Welcome to the world’s longest zip line ride! Unlike anything you've seen before, the ZipRider® zip line ride at Icy Strait Point is truly a once in a lifetime experience! The whole experience begins at Icy Strait Point where customers depart in the tour van and drive through the town of Hoonah. Customers are then driven 6 miles up the mountain to the top station of the ZipRider®. From here the cruise ship looks like a toy boat on the water. The view is absolutely spectacular! When the gates open, riders accelerate out and over a cliff and come as close to a pure flying experience as humanly possible. In front of you lies the panoramic view of Port Frederick and surrounding islands, racing 300 feet beneath you is the dense forest canopy, and Icy Strait Point grows larger and larger as you near the bottom. The typical ride takes 1 ½ minutes and concludes on the beach at Icy Strait. The typical comment from each customer when they reach the bottom is “That was the coolest thing I’ve ever done in my life.” Icy Strait Point proudly claims that their ZipRider offers “an experience of a lifetime.”
