TELL US ABOUT ZIP LINING IN OAHU.
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!!!!!
