WE ARE OPPOSITE THE GLOW WORM CAVE
Our Ziplines are located just 200 metres from the main Glow Worm Cave in Waitomo and is the perfect activiy to do before or after your cave tour. From high up on the Waitomo hills you will learn about the unique geology of the land and the local Maori people that have populated the Waitomo region for approximately one thousand years. With breathtaking views over the world famous Waitomo Caves you will complete a zipline circuit that ends with a super fast 280 metre zipline to finish your day on a true high.
After your trip and as evening descends there are also short riverside walks in the Waitomo area that have glow worms lighting up the way. These are unguided night time walks free for the public to experience.
Our ziplines are designed to give participants active use of the zipline gear. Guides will teach you everything you need to know and will be with you as you journey up to the Waitomo lookout with stunning views. As heights are involved each client will under go a safety briefing to learn how to use the gear provided, any non english speaking clients will need a translator. For extra safety any children U13 years old will also need a participating adult.
You will be navigating around trees and on small platforms as you clip your safety lines between ziplines. We start you off at a low level to get you confident using the gear and controling your speed before heading up higher in the trees and finishing with 3 very long ziplines. Our last zipline is 280m long and superfast where the guide will be in control of your stop.
As clients are required to follow instructions unassisted there is potential for serious harm to occur should safety instructions not be followed. It is a physical activity involving some impact into padding and swinging at the end of the ziplines so there is potential to flare any pre existing medical conditions. Please check with your doctor if concerned and particular care should be taken with knees, ankles, hips, shoulders, necks and backs.
Helmets will be supplied.
There is some up hill walking involved so while you are not required to be fit, you must be mobile to walk up hill and on uneven ground.
If you choose to stop participating during the activity and not complete all the ziplines, we cannot offer any refund.
Any one under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be turned away.
