There seemed to always be some sort of reason why I could not go ziplining in the past. Although, whenever I go on vacation, the ziplining places seem to be everywhere. Part of the reason I'd never gone ziplining before was finding a person to do it with. Like, my husband would not want to go ziplining unless I forced him.
On top of that, usually you have to make an appointment. I prefer more spur-of-the-moment activities while on vacation and trying to schedule how I might feel on any given day is difficult.
But Josh and Vika booked this ziplining appointment near Hilo, which is about a 2-hour drive one-way from Kona. At least we had the good sense to call and ask what we should wear. The woman who answered the phone said it was raining in Hilo, so bring a dry change of clothes.
As it turned out, we were the ONLY zipliners on Labor Day at Botanical World Adventure. It was raining when we arrived, but as soon as donned our helmets, the rain stopped. Soaring over lush tropical gardens and ending near a waterfall was simply spectacular. My only regret is I didn't do this years earlier. Now I want more.
