Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    On the Kawarau Zipride you’ll reach speeds of up to 37 mph (60 kph) as you zipline over the Kawarau River by way of a 426-foot-long (130-meter) cable. Tours depart every 40 minutes with convenient round-trip transport from central Queenstown to the Gibbston Valley, located just 25 minutes away.

    On arrival at the Kawarau Bridge — famous for the world’s first commercial bungy jump — you’ll  receive a safety briefing before ziplining across the river. You have multiple choices: book a single ride or upgrade to three or five zipline packages. Go solo or share the experience alongside family and friends in tandem next to you. 

    You can ride forward in a comfortable seated position; flip upside down like Batman or fly like Superman in a lying-down position; or enjoy the thrill of zipping backward as you soak up the views of Kawarau Gorge.

    Being a senior and being my first zipline, this was a great introduction. Booked it ahead of time in downtown Queenstown. Opted for the seated position but if I could do it again, it would be Superman - face first. It is really quite tame, and a less daunting option to the
