Cable Bay Adventure Park
The Worlds longest Flying Fox - set right here in Nelson. The one of a kind experience is a shot of adrenaline mixed with an amazing scenic ride high above the forest canopy. Set 300 metres above the base cafe your trip starts with a 4 km mini-bus journey up through the park to the launch platform of the Skywire. Your guides will entertain you on the trip up with facts and stories of the park and surround areas.
The ride takes up to 4 people at a time, seated side by side, strapped into individual racing car style seats with 5 point harnesses and can reach speeds of up to 100 km/hr. The ride takes you both forward and backwards, with 800 metres of gravity assisted freewheeling in each direction - combined with 700 metres of scenic journey in each direction, finishing back at the start after nearly 10 minutes of thrilling adventure. Many people rate the return backwards as the highlight of the trip. Universally appealing for every age (minimum height of 1.2 m applies).
