About
The Kawarau Zipride offers a more mellow—yet still thrilling—alternative to bungy jumping from the Kawarau Bridge near Queenstown. Soar across the Kawarau River like Superman or ride upside down; you can book up to five zips, riding solo or tandem with six others across three parallel ziplines. You'll reach speeds of up to 37 mph (60 kph) on a 426-foot-long (130-meter) cable.

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 canyon swing/bungy. Note that you have to take off your glasses. I was provided with goggles, but being quite myopic, it was a bit of a blur. Also, the zip is over land, not the gorge, for reasons having to do with retrieval in the event of a power outage. All in all, fun but fast. Option of photos to buy of your experience provided by the venue.

I was terrified the entire time I was there. I am petrified of heights and have a fear that I'm going to die in water. There was no way I was bungee jumping. Couldn't even look at other's doing it without getting that tingling feeling in my feet (it's happening now just thinking about it). You sign up in the city of Queenstown, take a bus up to actual place and then still have a wait ahead of you. But it was a beautiful view the entire time zip lining. I was nervous that whole time as well, but it was worth it.

My family planned this trip a while ago, and we were so excited to experience the zipline in Queenstown. One staff just assumed that we couldn't speak English and started talking so rude to my dad who was taking his time to follow the instructions as it was his first time to go on it, not because he couldn't understand what she was saying. Even if he couldn't understand, she has absolutely no right to treat my dad in such behaviour. Additionally, there was no one waiting behind us so there was no reason to rush. At first I couldn't hear what she was saying but my sister heard everything and told the staff that she doesn't have to be so rude to him. (The staff literally spat out to my dad, "you just have no idea what's going on aye?") As soon as she realised that we could speak English she suddenly changed her manners and acted as if she was the most kind person on earth. THIS IS RIDICULOUS. We paid to have a great time there and she just ruined the whole day. If she treated me like that, I would have fought back but as my dad wanted to keep the trip smooth and happy, he refused to fight back and just listened to whatever she was spitting. On the way back I just couldn't forget how badly my dad was treated. They swapped the staff as soon as my dad got off the ride and when it was our turn to go on it. I don't care if she was having a bad day. I could totally tell that she would be unacceptably rude to all the tourist whom she thinks cannot speak English. Utterly horrible mannered staff. We want you to apologise sincerely.

We had so much fun doing this. Yes there are longer, faster zip lines exist, however this is great for all, my friend went down sat down, i lay down, there are lots of fun ways to do this zipline and the guys/girls that work there are very safe but very chilled as well.
About 25mintues from Queenstown.
Loved it.

Decided to do the zipline so master 9 could participate. He loved it (but had to double up with Dad). Master 14 and Miss 19 also enjoyed themselves so great activity for all ages. We used Bookme site for the tickets so it was one of the cheapest activities we did while in Queenstown.

We went to view some of the people Bungy jumping from such a scenic spot and got hooked on the idea of Ziplining after watching several people having a great time. Although you can arrange a shuttle bus from the Shotover St area, we chose to drive ourselves. E didn't pre book and took our chances, however if you have a generous amount of time and prefer a schedule, booking might be advised. The website is also very helpful. The site is only about 30 minutes north of Queenstown. Although I didn't participate myself, my 14 year son and 12 year old daughter did, and they had a x3 Zipline package. I was even given and on the spot discount of $30, compared to the advertised price, as there was no queue. Allow about 45 minutes for all 3 turns. You are able to select various poses in the harness when Ziplining. A highly recommended activity.

We came here originally to see the bungy jump and it was a great place to visit. After hanging around for an hour or so, both me and my 11 year old girl decided to do this zipline together. I had to declare my medical conditions but the staff were really efficient and assuring. I did the front facing forward but the 11 year old did the flying position, both of us scream with excitement as it was such a fun thrill ride.
