Skywire - A world-first high-speed suspension wire ride designed to thrill while revealing the striking natural environment of the Cable Bay Adventure Park.

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 for a total trip distance of 3.2 km. Although not for the faint hearted, it is family friendly and a great mix of scenery and thrill that can be enjoyed 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.
