Cable Bay Adventure Park Limited


The World’s longest Flying Fox - set right here in Nelson. The one of a kind experience is an amazing scenic ride with a shot of adrenaline flying high above the forest canopy. Your tour starts with a 4km ride in one of our 4-wheel drive vehicles, passing through pristine native forest while our guides entertain you with facts about the park’s diverse native environment, cultural aspects and fun stories. The Skywire is set 300m above our base café and has incredible views of Cable and Delaware Bays, the western ranges and north towards D’urville island. On a clear day you can even see the snow-capped peak of Mount Taranaki. Strapped securely into the ride with 5-point harnesses, the Skywire seats up to four “flyers” at a time, with around 800m of gravity assisted free-wheeling, reaching speeds of up to 100 kph, followed by 800m at a more leisurely pace - ideal for taking in the incredible scenery. Then you do it all again - BACKWARDS The Skywire is weather dependant - we don't operate in heavy rain or high winds. Bookings not always essential but highly recommended in the busy summer season. See the online booking portal on our website for current trip times and availability. Looking to cater for a large group, corporate function or wedding?
