Hipster Downhill is an opportunity for kids aged 6 to 12 years to participate in a fun and non-competitive race environment.

Ages for Kidsworx Events will be recorded as age at 31st December 2020.

Hipster Downhill is a Participation Downhill Event for children born between 2008 to 2014.

Be a part of the action in the timed, non-competitive Hipster Downhill event on the Skyline Rotorua Gravity Park’s most popular trail. Kids from 6-12years are invited to take the gondola to the top of the mountain and drop into the chiseled berms of this flowy, enduro-style run, which finishes in the heart of the action. Hipster is long enough to be a true test of skill and endurance.

Parents are permitted to ride in the gondola with the participating child, however riding the course is not permitted.
