Queenstown | The Ledge Bungy / Swing | Skyline Luge
Coasterz 'n' Canyonz Blog Day 17
Just a 2-minute walk from the hotel........ Our last full day in Queenstown and time to check out some attractions just next to our hotel. The Skyline cable car is similar to the one we visited in Rotorua last week, except this one is very steep and takes you 400m above Queenstown.
Of course, this being the "Adventure Capital of the World", there's more than just the views to enjoy. Take a zip-line trek down the hill, extreme mountain biking, paragliding and, the reason for our visit, another swing and bungy!
The only difference here, is this starts VERY high up (400m). The actual bungy and swing aren't that big (47m) in comparison to others we've tried in the last few days, but having the platform so high up, gives the illusion of an extreme activity (which of course it is).
It's more extreme than others on the trip, proving it's not all about statistics
Also at the top are 2 luge tracks, not as scary as Rotorua's (as it wasn't raining), but still enjoyable.
After all the excitement, we spent the last hour watching the para-gliders taking off (Yes, they are tandem - and it's a paid activity. No we didn't have a go!).
