The Fox is having a wee sleep for now. See what she’s all about, and once we she wakes up from her nap, we’ll let the world know.
Yes, it’s some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. But that’s not why you’re here is it? Nope, you’re here to step it up a notch and take it to the extreme.
The Fox delivers New Zealand’s ultimate adrenalized high-wire hilarity. Start 182 metres up, plummet 5 metres and then scream another 445 metres across one of the most blurry but beautiful landscapes in the world. It’s high, it’s fun and it’s got to be done. Step right up (and off) to get your woo-ha on.
This is an utterly memorable thrill-ride you can’t find anywhere else and we simply love sharing it with the world. Your safety and sense of adventure is our number one priority. Whether you’re after an exciting family activity in Queenstown or instead require a top-rated NZ adrenalin-fuelled waking nightmare we’ve got the Fox drop for you.
Welcome to the worlds only zipline that lets gravity drop you from 182 metres high onto a 240 metre long cable to rush you across the canyon abyss.
This is just like the flying foxes at the local playground us Kiwis grew up with – except it’s 138 metres high and you can race alongside your buddy.

1 lifetime of memories
1 giant leap for manki… well, for you too
How is this different to a normal zipline?
First, we’ve added a bit of freefall into the mix. Then you’ve got all the different jump styles. Finally, there’s the height of the platform – this bad mamajama is New Zealand’s highest zipline platform
Can I just do one line?
No you can’t – you’ll be left stranded on the other side of the cliff if you do!
The second line is more ‘traditional’ however. So once you’ve conquered the first line the second is a piece of cake. Mmmmm, cake
How fast can you go across the zipline?
We have recorded speeds of up to 70kms per hour! But this does depend on the weight of customer and conditions at the time.
How is this compared to the swing?
This is less intense but it is still high. Many customers find the Fox a great introduction into ‘true’ Queenstown adrenaline activities. It’s a step up from an ordinary zipline but a step down from naked skydiving.
How long does the actual Fox take?
You’ll be zipping across pretty fast. The first line is 240m long so it’s about 15-20 seconds long. Then you dismount and get ready for the next line, which is 205m long for another 15-20 second ride.
Can I do a tandem on The Fox?
No sorry, tandems are only available on the Canyon Swing.
I have more questions. Who should I contact?
We’re always ready to answer any questions you might have – annual rainfall in the Amazon basin, the meaning of life, the best things to do in Queenstown.

We’ve listed a few of our favourites here. If these don’t tickle your pickle our jumpmaster will provide you with a comprehensive catalogue of fear-inducing, hair-raising, pants-wetting jump styles. From the not-confident to the far-too-confident, we’ve got a canyon swing style for everyone.
Many happy returns
For the best views our return trip delivers the goods. You can simply lean back and take it all in or, if you want to race your mate across the canyon, we suggest tucking into a ball to go as fast as you can.
Don’t worry, you’ve got this
Relax back in the saddle, shimmy up, and get ready to go. We’ll strap you in nice and tight and then you’ll be off on a natural charge, bon voyage…
Get ready to kiss your butt goodbye
When faced with a threat the human body generally has two impulses – fight or flight. You can’t fight your way out of this ride. But you can go in butt-first if you want.
The face-first standard
Soak up the view before you slowly roll down the rail to where the canyon reveals itself. It’s then that time will seem to stop – the drop snatching you down before the wire sends you screaming and barrelling through the air.
