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!

I hate heights, my partner hates heights and his height-hating father gave us a trip on the flying fox for Christmas. I was so reluctant but having tried the flying fox I would go back over and over again. It is exciting, exhilarating, beautiful and...More
