The latest innovation from the bungy pioneers!! Perfect for families, friends and tour groups! Comprised of three zip lines, allowing for singles or tandems, up to six people can ride at once! At speeds of up to 60kph, riders will cruise 130m alongside the Kawarau River, and at the end be returned to the starting point while taking in panoramic views of the Kawarau Bridge.

We were 15 people played the Zipride. All are enjoyed other than 3 of us who made the bungy jump prior to the Zipride. It is better to do this first then bungy. All others enjoyed really well. It is safe but shorter distance only.
