Macleans Park Double Flying Fox
“A must see” – this is an awesome riding experience
Auckland Council wanted to add a fast-paced, fun feature in the form of a flying fox to Macleans Park.

The desired thrill factor had to be balanced with safety and practicality. The brief involved a safe and structurally sound, dual flying fox that allowed users to compete and race across a length of 50 to 100 metres. With safety a priority, a solution was required to reduce the speed of the apparatus at the termination point particularly considering the relatively steep land contour. The Council was also looking for the most optimal safety surface solution that provided longevity with minimal maintenance.



This is not suitable for small children, my husband has witnessed a small 3 year old girl be placed on it by her parents and she flew off the end.  I would never allow my 3 year old son to go on it (much to his dismay).
My 7 and 10 year olds love it.
