The tour consists of eight world class dual ziplines, two rapels, four sky bridges and few other surprises making it the longest and most unique zipline on Oahu. Lines average over 1,000 feet including one that is nearly a half mile long. The 3-hour guided tour also includes a fun ATV adventure to the ridge top, stories of Hawaii's rich history, tastes of some of the local fruits and constant panoramic ocean and mountain views of Oahu's famous North Shore.
Lani T's Take
CLIMB Works offers a 3-hour guided zipline tour over a working farm in Laie. It has Oahu's longest ziplines ranging from 500 ft to nearly a half mile long! It has 8 dual lines with panoramic views of the North Shore from some of the lines.


We went on the guided zipline tour which they offer every 20 minutes. Booking an earlier tour allows you to beat some of the traffic to the North Shore in addition to avoiding the hot afternoon sun.

After we checked in, we were outfitted with a harness and a helmet. We all looked like seasoned mountaineers. All we needed was ice axes to complete the look. After the first introductory line, they took us on ATVs for a 2-mile ride up to the top. The ride was pretty bumpy so if you have a bad back, this might be a hard ride. From the second line at the top, we zipped on back to our starting point on 7 more lines. There was very little walking between lines. We crossed a couple of rope bridges along the way.


Each zipline was a little different from the previous one. On some, we had to rappel to a lower platform. On another, we had to pull ourselves up to the next platform. The guides were more than happy to help pull you up if you found it too difficult.


Before each ride, the guides taught us about the farm, Hawaiian culture, and history. And on some of the platforms, they provided us with fresh cherry tomatoes and apple bananas grown on the farm.


There is no doubt that zipping down a line at a high speed is thrilling. But what makes this tour special is that we rode to the top of the mountain where people would not normally get to see without hiking for hours. And everywhere you look, you see trees and plants. And there is a spectacular view of the North Shore beaches from several of the platforms as you zipped down.


On the last line, our guides told us to bravely to let go of the handle. We could hang upside down if we wanted or just sit back and enjoy the ride. It was a lot of fun just hanging by the harness with my arms and legs wide open, It felt like flying.


Climb Works zipline is fun for nearly all ages. There were a few youngster who rode along with the guide to provide the extra weight to make it across. However, a couple of the kids on the tour backed out because they were too afraid. All of the adults thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The tour is a fun and unique activity to experience on the North Shore.

It was AWESOME! What a great experience. It was a lot of fun! The tour guides are wonderful. We learned a lot of history about the Hawaiian culture during our experience. The views are amazing! Towards the end of the tour we got to try some of the fresh veggies that are grown on the farm. Before this trip I had never zip lined before, they were patient and explaining on what to expect to help calm the nerves. Super fun! Ready to go back and try the new lines that have been opened since.

Ziplining is downright fun. And CLIMB Works knows how do it well. From the beginning, they streamlined the check-in process using iPads to sign waivers, which saves paper, and makes it easy to get things going. The guides were friendly and helpful when the harnessed us up. The ride up the muddy road to the first platform was an adventure in and of itself. We were slipping and sliding up steep sections, but the vehicle managed to make it up safely. I’m not a backroads 4WD guy, so I wasn’t used to this type of action, but the driver was competent since he got us to the top safely.

The platform towers for the ziplines appeared solid and well built. When we were getting ready to zip, our guides were conscientious to make certain our harnesses were attached well. Their concern for safety was reassuring.

It was cool how the ziplines crossed from one platform to another. Maybe because I’m lazy and didn’t want to hike between towers, but mostly because there were mini activities between lines. For instance, at one tower, we had to use a pulley system to ascend to the top of the platform. It was easy pulling myself up at first, I was confidently doing the hand-over-hand method. But about half way up I tired out and did the double-hand pull, which is wimpier.

It was exhilarating on the longest zipline because of the speed. We were told that we’d approach 60 MPH, and it felt like it. It all goes by quickly though, so I had to balance shooting the experience with my GoPro with being present and enjoying it. But, I’m glad I made the effort to shoot it because now I can relive it again and again.

I would recommend CLIMB Works for fun North Shore activity. The runs are fun, the scenery beautiful, and the system safe.

There were 10 of us in our group and 3 young and strong guides who attached us to the line and caught us at the other end. There was no hand breaking which I appreciated. The guides who caught us when we were coming in did all the work for us. So it was easy and all we had to do was enjoy the ride and the view. The platforms and lines look pretty new and sturdy.

They have a couple of rope bridges that I thought were very cool. They looked sturdy and well made so I wasn't scared of walking across them. Rappelling down was something I enjoyed a lot. I think they really try to make this an educational and enjoyable experience. The fresh tomatoes and bananas grown on site were so delicious.

The tour was run very efficiently having us going down two at a time side by side. It was fun to be going down with my husband on the line next to me sharing his excitement and joy. Fun, fun, fun!

Hanging upside down with my arms and legs wide open on the last zipline was a lot of fun, I felt like I was flying. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour and wanted to go back and try all over again.
