History of Ziplining
Ziplining can be traced back hundreds of years. Ancient communities in China and the Himalayas are credited with creating the first ziplines and would use them to cross rivers and other hazardous areas.
In the mid-70s, wildlife biologist Donald Perry began using ziplines to study the canopy in Costa Rica. Nearly 20 years later, Canadian entrepreneur Darren Hreniuk opened the first commercial zipline in Monteverde, Costa Rica.
There are ziplines around the world today. But Maui played a critical role in the sport’s history when the first zipline company in the United States opened on our shores.
