Take an exhilarating ride on the world’s largest ZipRider. Enjoy an adrenaline-pumping second ride down, or choose any number of exciting activities, including sightseeing tours, a wildlife and bear search, tribal dance demonstrations and more.
Start with a commentated drive through the village of Hoonah and up to the top of the mountain. After a short walk to the launching area, you and five other guests will take off together, dropping 1,330 feet over a mile of cable, accelerating to as much as 60 miles per hour. Your ZipRide concludes with a brake-activated landing on the beach.
After, choose a second adventure to enrich your visit: Search for wildlife and bears in Spasski River Valley. Learn about tribal dances and cultural legends of the region. Take a tram ride through the forest. Enjoy a sightseeing tour of the quaint fishing village of Hoonah, where a thriving community of indigenous Tlingit people resides. Or, if you didn’t get enough of your adrenaline-filled ZipRider experience, hop on a later departure for another thrilling ride.
