North Shore Zipline's site was once part of historic Camp Maui which served as the headquarters for the United States 4th Marine Division during WWII! You'll find interpretitve displays and a unique museum. "Maui's Marines" were the most highly decorated Marine Corp division of the war and their history is being brought to life through stories, images, videos, and World War II-era military vehicles at the recently opened Camp Maui Museum. This area once held 2100 tents, mess halls, movie theaters, a headquarters building, and a half-mile long airfield. Camp Maui has been recognized as a state of Hawaii Historic Site and the North Shore Zipline's preservation plan has been approved by the state!

Kevin's Activity Tips:
North Shore Zipline fills a nice niche as many families have been frustrate by the 12 year old minimum age on most zipline courses, or 230 pound weight limits for larger guests. Here at the North Shore Zipline children 5 and older and as light as 40 pounds may zip ... although they will need to go tandem with a guide And larger adults have more flexibility here too ... the maximum weight limit is the highest of any zipline course on Maui at 270 pounds. This course was not built to be the longest, or the fastest or the highest, butan all-around fun course that gives zippers a chance to do what they call "freestyle" zipping ... going upside down, spinning around, backwards, etc. There are other fun elements as well, including aerial platforms and several suspension bridges that stretch from tree to tree. One other advantage is that members of your party are able to watch some of the action from below as there is no admission fee to walk around at their course and several of the lines are within view for observers.
One other thought … since this is located near the start of the Road to Hana you could do the zipline first thing at 10am, be done by noon, and have the afternoon to visit Twin Falls or some waterfalls along the Road to Hana! You also could combine an afternoon zipline at 3pm or 3:45pm with a Molokini Snorkel trip earlier that morning! It is about a 40 minute drive from Maalaea Harbor to North Shore Zipline's location. A third possibility would be to do an early afternoon timeslot at 1pm or 1:45pm and then drive up to the summit of Haleakala to watch a sunset!
