SkyWire is the only ride of its type in the world. Your adventure begins with a journey through bush trails to the terminal site that offers magnificent views over Tasman Bay. Adventure seekers are strapped onto a high tech 4 chair carriage, which is launched 1.6km over and back, high above a native forest valley. Reach speeds of up to 100kph (60mph) on an endless cable, dropping 150m like an extreme high speed ski lift
