Jungle Surfing’s Very OwnHUMAN HAMSTER WHEEL

Jungle Surfing’s Human Hamster Wheel marks the beginning of every good adventure in our trees. What is it, you ask? It’s an ingenious way to elevate our guests from the forest floor up into our tree platforms, using the most sustainable form of energy on earth, people power. It started life as a playful suggestion over coffee in our staff hut. Two years, $260,000, several more coffees, and the input of the country’s leading cableway engineers later, our outlandishly eccentric invention was built.

In The Jungle, You Have To Be Creative.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE

If the daily grind included our Human Hamster Wheel, stress would be replaced with laughter and rush hour would become the best part of the day. So, we invite you to jump off the treadmill of life and onto our Human Hamster Wheel*, the first of its kind in the world. By using the power of 4 feet, 2 heartbeats and a 3-metre wheel, we will hoist you up to the first platform of your Jungle Surfing Canopy Tour adventure.

*No hamsters were harmed in building the wheel.

PEDAL TO THE METAL

As you walk, the circular motion of the wheel winds a cable onto a giant drum, hauling your fellow surfers treeward, without the need for stairs or generators. This is a seriously eco-friendly alternative with enough engineering genius (anti-rollback device, 2 independent braking systems and a 2-directional operation inspired by funicular railways) to excite any budding Michelangelo.

It’s clean, it’s green and it’s easy to use.
