What to expect at HANAZONO ZIP WORLD

The “mega zipline” at HANAZONO ZIP WORLD opened July 1, 2022, in Hanazono Niseko Resort. It was designed and constructed by Skyline Zipline Japan, part of Canada’s Skyline Zipline company, and will give you incredible views of the surrounding mountains.
Talking about the HANAZONO ZIP WORLD, Skyline Zipline mentioned that many people that have tried skydiving or bungee jumping feel that their world view has changed, but not everyone is able to experience such an extreme activity. But with HANAZONO ZIP WORLD, in a milder and more accessible environment, they said they “hope that many people will come to make their dream of flying a reality.”

HANAZONO ZIP WORLD consists of three different zip lines, the Green, Red, and Black Diamond Superfly courses. The Black Diamond Superfly line is the longest mega zipline in Asia, with a maximum speed of an insane 110km/h (68mph).
The Green line is 427m long, the Red 464m, and the Black Diamond Superfly is an impressive 1,700m. After taking on the Green and Red courses, you’ll be raring to go and try out the longest, fastest course!

Another fun feature of the resort attraction is their dual zip line, which allows you to race down the mountain side by side with a friend or family member while taking in the stunning views. That’s definitely not a vacation memory you’ll soon forget!
Of course, the zipline courses take safety measures very seriously, too, and implements the skyTECH Safe Launch system which includes multiple mechanical, visual, and electronic safety protocols. The courses are up to the Association of Challenge Course Technology's international safety standard, and promises world-class safety, so you can soar through the air with peace of mind.
