What you'll do
The Kea tour is faster and longer than the Moa tour, and finishes with the steepest zipline in the world - a zipline ride that descends 30 stories at speeds of up to 70 kph!
This stunningly beautiful guided journey through native beech forest comprises six amazing ziplines with stunning lake and mountain views.
The Kea tour is a truly unique way to get down the mountain and perfect for those seeking a higher adrenaline factor.
Guests will be met by their tour guides and fitted with their harness and helmet before ziplining from treehouse to treehouse going all of the way to the bottom of Bob's Peak mountain.
The ziplines are gravity fed, so guests do not have to worry about controlling their own speed. Two tour guides will accompany the minimum 2, maximum 10 guests per tour. One guide to connect (launch platform) and one guide to disconnect (landing platform) each and every guest.
You will finish your tour at the base of the gondola in front of the Kiwi Birdlife Park.
The educational component provides a unique insight into the surrounding environment and local area including Maori mythology.
