Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome, the world’s first wildlife park with a Challenge Ropes Course, today launches their latest adventure activity, the Slack Line.

Comprising a webbed line anchored between two elevated points, the Slack Line is 18m long and sits 6m 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 newest activity would be an exhilarating addition to the existing activities.

“The Slack Line is an exciting new adventure for our visitors to experience, and offers even more of a challenge for our thrill-seeking guests,” he said.

“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 has now become a permanent fixture at the park, and is open to the public from today.

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.
