Forest Adventure Zip Line Prices & Opening Times
For thrill seekers and outdoorsy types, Forest Adventure zip line park in Onna promises wholesome fun and a bit of exercise, too.
Adults and older kids can experience ten zip lines over a cavern of Okinawa’s lush greenery, and climb bridges, ladders, and other obstacles in between.

The main office and parking lots are just off the 6, south of the Renaissance Hotel. After filling out necessary paperwork and reviewing the park rules, a shuttle bus will pick your group up, and drop you off at the park entrance, up a steep hill.
Reservations are required, as are closed-toe athletic shoes (no sandals or slip ons). Wear light, athletic clothing and shoes you don’t mind getting dirty. Minimum height to zip line is 4.6 feet; maximum weight is 287 pounds. Guests under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Groups of 8 or more will receive a discount. Yearly passes are also available.
At the park, the staff will fit you into a harness, provide a brief safety course, and make you do a “test” zip line to show you how to use the equipment. Then you’re pretty much on your own to go through the course. However, staff members are stationed at various checkpoints, to help out if needed and to make sure patrons are following park rules.

If you’ve never zip lined before, the first one can seem scary, but you’ll find that it’s more fun than anything else. There is one part of the park—an obstacle, not a zip line, that’s rather intimidating: the Tarzan Swing. After climbing up to a high platform, a staff member instructs you to hook up your harness to a swing, and you’re supposed to step off, free fall for a second, and swing into a huge net. It takes a leap of faith and a bit of chutzpah to step off the platform. Our advice: don’t hesitate, just go; the longer you wait, the scarier it becomes. If this sounds too overwhelming, you can bypass the swing via another obstacle. If you do, however, you’d be missing out on one of the most thrilling aspects of the park.
