IMG_2389For the 7th year, KapohoKine Adventures gave away free ziplining to kama‘āina over Memorial Day weekend.

More than 200 locals enjoyed ziplining over Saturday and Sunday, far exceeding the planned 50 per day. No one in line was turned away.

In response to asking kama‘āina to bring one non-perishable food item per person, KapohoKine Adventures was able to donate four large bins of food to the Hawai‘i Food Basket.

Starbucks donated coffee for zipliners to enjoy while waiting in line.

“Many of our local families are unable to afford ziplining even at the steepest discount,” said Tony DeLellis, co-owner of KapohoKine Adventures. “We want to give residents a chance to experience what’s in our own backyard, and take pride in the fact that it is our natural surroundings that draw so many visitors to the island.”

KapohoKine Adventures, in collaboration with its partner Zipline Through Paradise, offers an eight-line zip course above Hilo, including the longest riding tandem line on the sland.
