AirSurfer

The AirSurfer is the zipline come of age. For those who are looking for more than jumping from tree to tree, we offer the ride of a lifetime. With its ability to turn and go uphill the AirSurfer goes where traditional ziplines cannot.

The AirSurfer combines the best of ziplining and amusement park attractions rolled into one ride. You are invited to conquer one of the most exhilarating experiences available.

As the world’s only turning zipline the AirSurfer offers a rush like no other attraction.

The AirSurfer is available in three vehicle options:

SNOWBOARD: Stand on the board and experience the rush of speeding through the air.

SOAR: This seated model allows you to sit side-by-side with another guest and fly through the skies.

SNIPER: This model adds interactivity into a thrilling experience. Shoot at targets as you speed through the woods.

The AirSurfer Experience

After being fitted with a harness or belted into your seat, you are ready to take to the sky!

The operator clears you and the vehicle accelerates out of the station. You hit the first turn and sail through it. The speed starts as the vehicle climbs and accelerates up to 54 km/h (34 mph). Trees are whizzing by and the people are a blur as you pass over midways below. All of the sudden the ride turns to the left and cuts back as you surf through the next turn.

The AirSurfer Soar allows groups of two to enjoy the ride together.
