Peak Galleria Zipline, Hong Kong
Epic urban zipline at premium tourism hotspot.

With support from Hong Kong Tourism Board, Invest HK and numerous government and NGO organisations, APA in partnership with Greenheart, completed design and engineering for an epic draw-card attraction to be placed atop of the Peak Galleria shopping mall at Hong Kong’s world famous Victoria Peak lookout, the most prized real estate in the world which draws 10 million visitor per year.

The four line Peak Galleria zipline attraction included a 120-meter flight experience taking zip liners from the natural views of HK’s beautiful ‘South Side’ country parks, flying towards the world famous Victoria Harbour skyline. 

The proposal included numerous edutainment exhibits focused on HKs’ biodiversity. APA led a successful town planning board process engaging all 14 related Hong Kong government departments for approval of the attraction. Ultimately, the town planning application was approved, however the project did not proceed for other reasons.

Pelican Peak Zipline, St Maartens
A new and unique Caribbean flight and cultural experience.

Pelican Peak puts a unique twist on the classic zipline by immersing guests in a cultural experience that digs into the rich history of St. Maarten.

The adventure begins at the base of Pelican Peak, located just steps from the cruise ship terminal. After an initial safety orientation riders will hop into our open air troop carrier and cruise through the lush hillside towards the summit. At the top visitors can explore various walking trails and lookout points to gain unique perspectives of the Caribbean Ocean and neighbouring islands. The flightline is positioned over 150 meters above sea level and runs 550 meters long. Riders will take in the natural beauty of St. Maarten as they soar towards Philipsburg’s Great Bay.

Pelican Peak is a Sea to Sky Ventures project, we work to preserve the environmental sanctity of the land while promoting conservation. Our goal is to provide our guests with an experience that combines the fun of attractions with the culture, beauty and history of St. Maarten.

Queen Elizabeth Park Celebrates 75 Years with Thrilling Zipline

In honor of Queen Elizabeth Park's 75th anniversary, the Vancouver Park Board approved the installation of a zipline built by Flightlinez Vancouver in partnership with APA. 

Queen Elizabeth Park is perched on Vancouver's highest point and the 190-meter-long, twin-cable route zipline enabled visitors to soar over an extinct volcano and land on the other side of the quarry garden, all the while enjoying breathtaking views of the North Shore mountains and downtown Vancouver's impressive skyline.

Flightlinez Vancouver was a draw card attraction that allowed both visitors and the locals to experience and benefit the community. This was achieved by attracting and educating visitors on the nature in the park while creating employment opportunities for Vancouver and economic return for the Parks Board.
