, you actually are zipping through Jurassic Park since so many scenes from the movies have been shot at the ranch. There are 7 tandem ziplines on this course, which makes it particularly fun for friends, couples and families since two people go parallel to each other at the same time. You can take pictures of each other, or even make it competitive and see who makes it across first. If you decide to bring a camera on tour, make sure it has a strap to secure it to your body since the ranch is not responsible for dropped or damaged cameras. Stopping at the end of the line is a breeze since this course has an automatic braking system. It slows you down to a comfortable speed as you reach the platform for an easy landing. There is no age requirement for this Zipline per se, but make sure you pay attention to the height and weight requirements. They are very strict on these since those requirements are what is needed for the braking system to work properly and the harnesses to fit properly (both are kinda important). If you don’t want to risk bringing a camera, pictures are taken of each participant and are available for purchase at the end of the tour. The digital images are sent to your email if you decide to buy.

Along with the ziplines, there is some hiking on uneven terrain throughout the course, as well as 3 suspension bridges. Participants should be in moderately good shape to be able to enjoy this tour. Closed toed shoes are required for this activity, and we recommend long shorts or pants.

This is an extremely popular activity, so make your reservations well in advance. We recommend a month or more in advance, but no less than two weeks in order to secure an available time slot. Feel free to check in with us by phone, email or chat for availability during your stay before submitting a request.

Free lockers are available to store wallets, keys, etc. while you zip. Water stations are located along the zipline course, so you do not need to bring drinking water.

There are a few Combo options for the Zipline. If you decide to combine with another activity, pay attention to the requirements for the other activities as well. For example, the ATV and Horseback tours do have age requirements (16yrs for ATV and 10yrs for Horseback), so you want to make sure everyone in your party meets these requirements.
