The Chairlift

At 1.8km long the Christchurch Adventure Park chairlift is the longest in New Zealand and the first in the country that has been purposefully designed for riders and their bikes, AWESOME. The simple load and unload system takes any hassle out of carrying your bike and the views just make it a treat to ride. The chairlift is used to access the start of the Zipline tour and can be ridden for the views alone with the Sightseeing Pass. 

Travel up and down on our chairlift for a stunning scenic ride taking in the adventures around you as you go. You will dismount at the top and there is a short walk to take some snaps with views across the city and out to the Pacific Ocean and Southern Alps in the background- a selfie-spot must.
