Kaikoura Zipline


Structex was engaged to design 5 ziplines overlooking the beautiful Kaikoura mountain range for EcoZip Flying Fox Adventures.

The adventure tourism attraction is proposed to traverse across the Rakanui valley, with short walks through native bush between each zipline. Key challenges included working within the local topography to achieve desirable rider speed profiles, limited site access for construction, and accounting for natural hazards including flash flooding and rockfall. Structex worked collaboratively with many other designers to provide an innovative zipline design, focused entirely around user safety and rider experience.

This exciting venture finally opened to the public in December 2023 so if you want an adrenaline rush check it out!
