Default Zip line fans-Labadee

There is a monster zip line now open in Labadee. It is advertised as the longest zip line over water in the world. It starts up on a hilltop and travels more than a half mile over the beach area to the landing pad on the rocks overlooking the water. Not too many takers on the day that we were there last week.

My family can't wait. 3/08 FOS. Do they assign a time if you preorder or can you buy the day of? I think I would prefer to buy the day of. That way you are not obligated if it rains.

My DH and I have been reading about it for about a month now. I think they just opened it recently and were still completing it in May. I am disappointed because I wanted to do it, but can't now that I am pregnant

A zip line or Canopy tour is being harnessed and just about flying through the trees. The one we did in Montego Bay, you want over some rivers and were quite high up. At every landing, you get switched over to the next line, so you are always hooked up and in no danger of falling. Its eally fun and a bit scary at times, you can go pretty fast too.

My Husband would go for it, but then there is my 13year old......Holly I know forsure SHE will just FREAK OUT about it and won't do it, also she will be FREAKING because I go. BUT, then what the heck do I do with her???????
STRAP her on my BACK and MUSSELL her. lol
I don't care we will figure out what we can do when we get there.
I would love to VIDEO on the way DOWN. NOW THAT WOULD BE COOL.....

Hi Everyone,

This zipline sounds great. We have been to Labadee a number of times and love the relaxation that comes with this port. However, this would definately bring a new dimension to our trip. I have a few questions:

1 - How much $$$ adults/children
2 - age restrictions? we will be cruising with our 9 and 7 year old daughters
3 - can 2 people go together?

Thanks for any info!!!

Question about Labadee. Are all sides of the island accessible to Mariner Cruisers? I was just wondering how to get to the side of the island with the rocks, beach and Dragon's Lair?

Thanks

Hi Diane,
Yes, you can get over there, just on the other side as you enter from the pier area, very easy to find.

For a good look at the Labadee zip line there is a video clip on YouTube that will give you an idea of what is in store.

OMG: YOU WHERE SO RIGHT, I CHECKED OUT Youtube WOW I WOULD NEVER HAVE GUESSED TO LOOK THERE.
THAT LOOKS LIKE ALOT OF FUN AND WHAT NICE SCENERY.
IT LIKE REALLY REALLY HIGH.
BUT I THINK THAT I WANT TO SO GO FOR IT ANYWAY. I WILL SO BE GOING / DOING THIS.
DOES ANYONE OUT THERE NO THE COST TO DO THIS.? ALSO....DO YOU PAY ON THE BEACH AREA?
IT LOOKS LIKE TO ME THAT NOPE 2 PPL, CAN'T GO TOGETHER DOWN THE ZIP LINE. INDIVIDUAL SAIL DOWN THE PARADISE LANE. COULD BE WRONG.
