School Holiday Programmes

Up for school holiday fun?

Book now for the October School Holiday Programme!

The Park will be open every day throughout the School Holiday's, fingers crossed for good weather! 

Come and visit us and take a trip up the Chairlift to see the sights of Christchurch, book a zipline tour or hit the bike trails. 

What is the Programme?

During School Holidays we hold two-day and one-day activity programmes that will develop a youth's skills and confidence on a mountain bike, teach them the mechanics of bikes, and participate in fun activities around the park!

Catering for beginners through to experienced riders, the school holiday programme focuses on fun with a sense of adventure in a supportive environment. 

Groups will be divided by skill level with each group riding to the speed of the slowest rider.
