Learning to sit in the air

Once I worked out how my body reacted in space I had a great time. Loved the 220 m zipline. Also happy to know how part of the charge is going to rid the bush of pests.

Awesome experience
We hadn’t planned to do the zip line in Rotorua but were passing through and it popped up on our Facebook page. So glad we did it though as it was an awesome experience in beautiful native forest with great guides and a fantastic adrenaline rush. Looking forward to coming back and doing the ultimate one next time. It’s a must if you’re passing through Rotorua.

Special day!
May 2021
This was a superb experience made all the more enjoyable by the personality, knowledge and passion for the forest of our two hosts. A beautiful setting to stand in the canopy and zipline between giant trees. A great way to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday. Thanks for the conservation efforts which let us all enjoy the NZ forest as it was hundreds of years ago. The experience with the robin was special. We will recommend this trip to others.

Fantastic fun for the kids and me. Luke and Teagan were great fun, while being completely focused on our safety and enjoyment. The forest is magnificent, and seeing my daughter's face when an NZ robin flew down to take a maggot from her outstretched hand was priceless.

Great day out (for the brave and even the not so brave!)
Apr 2021
Great experience - has always been on the bucket list! While most in our group were raring to go, we had one in the group that was very nervous - Liv & Harry got her through it and she came away wrapt that she had done it. We all had a blast - definitely up for the ultimate tour next time! A side bonus was the bird and bush educational side, and to hear about the pest trapping and see what a difference this has made. Great work guys!

Thoroughly recommend!
We had a great time doing the original tour with Tegan and Luke, learning about our native bush, wildlife and conservation. Got tips on other activities in Rotorua and fed the sweet little birds. Really appreciated how passionate they were about it and look forward to returning for the ultimate tour once our youngest is over 10. Was a great way to spend the day. Thanks heaps
