Zip Lining in Oahu, U.S.A by a 10-Year-Old

Oahu, Hawaii Is A Wonderful Family Travel Destination. From the Most Beautiful Beaches to Adventurous Activities, You Won’t Be Short of Things to Do. Here Is an Account of a World Class Zip Lining Experience in Oahu as Told by A 10-Year-Old Little Globetrotter.

My name is Hannah and I’m 10 years old.

Oahu, Hawaii, U.S.A

As you might know my family and I went to Hawaii. We went to the country USA, the state of Hawaii, the island of Oahu and the city Honolulu. We went for 2 weeks and had TONS of fun! We stayed at the Ilikai hotel which are apartments too.

My favorite part of the trip was the zip line course. It was SCARY! But as we did more we got less scared.

Let me explain what happened. So we went on their website and booked the zip line. It asked if we wanted transport to come and pick us up. We put no because we already rented a car. We get there and they asked us to sign in on these ipads. They saw mum typing and asked “are you Amy Chung”? “Yes I am” said my mum the ladies at the counter said “we had a van waiting outside ilikai hotel for you”, Mum said “we did not want to take the transport so we said no on the form on your website”.

So we ended up being 10 minutes late and missed the beginners zip line. But still got time to get the harness on and go. When we get there we realise we had to start on the BIG zip line which was not good for me or mum because mum is scared of heights and I am ok with heights. This course was 7 zip lines. It was very high it is 15 stories high. So long when the person would jump of you could not see the from the other end.

On the way we had some challenges, like a thing were you step off the platform and you hold on to the rope and just fall slowly. Then we had one were you are on the bottom this time and you hook your harness to the rope and pull yourself up. Our last one was the same as the first one but the drop is way faster. We also had multiple bridges.

Over all it was a fun day. There was a lady who took photos of everyone and at the end there was an ipad where the photos were so after getting drinks we went to have a look, but the only problem is you had to pay for the photos and they were expensive. So we left and as we leave this lady comes up to us and asked “are you Amy right”? “Yeah” said mum then the lady said “ummm sorry for the mistake today we apologise for the mistake so for that we are giving the photos for free”, we said “yes thanks we would love to have them” and the lady said “it will be on someone else’s account but you can just delete them and keep the ones you want, but they will only stay for 30 days so if you don’t download them by then you will not be able to get them”. So after a 3 hour zip line we went home had a shower and saw the photos the photos were not the best but in the end we still took it anyways. We also took a GoPro and got some great footage too.

That was my highlight of the trip!!!!!

Photos seem to be so exciting that’s so great thing to have an experience and also doing something adventurous. Very nice picture and a great article. Would love to see more like this.

That’s a great experience you guys had. The photo came out to be too good. That’s the good deal you got that they gave you the photos for free. The 3-h ziplining might have been very exhausting but it looks completely fun to me.

What an interesting post! It sounds like you guys had a couple of hiccups but enjoyed your time. I’d love to visit Oahu (and Hawaii) so I’ll need to do some more research for next year!

This was a really interesting read! Interview with a 10 yr old and knowing things from their perspective is amazing. Oahu looks like the perfect spot for Ziplining

Thank you! She wrote that article herself. Love reading what kids love doing.

Sandy N Vyjay January 9, 2019 - 12:02 am

Loved reading the Zip-lining adventure from Hannah’s viewpoint. Suddenly could feel the excitement of a 10-year-old. Zip-lining is a very thrilling activity which we love too. Can see that both of you had a great time and enjoyed yourself.

Oh we sure did Sandy. I was soooooo scared but glad I did it!

Daniel January 7, 2019 - 10:44 pm

What an amazing adventure! Hannah seems like one brave girl- not too many 10-year olds would attempt this with a smile on their face. I’m glad to see you had an amazing time, Oahu is absolutely lovely 🙂

Thanks Daniel! She was super brave and we are not exaggerating how high the zip lines were. I am totally afraid of heights and she spent a lot of time encouraging me and making sure I was ok. Bless.

Hanna is such a brave girl! I probably would panic as I am afraid of heights just like her mom ! But sounds like they had incredible time! I went to Hawaii over a year ago and I felt in love! Its my favourite place in the world and I would love to go back as soon as possible.

Family Globetrotters January 8, 2019 - 3:45 pm

She sure was brave. Definitely braver than me and in fact she had to encourage me not to be scared. I was so proud of her! Yeah, we loved Oahu too. Nature at its best.

Nancie January 7, 2019 - 10:10 pm

Whan an adventure for a 10 -year-old! I don’t think I’d zipline if I went to Oahu, but I’m sure there would be lots to keep me busy. I’d be like you and rent my own car, so I’d be mobile.

Family Globetrotters January 8, 2019 - 3:44 pm

Having our own car in Oahu made a huge difference to our experience there. Its very hard not to have one.

Jane Dempster-Smith January 7, 2019 - 1:19 pm

I love this article. So cool to have the introduction by a 10 year old budding travel blogger who is so brave to have attempted it. Well done Hannah. Oahu sounds great fun.

Family Globetrotters January 8, 2019 - 3:44 pm

Thanks Jane! Trying to find an avenue for her to write more and thought this would be a good ways as she can talk about the things she loves doing. Oahu was super fun!
