Great fun

I went for my very first zipline through this business in March for my birthday with my Mum and thought it was well run and set up. Zac the teacher was quirky and memorable as we walked up the hill to our first zipline, and Rory clipped us up ready for our journey across the wire. I felt very safe all the time as they go through beforehand showing you the ropes, quite literally and we really enjoyed the course out past Glenorchy going through the trees along the water etc. Very pretty. Highly recommended

Simply the best ..... I have Ziplined in places from Laos to Wales...Mel & Zac made it fun from start to finish & the scenery was spectacular.... the whole experience was better than 100% .... if your ziplining in NZ do yourself a favour & don’t go anywhere but Paradise Zipline .... 
safety is superior to none ..... let’s say perfect experience

Awesome Experience

My friends and I went on Paradise Zipline a few days ago and we couldn't recommend them more! Zac, Mel and Doug were great guides who really knew their stuff and they were also incredibly friendly too.

Zac's dad jokes were also a highlight of the entire experience which made dealing with the slopes and the height easier.

Thanks for a great time!
