Visitors can experience the most extreme flying fox (Zip Line) in New Zealand. Imagine being launched from a canyon ledge 175m above the Rangitikei River before racing down a 1km long zip line at speeds of up to 160kph! This amazing adventure activity quite literally takes your breath away!

Just stunning even without the rides! So high it is breathtaking! The rides are currently closed, but we stood on the bridge and surrounding areas an it was worth the drive of about 1/2hr.

It's superman without out the cape. It's the most amazing feeling flying down the river at speed. The closest thing to flying without an engine and wings. I did this with my girl friend, and honestly we were both very apprehensive. When you get to...More

Great experience on the Flying Fox! Good alternative to bungy or swing! There is a bit of a trek to get to the top of the fox but it is well worth it. The staff were so friendly and made the experience so much better.
