High flying confidence boost

Since opening in July, Rocket Ropes aerial challenge course has proved popular with families, school groups and businesses, all looking for a fun way to build teamwork and to gain confidence.

Rocket Rope’s general manager John Dowsett says there’s nothing like it in Australia or New Zealand. Some of its unique features include its two activity towers (rather than the usual one), as well as New Zealand’s only powerfan freefall and the world’s largest colour chart, a feat created by replicating the Resene chart from hundreds of coloured plywood squares.

But the stars of the show are the activities, which include not just the high ropes courses but also the giant swing that takes you 10-12m off the ground and two ripper zip lines.

Work has now started on phase two, which will include climbing and abseiling walls, tower-based climbing activities and a toddlers course.

In the meantime, those of you in the Airport precinct business community can enjoy a 20 per cent discount on any midweek booking before October (excluding school holidays).
