The longest zip line in Andalusia in Alhaurín de la Torre

The longest zip line in Andalusia opens on the 15th of May in Alhaurín de la Torre. Sunview Park Adventure is a new recreational space dedicated to adventure sports which offers the longest zip line in Andalusia and opens its doors on the 15th of May.

The zip line is 1,300 metres long and offers three types of launching: in Superman position (in which the maximum speed is reached, up to 100 km per hour, as the friction with the air is reduced), seated or in tandem (two people seated). The youngest members of the family will be able to take the plunge if they reach the minimum weight and age (to be determined).

Those brave enough to go on the zip line must leave their car at the starting point. After the launch, Sunview Park Adventure has an all-terrain vehicle that will take users back to the starting point as a shuttle.

The price is 26 euros for individual launches and 45 euros for tandem launches. Groups of six or more people will enjoy a 5% discount.

The activity can be completed with horse riding routes, for groups of at least four people and must be booked in advance. The price per person is 30 euros. The opening hours will initially be from 10 am to 10.30 pm from Thursday to Sunday and evenings and public holidays.

    Planning to come to Malaga in the spring 2021, do your rentals allow us to drive in Portugal? We would plan to return the car to Malaga.

    • Hi Charles, you can drive to Portugal, but there is an extra fee, amounting 8 €/day, with a minimum of 24 € and a maximum of 90 €.

    For my last booking, I could not get the announced 5% discount online and I wrote to let you know the problem. You answered that if I did not get a discount online, the discount will be applied manually. When I arrived last April the 18th the person of Malagacar told me he could not give the 5% discount. I did not want to discuss because it was already late.
    Now, I need to book a car from June 21st to July 13th. I went again on your website with login and password and again I have the same rate as every normal customer. I asked somebody to simulate the same booking online and he got the same rate as I had.
    Could you advise how I can get this discount. I have a login, password why does it not work ?
    This time, if I do not get my discount I’ll rent my car at another company.

    • Hello Thierry!
      Applying the discount manually means that it is applied by one of our colleagues at Bookings meanwhile processing your Booking confirmation. The car rental staff handing out the car cannot do this.
      Furthermore, if you are checking the prices for the FULL pack, we have running currently a special promotion. For your required dates, the is currently a 19% discount, which is far more than you would obtain with your customer menu. The system automatically applies the more beneficial discount to you.

      In that case, the discount won’t apply on the cars that are in promo already.

      Kind regards,

    Goog morning,
    We currently have a car on hire from your company. We have been hiring from your company for at least 10 years, sometimes twice a year – are we not entitled to a return customer discount/promo code as others here appear to,receive ?
    Kind regards,
