Flying Fox

At 90 metres long and taking off from a 10 metre platform, the flying fox will get the adrenalin pumping and give campers a chance to overcome their fear of heights. Using a body harness and dual karabiner system, this flying fox is perfectly safe, unlike the old days when you had to hang on for dear life!
