Owner description: 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!

“Excellent fun on the flying fox!”
Reviewed January 12, 2016

Short well sign posted 15 min drive from the main highway approaching Taihape. A lovely clean,well maintained business with options for bungy jumping, canyon swing and flying fox. The cafe could look at having some home baking to accompany the coffee,but the cold drinks and toasted sandwiches hit the spot. The staff are great and very friendly and the viewing
platform and decked area offer great views of the rides and the canyon. My hubby and son rode the flying fox together and loved it! The walk up the hill to the top platform tested my hubby's fitness,but he said it was well worth it, Be prepared to pay for your own Go Pro recording which is the same price as the photos/video footage they can do for you. A great excursion! Great place! Well done team!

“Amazing Flying Fox!”
Reviewed October 6, 2015

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.
