Spectacular scenery as well as exciting, fun and excellent value for money. The guys looked after us and made our day very special. They were patient and very hospitable. Highly recommend as a MUST DO when in Queenstown

Outstanding experience

Gary O, September 2019

We are a 70+ year old couple from Fox Island, Washington on our first & only trip to New Zealand. We wanted the best experience possible for ziplining. We researched all we could find in the Queenstown area and determined the Paradise hade the best combination with 8 lines and stunning scenery. Did not want to just slide down a cable. Scenery was all we could have hoped for. The staff could not have been better 10 stars....we recommend without reservation


Best Ziplines around Queenstown

I have done a few zip lining courses over the world and this is my favourite, It has the right amount of adrenaline rush and awesome scenery of the gorge and beautiful flowing water below. Not just boring tree to tree zips with the ground to look at like many others. Worth the 45 minute drive from Queenstown - is right next to a lovely town and the drive and scenery to get there is amazing as well.

Are you ready for...

Our 8 zipline course takes you 1000m through beautiful mature forest over a pristine alpine stream.
