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.

I'm doing some scouting of activities to do for my friend's birthday. He doesn't like heights so he won't do the bungy. However I did talk him into the Zipline if I did it first and advised him on how it was. The zipline is...More

My daughter did this Zipride after Kawarau Bungy Jump. It looks only a 100 to 150m length and takes only a 10 seconds. You can choice the zip style such as sit, supermen and so on. After Bungy Jump, it seems a bit boring🤣

Hi Keikoo, sorry to hear that the ZipRide didn't have as much thrill as the Bungy (understandably). We hope your daughter enjoyed the views and the Bungy. Cheers for the review!
