Aerial Challenge Course
Aerial Challenge Course
Get off the ground in the Adventure Tower with our aerial challenge course.
Here you’ll be met with 18 challenge elements that will have you climbing, swinging and jumping around, high above the ground. This is one of the most engaging adventures offered in Hawai’i.
Afraid of heights? The Aerial Challenge Course is the perfect place to challenge yourself and triumph over your fears. You’ll be safely harnessed in so there’s no need to worry; just get out there and enjoy the exhilaration that the course delivers. This activity is perfect for those who want to challenge themselves and experience the success of completing obstacles in a safe and secure environment.
Please note that the Aerial Challenge Course tour does not include the entire tower assets such as the freefall, climbing rope, climbing ladder and climbing wall.

Those who do not reach this height requirement (and are at least 6 years old) are still encouraged to participate but will require an adult participant to lead them through the course (max 2 children per adult) or hire one of our guides to assist them through. Guides can be hired in the check-out process as an add-on option.

Check in time is 15 minutes before the tour time. Please arrive for this tour on time. No refunds will be issued for late arrivals or missed tours. We are a 40 minute drive from Waikiki. It could take up to an hour or longer in weekday afternoon traffic. Please check traffic conditions well in advance to ensure you are on time for your adventure. We do not offer transportation to and from the park for this tour.
Safety is our number one priority. Our harnesses, helmets, and double-locking clips are state of the art equipment that guarantees complete safety. When you are not on the zipline, you will be clipped into the static line at all times. Our ziplines feature the most modern braking system, which means that zipliners do not need to control their speed or stop themselves, allowing for all ages (within weight restrictions) and abilities to take part in this activity. These systems are tried and true to life-safe standards. Our expert guides are with you throughout the adventure, so leave your worries at home and come on out for an experience you’ll never forget!
We are about a 40 minute drive from Waikiki with no traffic. Afternoon weekday traffic may take over an hour so please check conditions well in advance. We are about a 15 minute drive from Ko Olina.

Chances of getting dirty on ATV are high so bring a change of clothes, towels and ponchos if you’re heading out to dinner afterwards!
Do you have food and drinks available?
We have food trucks in our parking lot that operate daily except Sundays. We also sell snacks in our gift shop.
How safe are the Zipline and Adventure Tower tours?
As with all activities, there are inherent risks associated with Zipling and the Adventure Tower. Our course surpasses the Association for Challenge Course (ACCT) standards and pre-use inspections on both the safety equipment and course occur daily. Extensive training for our guides are provided by Synergo, a Professional Vendor Member (PVM) of the ACCT. Synergo also completes our periodic course inspections.
What is your cancellation policy?
Individuals and groups can cancel 24 hours or more before the start of their tour for a full refund. Tours cancelled within 24 hours of the tour will not be refunded.
I’ve never been zipling before, do I need experience?
The beauty of our tours are that you do not require any previous experience or skills. Our friendly and professional guides will help you through your entire experience, from providing you with well fitting safety equipment, to leading you through the course.
I am pregnant. Can I go on your tour?
Congratulations! However, for safety reasons, we don’t recommend pregnant women participate in any of our tours. Please come join us in the future.
How physically fit do I need to be?
You need to be reasonably fit to enjoy our tours. There is some walking involved between some of the zip lines as well as a stretch which includes a short incline. Some of the walking paths may have loose footing and roots/rocks. Our tours are not recommended for people with back or neck injuries or for those with difficulty walking. You will need to be capable of carrying 15 pounds for the duration of your tour. Coral Crater reserves the right to cancel your tour if we are concerned about your physical well being.
My children are under 60 lbs., is there any way they can go ziplining?
Yes, it is possible for children 40-60 lbs. to tandem with a guide. Due to safety reasons they cannot tandem with anyone other than our guides. Generally if a child is under 50lbs they will have to go tandem with a guide. Those over 50lbs we encourage to go alone.
I see that the minimum height is 4’6″ for the Adventure Tower, what if my child is under 4’6″?
Our safety equipment requires participants to be 4’6″ or taller to independently navigate the Adventure Tower. Participants who are under 4’6″ are still welcome to participate but need to be accompanied by an adult participant who can perform necessary safety tasks.
My child wants to do the Adventure Tower but I do not want to accompany him/her. Is there still a way to participate in this tour?
A trained guide can be arranged to accompany those under 4’6″ by selecting the add-on option at check-out.
What if some of my family do not want to participate?
We understand that sometimes a few members of your party prefer to play the role of spectator or are not big enough to participate. For those people, we have a beautiful turfed area with picnic tables they are welcome to relax on while other members of the group are out getting their thrills.
What if it’s raining?
We run all tours, rain or shine. Conditions such as high winds and lightning may require us to suspend and reschedule your tour.
Do I tip my guide?
As with any tours/service, it is customary to tip your guides if you are pleased with your service. We now accept cash, credit cards, venmo or cashapp for gratuity.
Do I get a refund if I crash an ATV?
No. Most definitely not. If you drive responsibly, you will not crash an ATV. If you drive recklessly, you will be removed from the tour. If you crash before your guide can remove you from the tour, you will be responsible for all damage to the vehicle and will not be refunded the cost of your touer.
Climb + zip your way through the trees!

Fun Family Bonding
This was a great family adventure. Both kids (13 and 16) worked together, helped each other but also completed the adventures at their own pace and style. The staff was kind, patient and engaging, They followed the safety protocols.
