This was excellent, I chose the 2 line tour, it was great fun without being too thrilling. The drop at the end was unexpected, it was a great thrill. Hosts JAck (England) and Toby (NZ) were lovely, informative, and very safety conscious. Fabulous adventure, highlly recommend it.
Great experience overall. Did the 6 line trip. However a major negative was that we had to walk solidly downhill for 25 to 30 minutes to get to the last zipline which means less ziplining time overall. This equates to less value for money. Also I had to buy a gondola ticket to get to the starting point not cheap! and as we ended at the bottom I had to buy another ticket to get back to the top to ride the luges. Therefore I would recommend that you do what you need to do at the top first and do the zipline in the afternoon so you don't need to go back up when you complete the zipline. Also note that the luges don't start until 10am and you would need to factor this in when organising the zipline starting time.
Hello, the Zip line tour was fun, zipping through the tree line is a different experience and a good way to test yourself. I would suggest you try it, the first time for doing anything like this always has a wow factor with it. The guides were fun and informative about the environment we were in. I suggest that if you can walk the track up to the top as the walk is worth doing and I appreciated the whole experience much more. Alan
Great experience! Highly recommended. This is a fun, thrilling activity for all ages. The two guides that go with you are well trained so you feel safe throughout the experience and also give insight into the area.
If you can I'd recommend the 6- Line tour which finishes with steep line drop at the end, but there is a bit of a trek to that last one through the Tiki Trail. Also bring a beanie and gloves as this can get chilly during the cooler months!
Beautiful views but it all went really fast and there wasn't that much to see. There was one great run with a view and another that was steep but otherwise, it was pretty boring. You also have to buy a roundtrip ticket to the top - one way isn't an option. The hosts were great though.
