Hit the slopes and experience one of the best downhill trails in New Zealand for four hours. Rush down both Rude Rock and Hot Rod trails that descend Coronet Peak to the valley floor, tackling a few natural kickers along the way. You'll be shuttled back to the top as many times as you like.
Prepare for an exhilarating adventure on two wheels at the legendary Rude Rock, renowned as being one of the best downhill biking tracks in the country. You'll be picked up from your Queenstown accommodation and taken to the top of Coronet Peak, where you'll enjoy a 10 minute ride to the summit of Rude Rock. Take a deep breath before hitting the 3km single track that descends Coronet Peak's slopes, featuring a number of natural kickers and steep rock garden sections to keep things interesting. You'll then hit Hot Rod, the trail's hotly awaited extension which takes you all the way to the valley floor. Featuring a beautiful flowing single track over freshly built berms and easy table tops and drops, you'll be engrossed the whole way. It will take you approximately 20-30 minutes to get down to the main road and once at the bottom, you'll be shuttled back to the top to do it all over again.
Minimum of 4 for a trip to run. Subject to availability. Not recommended for anyone who's a first-timer's or hasn't had prior experience at riding intermediate trails.
Maximum of 11 participants.
Riders get priority, however spectators can pay $20 to watch. This will not be confirmed until the morning of the ride.
Trips will not proceed if it has rained too much. Rain ruins the trail for other riders and requires more maintenance.
Helmets are required, full face or half face. It is recommended to wear gloves, knee and elbow pads and even chest plates and thigh pads if you have them. Wear comfortable shoes and non-baggy clothing.
Teenagers should be accompanied by an adult. You're responsible for your own safety and you should ride within your skill level. We will ask you to sign a waiver to acknowledge this sport is very dangerous and you will be doing it at your own risk. We will take no responsibility for any injury or death. We are just here to shuttle you to the start and give you some pointers.
This experience takes place in Coronet Peak, a 20 minute shuttle to the top from Queenstown.

We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
