Rapid heart rate. Sweating. Heightened senses. Shallow breathing. Decreased ability to feel pain. Increased strength and performance. Dilated pupils. Feeling jittery or nervous.
These are all symptoms of an adrenaline rush. Even in Hawai‘i, where people come ostensibly to relax, there are ways to get the ol’ heart racing if you so choose.
At Climb Works Keana Farms you’ll get to experience the best zipline course on Oahu. There are eight side-by-side zipline runs, designed so you can see the North Shore’s famous beaches, farms and lush mountains with the person of your choice right next to you.
The adventure starts with a 10-minute, two-mile ATV ride to the top of the mountain. “You’ll go by farms, through the jungle and up the mountainside,” says General Manager Jesse McVey, “seeing some of the best landscape Hawai‘i has to offer.”
Climbworks Keana Farms is located on a 450-acre working farm. “We use the farm below as an experience for our guests as they traverse the zipline course,” says McVey. “Each tower is a learning station and every zipline includes a farm lesson. We want people to leave the farm with respect for the land, and knowing the Native Hawaiian people’s approach to its care.”
“Along the tour you’ll encounter rappels, sky bridges, scenic boardwalks, and a couple of surprises,” he adds. “They make for some fun activities that challenge you in a safe and controlled way.”
Speaking of safe and controlled, ziplining at Climb Works meets all the safety protocols for staying healthy during the Covid-19 crisis. “We’ve limited the number of tours so that social distancing is built in to the activity,” says McVey “and safety has always been part of the CLIMB Works mission. We developed our own braking platform that is the safest in the industry and eliminates the human error factor, which is the most common cause of accidents. Knowing that we have a perfect safety record allows people to enjoy the adrenaline rush of the ziplines and the awesome views and education with no unnecessary fear.”
