Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome launches seventh activity

Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome launches seventh activity
December 3, 2015

Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome, the world’s first wildlife park with a Challenge Ropes Course, has recently launched a new adventure activity, the Slack Line.

Comprising a webbed line anchored between two elevated points, the Slack Line is 18 metres long and sits 6metres above the wildlife immersion exhibit on the floor of the Dome.

It is run as a separate activity that can be attempted once participants have successfully completed the Mid-ZOOM, Hi-ZOOM, Dome-Climb and Power Jump activities.

Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome Manager Michael Bowley said the Slack Line would be an exhilarating addition to the existing activities.

Bowley stared “the Slack Line is an exciting new adventure for our visitors to experience, and offers even more of a challenge for our thrillseeking guests.

"It looks easy from a distance but it’s surprisingly challenging once you start making your way across.”

The Slack Line activity was originally developed for The Amazing Race China, which filmed team challenges at the Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome recently.

It was so successful with the series that it was decided to make it’s a permanent fixture at the park.

In addition to the recently-launched Pirate Climb and Commando Rope Climb, the Slack Line further reinforces the park’s commitment to enhancing visitors’ experiences at the attraction and within the Cairns region. 

Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome is an exhilarating Challenge Ropes Course consisting of ziplines, crossings and walkways in a wildlife park, allowing visitors to appreciate and be educated about our native fauna.
