      Christchurch Adventure Park features the longest chairlift in New Zealand and the the first in the country that has been purposefully designed for riders and their bikes. The park features a range of green to double black trails, including two jump trails of varying difficulty and plenty of hand built tech trails. The park was re-opened in Dec 2017 after it was closed from the port hills fire that destroyed the park in Feb 2017.

      CAP also features a village and cafe near the base of the chairlift surrounded by an extensive skills area, a pumptrack, and jumps to advance your bike skills.

      The Adventure Park from 11am Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and 10am Saturday and Sunday. The park is closed on Tuesdays.
