Zoom Zipline Rotorua's latest attraction!
Posted on Friday, 18 April 2014
The high-speed twin zipline descends 385 metres down the side of Mt Ngongotaha, followed by a unique 10 metre Quickjump system which sees you "freefall" from the landing platform following your zipline ride.
After the rush of zooming past the scenery on the zipline, you can experience a secondary rush of the Quickjump to get the heart pumping faster.
The Quickjump will have you harnessed to a single line and "freefalling" before a special breaking system ensures a soft landing. A small "gang plank" has been added to the Zipline’s landing platform for you to take the leap of faith.
Zoom Ziplines has specially trained guides and strict safety measures, however, if you would rather not take that ‘leap of faith’ you are welcome to take the more conventional way down via the stairs and then catch the chairlift back to the top of the luge,
The official Zoom Zipline opening will take place on April 29 which will be attended by Associate Tourism Minister Todd McClay and Mayor Steve Chadwick.
Zoom Zipline is suitable for children and adults, with a minimum weight of 27 kilograms and a maximum of 125 kilograms.
