Kawarau Bridge Zipline Experience from Queenstown

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    On the Kawarau Zipride you’ll reach speeds of up to 37 mph (60 kph) as you zipline over the Kawarau River by way of a 426-foot-long (130-meter) cable. Tours depart every 40 minutes with convenient round-trip transport from central Queenstown to the Gibbston Valley, located just 25 minutes away.

    On arrival at the Kawarau Bridge — famous for the world’s first commercial bungy jump — you’ll  receive a safety briefing before ziplining across the river. You have multiple choices: book a single ride or upgrade to three or five zipline packages. Go solo or share the experience alongside family and friends in tandem next to you. 

    You can ride forward in a comfortable seated position; flip upside down like Batman or fly like Superman in a lying-down position; or enjoy the thrill of zipping backward as you soak up the views of Kawarau Gorge.

    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

    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
