Full description

Enjoy convenient round-trip transfers through the Cable Bay Adventure Park in Nelson to the launch base. Experience the high-octane rush of soaring over the forest at speeds of up to 100 kilometers per an hour with this Skywire ticket. 

Set 300 meters above the base café, your adventure starts with a 4 kilometer mini-bus journey up through the park to the launch platform of the Skywire. Be engaged as your guide shares facts and stories about the park and surrounding areas. 

Get buckled in for the ride with up to 4 people that are seated side-by-side in individual racing-car style seats with 5 point protective harnesses. Move forward and backwards on the Skywire, with 800 meters of gravity-assisted freewheeling in each direction.

Was an awesome set up and experience for sure. Amazing views, Fletcher was our guide and he was really cool to chat with and gave us some cool history about the place. Only thing it was a bit short be good if it was a bit longer than there and back but still awesome to do it
