Skywire - A world-first high-speed suspension wire ride designed to thrill while revealing the striking natural environment of Happy Valley.
A combination flying fox and chairlift sees the riders soar in a four-person carriage 1.6 kilometres across a native forest valley reaching speeds up to 100kph, both forward and backwards. This ride, although not for the faint hearted, is for those who want a thrill without a complete sense of terror.
The lasting memories of this 10 minute ride are the wonderful views of the native forest and silence broken only by the chorus of native birds.
