Zip line study to be conducted at Waikiki resort

Hilton Hawaiian Village

The state Board of Land and Natural Resources approved Friday a site assessment to explore a potential zip line operation at Hilton Hawaiian Village.

Waikiki Beach Activities, a third-party vendor that runs the resort’s beach and pool services, is considering a zip line that would start at the roof of a parking structure, run across Duke’s Lagoon Island and end near the public parking lot.

As part of the study, the company will set up a synthetic, high-strength braided line to simulate the zip line. Personnel will be on site for safety and crowd control.

Hilton Hawaiian Village told KHON2 plans for the project are in extremely preliminary stages and the resort has not approved the installation of a zip line, only a feasible study.
