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!

The gorge and view of the river are really something. The detour from the main road is very well signposted and the road is good. Friendly helpful staff and alternatives to the Bungee jump for the faint hearted.

Had the best time. If your looking for a scenic drive with a thrill at the end then "Gravity canyon" is the place to stop in. So go and see "Tomo" and the gang for the time of your life. They have a flying fox,...More

You have got to give it a try, bit of a drive but worth it. Plenty to do, nice café and great fun. Not as well known as the queens town bunjies but in my opinion better value and a better jump
