If you like the rush of pushing yourself to the limit, then this, is the spot for you! . The site features an 80 metre Bungy Jump the highest in the North Island. It is also the highest Bridge jump in the country as well as the highest night jump. After you've jumped you're lowered onto a recovery raft then returned to the bridge in the world's first water-powered chairlift system. If you're not so keen on the bungy, you can just go for a ride in the chair, perhaps not as frightening but definitely saves on the laundry!
As if the bungy wasn't enough the world's most extreme Flying Fox is also located at Mokai Gravity Canyon. The Flying Fox is launched from 170 metres above the Rangitikei River, and riders reach speeds of up to 160kph down a 1.1km long cable. The flying fox can carry up to 3 people so it's an excellent way to share a death defying moment! The site is still being added to, an 80 metre Bridge Swing is under construction, and will hopefully be open early summer. The Swing will release from the Bridge and free-fall approximately 35 metres before swinging down stream over the Rangitikei River.Gravity canyon also have a great on site cafe, it's an excellent stop to stretch the legs and check out what's going on. It's also a good laugh watching someone scaring themselves stupid! It's not recommended to eat until after you've thrown yourself off all the attractions!

The Rangitikei gorge has been slowly formed over the last million or so years. The rock you see in the gorge is a combination of sand stone and silt stone, having once been the ocean floor just as the tale of maui suggests. As the tectonic plates push against each other they have caused the land to rise in the east. This force also created the Rimutaka ranges. The river running east carrying stone and other debris easily cut through the soft stone forging it's way to the ocean. Each time there is movement in the fault the land gradually raises again exposing a new challenge for the river to cut through.
