We know the problem with zip line rides. They just aren’t exciting enough.
Granted, that wouldn’t be the obvious sentiment from travelers around the world, but it must be what some of you think. Because Icy Straight Point offers the adrenaline-inducing intrigue of a zip line with the added adventure of a race.
YouTube channel Insider posted the following video that highlights one heck of a way to soak up the beauty of Alaska while also offering an opportunity to boast to your comrades that you are better at hanging helplessly from a zip line.
As the video shows, you can soar over some amazing views thanks to the ZipRider, which also features five other harnesses sitting perfectly nearby.
This is designed to make zip lining a group experience: “If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind experience, then the ZipRider is for you. With up to six guests descending at once, this is also a great family or group activity.”
Getting to the top and riding on down will take you about 1.5 hours. But you will come down knowing that the experience will have been archived for generations in the form of photos that you can receive at the nearby café.
If you want even more sizzle in your zip line steak, then you can opt for some other tours—one of which includes an ATV that will help you see the area while the other will introduce you to the local whale life.
Visiting a place like Hoonah, Alaska, means taking as much time as you can to take in all the surrounding beauty.
The ZipRider is one way to fit in all the sightseeing into one fell swoop.
