Coral Crater Opens on Oahu


Coral Crater Adventure Park, billed as Hawaii’s only full-service outdoor recreation destination, opened for business in December. The park, built by Synergo, is built on a former U.S. Navy coral quarry, and most of the adventure activities are located in a 10-acre crater. The property also features a 6,000-square-foot lawn, observation deck, and landscaped picnic area where families can gather.

The crater activity area offers:

ATV tours
Aerial adventure tower
50-foot freefall experience
Climbing and rappelling wall
50-foot giant swing
Six-line zip line course
Electric mountain bike tours
& Tactical live-action laser tag

The aerial adventure tower features five levels with 18 challenge elements including log bridges, rope swings, and, in true Hawaiian-style, a surfboard that participants must ride to reach the next platform.

The zip line tour is fully guided and includes six lines ranging from 300 to 900 feet in length. Participants can reach speeds of up to 35 mph. To make it a bit more interesting, participants may also choose the laser machine gun option to shoot at targets while zipping.

“Adventure parks are rapidly becoming one of the most popular outdoor activity experiences in the U.S., and for good reason – they are extremely fun and offer something for everyone,” said James Owen, CEO and owner of Coral Crater, LLC, which operates the park. “Coral Crater Adventure Park provides a fresh lineup of activities in Hawaii, enhancing recreation opportunities for residents and visitors alike in a safe, convenient location.”

The park, which was designed to reduce environmental and community impact, features solar power, seabird-friendly lighting, extensive recycling and composting measures, gray-water recycling, and other environmentally focused measures.

The grand opening celebration is planned for Jan. 7, 2017.
