Due to bad weather we've postponed After Dark #2 until Wednesday 24 July.

Back by popular demand! 

Experience Christchurch Adventure Park in the dark! Wednesday 24 July. 

Our first night event was an incredible success and we’re thrilled to be able to bring it back in July!

On Wednesday 24 July, the Park will stay open until 7 pm to give you the chance to ride the trails in the dark or book a sightseeing pass to see the lights of the bikers zipping by below you.

We will be running a night Zipline Tour during the evening, a unique opportunity to fly through the air on NZ's longest zipline in the dark!

Night riding will take place between 5 pm – 7 pm and will involve a select number of green, blue and black trails. See the list of trails which will be open below. If you already have uplifts for the Chair, there’s no additional cost to ride at night, otherwise drop into Guest Services to buy a pass.

Purchase your sightseeing pass by selecting 17 July below, places are limited. Prices are $20 for adults, $10 for youths 17 years and under and $15 for students and seniors. 

The Zipline Tour will begin at the later time of 5:45 pm and last for approximately 2.5 hours. Places are limited so book your spot today! Book online by selecting 24 July below, or contact Guest Services.

Come into the Handle Bar & Café to warm up with a hot drink and enjoy our special offer of 2 pizzas and fries for $35, open until 8 pm.

Here's what you need to know to have an enjoyable night at the Park: 

  • Wear plenty of warm clothes as it will be cold on the hills once the sun has gone down, we recommend 2-3 layers and bring your gloves!
  • All riders must have adequate lighting, a minimum of 600 lumens. Our preference is that your lights are on your helmet before your handle bars. Please ensure your lights are fully charged and have a back-up head torch or equivalent.    
  • To make your ride more enjoyable, buddy up and be sure to ride to the conditions. Trails are often a grade level higher in the dark.
  • The following trails will be open between 5 – 7 pm, depending on weather conditions: All green trails, Snakeobs, Lord of the Possums, Handle the Jandal, Yeah Yeah Gnar, Summit Connection, Flying Nun, Choir Boy, Loess Rider, Swinger Party, Double Overhead Cam, Shredzilla, Kama Sutra, Uphill Hiking Trail. 
  • If you are coming to ride the chairlift or to walk up the uphill track, bring a head or handheld torch with you – fully charged. It will be dark once you walk away from the Village.
