We wanted to do the skywire but took the combo option and rode the quad bikes as well which was great. We had a short tuition session and practice before we set off and really enjoyed it.

This is a must-do in Nelson. Great value for money and an exciting and thrilling attraction. The owners are SO lovely and the drive up to the flying fox was great and informative. The flying fox itself was AMAZING. 10/10

Is there an age limit for the quad bikes - we have a 12 year old in our group

Response from HappyValleyNZ | Property representative |
All Riders must be 16 years of age but anyone 5 years and up can be a passenger. We have limited passenger bikes and these get sold out quickly.
Do you need to do all the activities or just choose one? I am interested in the zipline activity. Thanks K

No. You can choose any activity. If you just want to do the Skywire, come on out.
